Cryogenic Treatment for Vacuum Tubes

Vacuum tubes that are cryogenically treated can improve sound quality in music and audio applications. Cryogenic treatment, a process that modifies the micro-structure of metals by subjecting them to ultra-cold temperatures as -300° F, is commonly used to increase the durability and wear resistance of steels but can also maximize the sonic performance of electrical […]

Cryogenic Treatment of Tool Steels

The cryogenic treatment of tool steels reduces the percentage of retained austenite (RA) that remains after heat treatment and increases the amount of martensite. Using a computer-controlled program, cryogenic metal treatment gradually reduces the temperature of tool steels to -300° F and keeps them at this cryogenic temperature for 24 hours. By promoting the transformation […]

Cryogenic Treatment of Heat Treated Metal: Five Benefits

The cryogenic treatment of heat-treated metal is a one-time, permanent process that helps to eliminate residual stresses in metal components. Residual stress in materials is caused by a variety of things, including the actual formation of the metal, machining or casting, and the heat treatment process itself.  It is thought that after metal is formed […]

Cryogenic Treatment for Engines

Cryogenic treatment for engines relieves residual stresses in the metal caused by casting, forging, or machining operations. Cryogenic engine treatment also improves wear resistance and heat dissipation.
