Controlled atmosphere heat treatment can be applied in several segments of laboratory and industrial facilities where there is a need to heat quality industrial parts. In order for the parts to have consistency in heating, a controlled atmosphere oven is used, which makes it possible to obtain a heat treatment in which the process control is efficient and the parts produced come out as expected. When you want to prevent the reaction of the product placed in an oven from suffering the action of air, it is necessary to use a controlled atmosphere furnace.

The controlled atmosphere heat treatment method serves the aerospace industry, universities, mechanics, chemistry, laboratories, and many other industries and brings exceptional advantages in heating steel parts.

A controlled atmosphere furnace allows the introduction of one or more gases, which will start to react with the heated material, protecting it from the action of oxygen and water vapor contained in the air.



With the use of a controlled atmosphere furnace, it is possible to introduce other gas mixtures, which can be inert, such as nitrogen and argon, or active, such as hydrogen, endothermic gas, exothermic gas, or a mixture of them in any desired proportion.

A furnace with a controlled atmosphere must have, among its most important characteristics, the tightness of its chamber or muffle, to avoid the infiltration of external air. The safety aspect of handling and introducing desired gaseous atmospheres, especially those that can form explosive mixtures, is critical to safe operation.



The atmosphere furnace is a sophisticated piece of equipment. It offers features for precise heating, consistent thermal homogeneity, and full control over all parameters of the thermal process. Ideal for laboratories and industries that need to precisely control each thermal work, it is robust equipment that offers clean finishes and is free of residues that would cause oxidation.

In the atmosphere furnace operation, the part is heated completely and not just in the joint area. This is due to the operating system: the atmosphere furnace is composed of a large, heated steel chamber, which is powered by a specific gas, to create neutral (protective), reducing, or oxidizing atmospheres, as required by the line. Production in heat treatment.



With the use of controlled atmosphere heat treatment, your industry can achieve energy savings and, at the same time, high efficiency, even with the reduction of operating costs due to the lack of need for multiple operators. Controlled atmosphere heat treatment can be applied to pieces of all shapes and sizes while guaranteeing satisfactory results.

  • High Performance;
  • Low Energy Consumption;
  • Thermal Homogeneity;
  • Accurate Controls And Safety Devices;
  • Reduction Of Operating Costs;
  • Heating Parts In Any Format;
  • Safety For The Production Process;
  • Differentiated Finish.

The controlled atmosphere furnace, with integral tempering, is ideal for carburizing and tempering treatments and is the center of a complete heat treatment system, when it includes, in an integrated set, a tempering oven, a parts washer, and cars. of load transfer.
