Abbott Furnace Company provides industry-leading industrial furnace analytical services and consulting, including Furnace Atmosphere Analysis and Furnace Temperature Profiling.
The atmosphere in a furnace is critical. Depending on the furnace design, it can prevent oxidation, reduce oxides, help with delubrication, or control carbon. Maintaining the required atmosphere is essential for optimizing furnace performance, assuring production of a consistent, quality product, and improving process control.
Abbott’s atmosphere analysis verifies the atmosphere composition, quantity, and quality.
The analysis begins with establishing the baseline conditions. This includes checking the dew point and O2 of both incoming gases in all parts of the furnace and determining the temperature profile in the furnace. Ideally, it should be done as part of a regular preventative maintenance program and whenever the process is changed, problems occur during production.
FURNACE ATMOSPHERE ANALYSIS AND TEMPERATURE PROFILING
Abbott Furnace’s atmosphere profile is a detailed graphical representation of the atmosphere constituents and integrity. It provides the basis for re-setting furnace conditions or further atmosphere analysis and troubleshooting.
Abbott Furnace utilizes specialized equipment to generate these profiles. Abbott can provide either one-time or routine profiling services.
ISO/IEC 17025 specifies general requirements for the competence to carry out tests and calibrations, including sampling. It covers testing and calibration quality systems using standard methods and laboratory-developed or modified methods.
The standard consists of general, structural, resource, process, and management system requirements. The general, structural, and management system requirements relate primarily to the operation and effectiveness of the laboratory’s quality management system and the laboratory organization itself. The resource and process requirements include factors that determine the correctness and reliability of the tests and calibrations the laboratory conducts.
Abbott Furnace Company has been an ISO/IEC 17025 accredited calibration laboratory since 1992.
