Heat Treating Applications for the Manufacturing and Materials Processing Industry

The Right Atmosphere to Strengthen Your Processes!

When it comes to finding processes that strengthen your metals, Linde can help your business get ahead. Heat treating enhances the strength and durability of metals and we’ll work with you to build the toughest parts possible. We offer a diverse portfolio of heat treating applications that can improve the quality and appearance of your metals, make highly reproducible parts and give you better control over your process. From annealing and brazing to sintering and carburizing, our nitrogen-based heat-treating applications are low in cost, high in productivity, and help you meet the stringent standards of the transportation industry.

Heat Treating Applications


Annealing is the process of heating steel above the transformation temperature and slowly cooling it to increase the workability of the metal. Gas-based atmospheres are also required to achieve a bright annealed surface finish.

Furnace Brazing

Furnace brazing is commonly used when large batches of parts are to be processed at one time. We provide a reducing atmosphere to help you produce higher-quality joints, control heat temperatures and improve production rates.

Carburizing & Hardening

Carburizing is a heat treatment process in which steel absorbs carbon while the metal is heated. Our technology provides ideal conditions for better control and repeatability.

Gas Quenching & Inerting

Furnace inerting and parts quenching are common heat treating applications. We offer gases in a variety of supply systems to meet your process requirements.

Nitriding & Nitrocarburizing

Nitriding and nitrocarburizing can help you increase surface wear resistance. This requires a safe and reliable supply of ammonia in order to achieve excellent process results.
