Providing strength and flexibility for the power generation industry
Vacu Braze provides precision thermal processing for the power generation industry. We offer a wide variety of services to fit the wide variety of needs required by this industry. This primarily includes brazing of critical sealing surfaces and complex honeycomb structures for land-based turbines. These components can be sealing surfaces between high and low pressure zones that require brazing assemblies to be within very tight tolerances, or wear surfaces that allow proper function of turbine blades.
Additional Heat Treatment Solutions
We offer services to meet the needs of other applications in power generation such as housings, fasteners, blades, gearing, shafts, and connectors. This can range from oil quenching 4340 tie bolts, age hardening Inconel X750 hex bolts, or providing post weld heat treatments to housings.
Precision Vacuum Processing
We perform all of our power generation brazing inside vacuum furnaces. This prevents surface oxidation or scale from forming on your parts while minimizing the dimensional distortion caused by heat treatment. Other applications may also be done in vacuum, such as the solution treatment and age hardening of high nickel alloys. Some materials benefit from a more aggressive quenching than the nitrogen gas used in vacuum furnaces. Materials such as 4140 or 4340 are processed in protected atmosphere furnaces to maximize their mechanical properties.
