Nitriding / Nitrocarburising
Fluidised Bed Nitriding
Gas nitriding is a form of case hardening which leaves a very hard, wear resistant nitride layer on the surface of a steel component being treated.
Ammonia, a nitrogen rich donor gas, is heated to a temperature at which it disassociates into its constituent parts, nitrogen and hydrogen. The nitrogen then diffuses into the surface of the component upon contact.
Fluidised bed nitriding is a specialised form of gas nitriding whereby a mixture of the donor gas and nitrogen is used to fluidise a heated bed of particulate. The rapid heat up and short furnace recovery times of fluidised beds allow the complete nitriding process times to be drastically reduced.
