ASM to Host Atmospheres and Quenching Seminar in Houston

During a one-day Atmospheres and Quenching Seminar on Nov. 11, advanced atmosphere options for heat treating materials will be presented by top engineers from two leading voices in the heat treating and surface engineering community: Air Products and Surface Combustion. Advanced solutions for heat treat furnace atmospheres can have a powerful effect on product quality, safety and profitability, according to industry experts.

Presented in association with the Houston Chapter of ASM International, The Materials Information Society, the seminar will be held at Brady’s Landing in Houston.

Presenters will include Air Products engineers Mark Lanham and John Kaiser; Surface Combustion engineers Ralph Poor and Bill Cleary; Houghton International technical specialist Scott MacKenzie, and “The Heat Treat Doctor,” Dan Herring.

Presentations will cover atmosphere options for annealing, nitriding, sintering, and brazing, and will also describe quenching care, vacuum, carburizing and maintenance processing. The influence of atmosphere composition on product quality, process controls and flammability limits, and atmosphere troubleshooting and safety considerations will also be discussed.

Air Products and Surface Combustion engineers have tailored the seminar content to provide valuable information for materials procurement specialists, machine shop personnel, heat treaters, design engineers, manufacturing engineers, manufacturing managers, technicians, quality control inspectors, and marketing personnel. The seminar can particularly benefit those who are new to heat treating, as well as those who want to update their knowledge by meeting and talking with leaders in the heat treating industry.
