Drop Quench Solution Annealing Furnace



Heat treatment of aluminium castings enhances their mechanical properties like UTS, Yield strength, Machinability and hardness. In the solution annealing procces, castings are taken to their eutectic temperature and then rapidly quenched in water. Equipment provided by Energy Systech includes the entire material handling system required to achieve this. Uniformity of temperature in the furnace results in very consistent properties in the castings.
