Heat treaters regularly seek ways to prevent and reduce rework and scrap loads by implementing procedures and tools to make sure the heat treating process meets customer expectations and specifications. One process parameter requirement is to ensure consistent atmosphere carbon content. Measuring carbon absorption into steel is commonly done to verify atmosphere consistency. This article describes an atmosphere carbon potential analyzer that provides a cost-effective way to measure carbon using a wire coil that functions in a way similar to using shim stock.
