This course teaches the background and practical applications of vacuum furnace heat treating. The student will be introduced to the fundamentals of vacuum furnaces and related system components. A complete understanding of vacuum measurement and vacuum pumping systems needed to perform various vacuum heat treating processes will be reviewed. This course provides a practical understanding of vacuum technology as related to heat treating and is as a follow up to courses which cover the fundamental metallurgy of what happens when metals are heated and cooled. This course will include hands on instruction utilizing the new ASM Laboratory Vacuum Furnace and include examples of real world heat treating cycles.
