Leaf spring tempering
Leaf Spring Heat Treating
An expansion of Pyromaitre’s core market, the leaf spring market has presented several opportunities for conversion to lean tempering. In addition to the significant speed advantages (40 minutes as opposed to the conventional 120 minutes) our leaf spring machines deliver further operating cost advantages. The conventional oven requires a 3 million BTU burner system, while the Pyro high-speed oven only requires only 1.5 million BTU for the same capacity. The reduced length of the oven enables the use of air for cooling rather than the traditional use of water. The waste heat from the air-cooling chamber is used to heat the building during the winter months, thus offsetting monthly plant heating bills. Operators are pleased to work with clean dry parts and have eliminated the use of rubber aprons and gloves for a more convenient for easier processing.
