High Desert Heat Treating offers the following heat treating services:
Quench and Temper of Alloy Steel
Quenching and tempering are processes that strengthen and harden materials like steel and other iron-based alloys. The process of quenching or quench hardening involves heating the material and then rapidly cooling it to set the components into place as quickly as possible.
Carburizing / Gas Nitriding
Carburizing is a heat treatment process in which iron or steel absorbs carbon while the metal is heated in the presence of a carbon-bearing material, such as charcoal or carbon monoxide. The intent is to make the metal harder.
Stress Relieving is a heat treating process that consists of heating the steel to a temperature below the critical range to relieve the residual stresses resulting from hot rolling, welding, shearing, or gas cutting.
Annealing is a heat treatment that alters the physical and sometimes chemical properties of a material to increase its ductility and reduce its hardness, making it more workable.
Normalization is an annealing process applied to ferrous alloys to give the material a uniform fine-grained structure and to avoid excess softening in steel.

100% HRC Testing
The Rockwell test measuring the depth of penetration of an indenter under a large load compared to the penetration made by a preload.
Masking is used in most metal finishing operations where a specifically defined area of the surface of a part must be exposed to a process.
Tempering (Pre-hardened Material)
Tempering is a heat treatment technique applied to ferrous alloys, such as steel or cast iron, to achieve greater toughness by decreasing the hardness of the alloy.
Certificate of Conformance
HDHT has a scalable CoC procedure, based on AMS and NADCAP requirements.
We can issue basic hardness certs, time and temperate provide charts and or load thermocouple certification depending on the customers need.
