| CarterCryo-Treating can dramatically increase the wear life of almost
anything. By re-aligning the molecular structure of metallic and
fibrous materials, Cryogenic
treatment can make materials tougher and
more wear resistant
and will relieve inherent stresses within a piece. Metals such as
steel, cast iron, tool steel, stainless steel, aluminum,
titanium, brass, spring steel, carbide, and others all benefit from Cryogenic treatment. Carbon fiber, rubber and composites can also
benefit from Cryogenic
treatment. The process is so gentle even
light bulbs and computers will survive! However, we will only
freeze inanimate objects... Nothing that is alive or was once alive!
Stress relief of engine parts is a huge benefit from Cryogenic treatment. Parts like crankshafts, connecting rods, and valve springs are far less likely to break. The stress relief benefits of Cryogenic treatment also aid in dimensional stability of a part. Engine parts are much more wear resistant after Cryogenics.
On tests I have done for myself, I have found that light bulbs not only seem to last considerably longer, but they burn brighter also! Carbide boring bar bits have bored an amazing 11 times more cylinders than non-Cryogenic Treated bits! Tooling cuts more accurately and chatters less. Cryogenic Treated parts machine better.
Our process is computer controlled to take the temperature down slowly at the rate of 1° per minute over a 6 hour time period. Once down to -320°F, we allow the parts to "soak" for 24 hours. The temperature is then brought back to ambient room temp at the rate of 1° per minute over 6 hours or so. The entire process takes 2 days from start to finish.
Cryogenic Treatment can save you money in replacement and maintenance costs as well as help make your personal and professional life better! With such a wide range of products that may benefit from Cryogenic Treatment, why not give us a try?
CarterCryo-Treatment can actually change the molecular structure into a much more uniform and evenly distributed structure!
