Steel heat treatment

In the steel processing industry heat treatment is critical in both the primary processing of raw materials slab, billet, ingots and secondary processing of the final steel fabricated products (eg: carburized automotive gear parts) used in many different industrial market sectors.

Whether heat treating primary or secondary steel temperature monitoring and control is critical to the product quality, process efficiency, productivity and product yield.

In such heavy steel processing applications thru-process temperature monitoring is not, as you can imagine, the easiest of operations but employing years of experience in such markets PhoenixTM have developed a range of unique innovative application specific technical solutions. Such solutions are rugged, safe, reliable and used by many global customers to understand, control, improve and validate their steel heat treatment processes with confidence.
