What is Carburizing?

Carburizing introduces carbon into a solid ferrous alloy by holding above the critical temperature (Ac1) in contact with a suitable carbonaceous atmosphere which may be solid, liquid, or gas. The carburized alloy is usually rapidly cooled (quench hardened.)*

Gasbarre specializes in the design and manufacture of custom-engineered carburizing furnaces specific to the thermal processing industry.
