Can-Eng Furnaces International Ltd. was recently contracted to engineer and commission two large-capacity heat-treatment furnaces.

The furnaces are for a global producer of highly engineered metal earth moving, construction and mining wear equipment.

As part of this turn-key contract, Can-Eng designed and commissioned individual tempering and stress relieving furnaces.  Both heat treatment systems were assembled and tested at Can-Eng’s Niagara Falls facility prior to shipment and commissioning at the customer’s facility.

The furnace systems were part of a major expansion by the customer to satisfy increased demand for large steel castings and weldments used as part of their equipment designs. Both furnaces are equipped with high-efficiency, natural gas-fired heating and recirculation systems that have demonstrated to exceed the requirements of AMS-2750 temperature uniformity.

Can-Eng Furnaces International Ltd. was selected as the vendor of choice largely due to the higher level of in-house heat-treatment equipment, engineering capabilities, and design experience. The customer was specifically impressed with Can-Eng’s controls capability to seamlessly integrate the system’s Level 1 controls with the company’s existing Plant Supervisory and Production Control Systems (Levels 2 and 3).  Both Systems integrated the company’s preferred PLC hardware which was upgraded to include a more flexible safety rated PLC over conventional hardwired safety circuits.
