STEAM SUPPLY SERVICE
We offer tank heating by steam supply through our recently new built 10MT steam boiler, in accordance with regulatory air emission requirements.
Available for vessels and barges up to 110 meter LOA.
In Nuon Storage B.V., we use heat treatment which involves the use of heating or chilling, normal to extreme temperatures to achieve a desired result such as hardening or softening of a material.
Heat treatment is a method used to alter the physical, and sometimes chemical properties of a material.
Our heat treatments also help with the following:
Annealing is achieved with heat treatment processes that require a neutral (or inert) controlled atmosphere.
Brazing allows diverse configurations of parts, dissimilar metals and non-metals of non-uniform thickness to be joined.
Carburizing & Carbonitriding
A carburizing atmosphere must be able to transfer carbon (also nitrogen in the case of carbontriding) to steel surface.
The use of nitrogen for gas wiping of galvanised strip and wire has been widely adopted to give a better surface finish.
Neutral hardening is a heat treatment procedure for steels with the aim to produce a martensitic microstructure.
Nitriding & Nitrocarburizing
These processes involve the diffusion of nitrogen into the surface layers of a low carbon steel at elevated temperature.
Quenching & Cooling
The use of gas quenching in vacuum furnaces has advantages over both conventional processing and liquid quenching.
Sintering produces parts that are harder (martenistic) and/or tougher (martenistic/bainitic) by controlled cooling rate.
Sub Zero Treatments
Use a moderately cold process for stabilisation and austenite removal or deep cold to improve wear resistance.
These range from Autoclaving to Hot Isostatic Pressing (HIP).
