The documentation of all process-relevant data plays an important role as proof of compliance with heat treatment regulations and for quality assurance. THERMCONCEPT offers a range of options for this purpose.
This standard covers requirements for temperature measurement in heat treatment plants of the aerospace industry and concerns furnaces and plants as well as their thermocouples, temperature controllers and displays. The documentation of heat treatment processes as well as regular system accuracy tests and temperature uniformity tests play an important role in quality assurance. These are carried out to ensure that components have been heat-treated in accordance with the applicable standards.
The heat treatment plants are grouped into furnace class (temperature distribution in the useful space) and instrumentation version (pyrometry version).
Furnace class 1 ±3°C
Furnace class 2 ±6°C
Furnace class 3 ±8°C
Furnace class 4 ±10°C
Furnace class 5 ±14°C
Furnace class 6 ±28°C

The CQI-9 is a self-assessment for the heat treatment of components in the automotive industry and was introduced by a working group of leading international automotive manufacturers and suppliers and the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) for continuous improvement, defect prevention and reduction of process deviations.
Relevant contents were taken from the AMS 2750 and adapted to the heat treatments in the automotive industry with regard to application requirements, available furnace technology and test frequencies.
