One example of the high level of temperature uniformity is above.  This is a rocket tube processes in a fluid bed undergoing semi automatic Vickers hardness inspection.

Each rocket tube undergoes a 4 axis 20 hardness inspection test. After final machines each tube is subjected to a further 20 harness test, making in total 40 per.


If you’ve ever wondered why hardness test blocks are so accurate – its because a large percentage are heat treated in a fluid bed tube. 

 

 

 

Over 1000 rocket tubes have been processed todate will NIL rejects. The graph below is an inspection record of 26 tubes.
