Press release date: July 1, 2014

Specialty Steel Treating, a commercial heat treater with locations in Michigan and Connecticut, is adding a new AFC-Holcroft UBQ (Universal Batch Quench) integral quench furnace to their Fraser, Michigan, USA operation.

The UBQ batch furnace, size 36-48-36, is equipped with a top cool chamber, which offers additional cooling capacity for a variety of processes. The new furnace will be serviced by a new, double-ended UBTC (Universal Batch Transfer Car), which will be delivered in the same timeframe; both pieces will be integrated with furnace equipment already in production.

As a supplier of both standard and custom equipment, AFC-Holcroft customized their standard equipment designs to meet several specific requests from Specialty Steel Treating.

The new UBQ furnace will meet all of the requirements established in AMS2750E for a Class 2, Instrument Type C furnace system. At Specialty Steel Treating’s request, both nitrogen and endothermic gas will be delivered to the top cool system on the UBQ. The rail spacing was also adjusted on both the UBQ and the UBTC to accommodate the customer’s existing tray designs.

Specialty Steel Treating has had a long relationship with AFC-Holcroft, and uses several different varieties of AFC-Holcroft furnaces in their production facilities. They also recently ordered a new AFC-Holcroft multi-row pusher furnace designed for high capacity output, as well as some large capacity 36-72-38 UBQ batch equipment.
