Abbott Furnace Company provides industry-leading, industrial furnace consulting and analytical services 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 important for optimizing furnace performance, assuring production of a consistent, quality product and improving process control.
Abbott’s atmosphere analysis provides verification of the atmosphere composition, quantity and quality.
Analysis begins with establishing the baseline conditions. This includes checking dew point and O2 of both incoming gases and in all parts of the furnace, as well as 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 or problems occur during production.
