Stress Relieving of a Large Steel Weldment for the Energy (Nuclear) Industry
(Click on thumbnail to enlarge)
This A36 steel weldment was stress relieved for a customer in the nuclear industry. The weldment is a crane trolley frame which is used on an overhead bridge and is an example of our ability to treat large fabrications. It measures 40' in length, 12' in width, 10' in height, and weighs 20 tons. Welding and other fabrication processes can cause high internal stresses within the finished structure. By heating the structure, those stresses are released without modifying any of the desired material properties.
This weldment was heated to 1150°F and temperatures were maintained to within ±15°F during the heating period. This project was turned around in one day after arrival at our facility. As a third generation heat treating company, we have invested in a range of furnace sizes and types to accommodate a myriad of part sizes and shapes. Properly treating large fabrications is especially challenging. We excel at providing effective solutions to challenging heat treating applications.
For added convenience, local pick-up and delivery is available for customers within 100 miles of our facility in Milwaukee, WI. For additional details about this stress relieving project complete for the nuclear energy industry, see the table below, or contact us directly.
