Industrial Steam Treating Furnace

Steam Treating Process

Steam treating is used to produce an oxide layer over the surface of an iron part to make it more durable. Steam treating increases corrosion resistance, hardness, density, and certain magnetic properties of iron-based parts. Stream treating is done in a heat treat furnace with a controlled atmosphere. The reaction of the water vapor with the iron creates the oxide layer that results in a blue/black finish.
