Heat recovery at a high temperature level is essential in industrial thermal processing. The use of ceramic materials yields higher temperatures and subsequently a higher efficiency. The present project aims to develop a new generation of ceramic heat exchangers for high temperature heat recovery with the target of significantly reducing the size and weight as well as also the price of such components by simplifying the manufacturing process and allowing a higher flexibility in the heat exchanger geometry. The use of precursors/template materials taken from the textile industries and a subsequent ceramic conversion is proposed as the main technological path for reaching the above objectives. Although this principal option is not new, there are no development efforts known, to utilize such a technological approach for industrial high temperature heat exchangers. The proposed route will lead to an increase in freedom of the geometric design at low costs for shaping. The development/refinement of the conversion process for such materials into a thermal-shock resistant gas-tight ceramic (e.g. silicon infiltrated silicon carbide) and the multi-objective optimization in terms of size, geometry, material and production costs is the major challenge of the proposed project. A complete ceramic heat exchanger component shaped by textile technologies is targeted. The combination/junction of existing robust ceramic components already applied in industrial furnaces, like silicon infiltrated SiC tubes, with compatible ceramic heat enhancement elements, built through the textile technology based manufacturing process, allows a robust construction in terms of application safety as an intermediate technology development step. At the same time a significant size reduction or increase of the heat recovery level can be achieved due to the higher heat transfer by the fine shaped and geometrically flexible heat enhancement elements.

This invited paper gives an overview of the process and furnace technology of controlled atmosphere furnaces and the requirements of European customers. Based on typical parts that are heat treated in atmosphere furnaces, the commonly used furnace types and their mechanical design (refractory, burners, etc.) are explained. Furthermore the required atmosphere and process control are mentioned, which is in direct correlation with the preferably used thermal and thermochemical processes. Finally quenching processes and the design of quenching devices will be discussed. An outlook to future developments of atmosphere furnaces will complete the paper. In this outlook the energy efficiency, primary measures for energy savings, and also energy recovery have a high priority and are very important to the European view in general. © 2013 IHTSE Partnership.

Within the classical gearbox manufacturing of an automotive company, heat treatment as a production step between soft and hard machining will mostly be located in a separate hardening area with transport of work pieces between the processing stations. In our fast-moving world, increasing flexibility and shorter lead times are called for, entailing a reduction of intermediate buffers in the production process and full integration of heat treatment into the production line. This paper outlines different solutions of a stepwise transition from a centralized hardening shop to integration of heat treatment in a line process. Ideally, this would be a conversion of the complete work process to a so-called "one-piece-flow". Heat treatment by induction is the ideal way for the manufacture of individual parts and thus perfectly suited for one-piece-flow production. Both individual inductive process steps, hardening and tempering, are described in detail and compared with conventional heat treatment. Terms and conditions for a switch-over to inductive short-time processes are presented and explained. Finally, this paper provides an outlook for future developments with regard to heat treatment as an integral element of the production line. © 2016 Carl Hanser Verlag GmbH & Co. KG.

Bainite hardening or austempering is a commonly used process especially in the bearing industry. In the last years an increased interest in austempering processes for different applications can be found. The first part of the presentation deals with the metallurgical requirements, the process technologies and the materials which can be used for an austempering process. Furthermore the advantages, but also the restrictions of the process are pointed out. Depending on the requirements, batch type furnaces or continuous plants can be used. The furnace design with regard to salt bath quenching and the most important factors influencing the parts' quality are explained. In the second part some practical applications of bainite hardening, the processes and the required furnace technologies are shown with regard to the specific heat treatment demands of the austempering products.


With investments in heat treatment plants, the principal question, if the production is carried out continuously or batch-wise, is clarified mostly at the beginning. Selection of the production principle finally depends on various single factors and has to be evaluated differently according to process and heat treatment material. Furthermore, the decision has to be met before an investment, whether the products shall/must be heat treated under protective gas or in open atmosphere. By means of isothermal annealing of forging parts, this decision process is discussed. There, plant concepts for discontinuous and continuous plants are presented, the single advantages and disadvantages are illustrated, and a cost comparison of continuous and discontinuous plants as well as with application of protective gas or without protective gas is carried out.

Conventional atmospheric furnaces are "state of the art" for case hardening of transmission gear parts for the automotive industry. Many customers appreciate the advantages of atmospheric furnaces, like low heat treatment costs, high availability of the furnace, good reproducibility of the heat treatment results, process control via oxygen probe, etc. Increased demands concerning the reduction of process time, reduced heat treatment costs and improved energy efficiency can be met by technical and technological innovations. This paper shows different aspects of time and cost savings for heat treatment of gear parts.
