When required by our customers, we have the in-house capability to successfully heat treat forgings to meet tight specifications. Metallurgical control the entire way through the manufacturing process of each forging / rolled ring is extremely important in producing top quality products.
Initially built in 1985 and modernized in 2015/2016 during the multi-million dollar capital improvement project, GULFCO now operates a fully equipped heat-treat facility. The capabilities enable us to offer the full range of heat treatment cycles using our 20,000-gallon polymer and water quench tanks as applicable for carbon, alloy, and stainless steels.
Augmented with in-house Brinell Hardness testing equipment, we are able to quickly confirm initial feedback into the process. By not relying on outside sources, we can process customer orders faster while maintaining GULFCO’s internal quality assurance standards are being met.
