Stress Relief Furnaces
Stress Relief Furnaces relieve stresses in materials generated by welding, machining, or heat processing.
The purpose of a Stress Relief Furnace is to raise the temperature of a component to slightly below the transformation temperature. This elevation in temperature eliminates internal stresses caused by secondary processes such as welding, machining, or cold forming. Upon reaching completion of the heat-up and hold cycle, the parts are then cooled at a controlled rate.
