Abstract: Numerous trademarked, standardized or proprietary nitriding and ferritic nitrocarburizing
recipes and control methods are used in various types of industrial furnaces. Surface Combustion has
developed a new tool to predict the in-process composition of nitriding and ferritic nitrocarburizing
atmospheres from these different processes. In addition, the activities and potentials of carbon,
nitrogen and oxygen can be found, leading to prediction of the associated equilibrium phase on the part
surface. The theory behind the tool and the application of the tool to control nitriding and ferritic
nitrocarburizing atmospheres will be discussed. An overview of different furnace designs and case
studies of commercial installations will also be presented.
Biography: Mr. Bernard is currently President of Surface Combustion, Inc. Surface is a highly respected
producer of thermal processing equipment, headquartered in Maumee, Ohio. Since its founding in 1915,
Surface has continued to develop innovative heat treating solutions for a wide variety of industries.
Surface holds 75 trademarks, 675 patents and has installed 250,000+ thermal systems throughout its
history.
Prior to his current role, Mr. Bernard has held a series of leadership positions both within Surface and
the industry, most recently as Director of Technical Services and Research and Development for the
company. He holds a bachelor’s degree in physics from Bowdoin College and a master’s degree in
material science and engineering from Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI).
