Surface® Combustion, Inc. has shipped a new Ion nitriding thermal processing furnace system for Watervliet Arsenal.
Watervliet was familiar with Surface Combustion’s multitude of furnace offerings and awarded a contract to Surface so they could again bring their processing capability in-house. Adding control to the supply chain for product was one of the many reasons Watervliet added an ion nitriding thermal processing furnace system to its plant.
Surface Combustion values customer relationships and believes that an equipment purchase is the beginning of something more than a finite transaction. Surface Combustion has been working with the Watervliet Arsenal location for more than 40 years.
“It is always great to see customers coming back to Surface because they appreciate our incredible product lines as well as our engineering capabilities and long-standing relationships,” said Ben Bernard, vice president of marketing at Surface.
The Surface Combustion ion nitriding system, with full controls, will be fully installed and commissioned in a horizontal configuration. This configuration best suits the facility and Watervliet Arsenal’s processing needs, and will also include process development.
This is the second ion nitriding furnace Surface has supplied to Watervliet. The first was more than 40 years ago.
