Homogenizing

Product Overview

Homogenizing Furnaces

The term “homogenization” refers to the process of making things more uniform or similar and is a form of annealing know as diffusion. Homogenizing ovens are often used to process aluminum alloys to ensure the precipitating elements are evenly distributed, creating a uniform internal structure and high-quality aluminum product that is easier to machine and work with.

Withing the oven, the aluminum part is heated to a temperature very near its melting point, often exceeding 10 hours, and then it is slowly cooled. An additional benefit to the homogenizing process is that it can also reduce internal stresses so that cracking and deformation are less likely to occur. After the heating is complete, the cooling process begins with a soak in a quench media which is followed by a cooldown period.

Aluminum heat treatments almost always require extreme precision when it comes to temperature control, so the furnace you choose must be able to not only accurately determine temperature but also distribute heat extremely evenly.

Epcon’s Industrial homogenizing Furnaces are custom designed to meet the specific requirements for each application. From concept through manufacturing, acceptance testing at our site to start-up, commissioning and service/support, the team of experts at Epcon work together with you to insure 100% customer satisfaction.
