HEAT TREATMENT STUDIES
The following list provides an overview of Touchstone’s capabilities in heat treatment:
These furnaces emphasize radiative heat and have little convective or conductive heat unlike more traditional furnaces. They are capable of temperature ranges from room temperature to 2700 deg F or 1500 deg C.
Quartz lamps have been found to have broad uses at Touchstone from heating samples within the fatigue and tensile machines, to pre-heating the rolls in the rolling mill, to providing intense radiant heat for accelerated aging of polymeric coatings and materials.
Other uses include thermal shock testing and gradient furnace applications.
