Bench Top Tempering & Drawing Furnaces / Ovens
Tempering / Drawing is a post-quenching or post hardening heat treatment process to "draw the temper" (reduce brittleness, increase toughness) after hardening of tool steels. Recommended soaking time is 2 hours for each inch of cross section. Keith Bench Top Tempering Furnaces rated to 1250°F include a convection fan and a vertical rising door for operator safety and are often a companion to the Bench Top Metal Hardening Furnace rated for 2250°F (check out our space saving dual chamber furnaces). Options include inert gas atmosphere to reduce scaling, AMS 2750F instrumention type D or CQI-9 package for NADCAP certification and various temperature controllers.
