Controlled atmosphere chambers are used to control the surface chemistry of the metals that are being processed. This article focuses on the various types of controlled atmospheres used in induction heat treating and brazing, namely, inert gas atmospheres based on argon and helium; prepared and commercial nitrogen-base atmospheres; and brazing atmospheres. It provides detailed information on two types of controlled atmosphere chambers: atmosphere and vacuum. The article also describes the selection factors, advantages, and disadvantages of these chambers.
