Effects of quenching of aluminum parts

The aluminum heat treatment industry has a great variety of products and processes designed to enhance the material’s physical properties. Quenching is a process that involves cooling the workpiece at a rapid rate to increase its hardness. An important aspect of this process is the uniformity with which the workpiece is cooled, since an uneven […]

Nutec Bickley expertise with saving fuel with preheated air

For fuel fired kilns and furnaces using preheated combustion air is one of the most efficient ways of saving energy. Typically a heat exchanger is installed in the exhaust stack which recuperates the energy normally going to the atmosphere and is transferred to the incoming combustion air. Heat can be recovered either via a recuperator […]

NUTEC BICKLEY’S TECHNOLOGY: ADVANCED TOOLS FOR FURNACE DESIGN AND OPTIMIZITION FOR HEAT TREATING PROCESSES

Heat treating processes usually require very tight temperature uniformities which depend highly on furnace design and control algorithms. At Nutec Bickley we use ANSYS OpenFoam, one of  the most advanced tools in Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD), to optimize furnace geometry, quantity of burners, burner location, exhaust location etc. During furnace commissioning, thermography and flue gases […]
