Solution Treatment and Age Hardening Furnace


The Aluminum T6 process is comprised of solution treating which includes heating, then quickly quenching, followed by aging to develop final properties. The keys to success are accurate temperature control and fast, precise transfers between steps.

Two examples are shown on this page.

The video (to the right) highlights some of HTF Aluminum heat treat systems built over the years. 

 
ALUMINUM T6 SOLUTION TREATMENT & AGE HARDENING FURNACE

 

This system offers very high production in a very compact foot print.

Snowmobile engine heads are processed in 1,000 pound loads through an L-shaped four-step system with these features:
  • solution treating furnace

  • high-performance quench tank

  • aging oven

  • cool-down station

  • chain conveyor indexing between stations
  •                ALUMINUM T6 PROCESS FURNACE

     

    This batch of 44 foot aircraft structural shapes are heated in a 63 foot, high-flow forced convection batch furnace with an integral hoist and swing bottom door. The load’s uniformity is +/- 4 °F. To achieve the quick quench, the swing door opens and the load is rapidly lowered into a 70 foot quench tank. The picture shows a product load being positioned for connecting to the furnace’s hoist cable.

    The superb temperature uniformity of the solution furnace and the uniform quench produce minimal distortion in this very large component.
