Heat treatment has been used by mankind for centuries. While not as advanced as the controlled heat treatment we think of today, the principles and philosophies of heat-treating metal date back over 2000 years. It’s an age-old practice that has been fine-tuned through years of science and technology to become one of the most essential processes during manufacturing, repair, and fabrication requirements.

There are numerous reasons to heat treat along with a few different methods of heat treating. The use spans across many industries, including oil and gas, power, chemical, automotive, aerospace, and consumer product manufacturing (i.e., glass, knives, utensils, etc.).

This brief eBook covers the techniques commonly used in the refining, power, and petrochemical industry including the varying reasons to heat treat, the types of heat treating available, and methods of heat treating to achieve specific material properties. Additionally, this eBook covers the role mechanical integrity plays in heat treating including special considerations, and the role of inspection during the process.
