Thermex Metal Treating Expands Plant Capacity with Seco/Warwick’s ZeroFlow Technology


Thermex Metal Treating is expanding capacity at its facility in Canada with the purchase of a gas nitrider with vertical pit-style loading and Seco/Warwick’s proprietary ZeroFlow™ control technology and ferritic nitrocarburizing capability.

Thermex offers a wide range of ferrous metal heat treating processes and services in Western Canada from its base in Edmonton, Alberta. The purchase of this state-of-the-art equipment keeps with Thermex’s ongoing commitment to continuous improvement, integration of new technology, and high-quality customer service.

“Combined with Seco/Warwick’s R&D testing capabilities and its experience in gas nitriding, we felt this was our best option to offer exacting nitriding solutions for our customers and our large load requirements,” said Norm Hanson, Thermex’s president.

Seco/Warwick is a technology leader with the proprietary ZeroFlow method of economical gas flow and precision nitrided layer control. The furnace is being designed and manufactured in Seco/Warwick’s facility in Meadville, Pennsylvania.

“We are pleased to partner with Thermex to provide this new technology alternative to traditional nitriding methods, designed specifically to reduce process costs while improving process efficiency,” said Jonathan Markley, Seco/Warwick’s managing director.
