Sintering Gas Atmospheres

For ferrous or non-ferrous metals, the use of nitrogen or hydrogen-based atmospheres can help you achieve the control and purity that are difficult to obtain with generated atmospheres. Nitrogen or hydrogen-based atmospheres help minimize the variations in atmosphere composition and dew point that are common with endothermic and dissociated ammonia atmospheres. Air Products has extensive experience in helping customers optimize their sintering atmospheres to improve their operations.

Equipment

Analytical Panels

These panels allow you to measure hydrogen, moisture, oxygen, carbon dioxide, and hydrocarbon concentrations in furnace atmospheres for real-time monitoring and control of your furnace parameters. This information can help you improve operational consistency, flexibility, quality and safety.

Atmosphere Humidification System

Service life of a stainless steel mesh belt can be extended by increasing the dew point of a dry nitrogen-hydrogen furnace atmosphere using Air Products' atmosphere humidification system, which can reduce manufacturing costs and downtime.

Gas Blending and Flow-Control Equipment

Air Products has pioneered and patented blending and flow control equipment for a wide range of gases, blends and flowrates. Our custom and standard panels can provide consistent atmospheres by helping you accurately control gas flows and pressures, precise gas compositions and operational flexibility. Our panels also incorporate design features that meet NFPA 86 codes.

Nitrogen Supply Monitoring Systems

Our nitrogen supply monitoring system can help you improve process safety related to flammable atmospheres and embrittlement of carbon steel components. The system monitors nitrogen supply parameters, such as storage tank level, pressure and nitrogen house-line temperature to provide operators with an alarm if the levels fall below desired settings.
