Books
The endothermic generator – the processing of protective gas

NEW: Owing to great demand, the following publication has appeared in its 2nd revised edition:

The endothermic generator – the processing of protective gas

Practical experiences for the user

2nd revised edition

Jürgen Klix, engineer (FH)

Several generators supply a large number of furnaces with endothermic gas. Numerous lectures and publications set out the advantages and disadvantages and make comparisons with other processes. This brochure is designed to help readers familiarise themselves with the subject. The author has been collating and annotating documents, tables, drawings, charts and calculations about this for decades.

Introduction to the technology of protective and reaction gases
Bild Schutzgas Publikation

Schweizerischer Verband für die Wärmebehandlung von Stoffen (Swiss association for the heat treatment of materials) [Ed.]

Protective and reaction gases play a significant role in industrial heat treatment technology and require a certain understanding of chemical processes on the part of the personnel responsible. For non-chemists this occasionally presents problems when using the respective process, even more so in the absence of a suitable introduction to this specialised area. This book was created to help in such circumstances.

A printed version is not currently available.

Introduction to protective gas technology
Grafik_schutzgastechnik

C. Béguin, engineer

The publication "Introduction to protective gas technology" provides a clear explanation of the air, its composition and the properties of gases, and in particular goes into gaseous atmospheres on the basis of nitrogen and methanol. It also describes gaseous atmospheres which can be generated with the help of gas generators.

As this publication is unfortunately not available electronically, we would be happy to send you a print copy on request. Please use the contact form for this.
Endothermic gas generators in the automotive industry
Bild Erfahrungsbericht

A practical field report

Gebrüder Hammer GmbH [ed.]

A protective gas containing CO and H2 is always necessary in industrial furnaces for thermochemical heat treatment. In this field report, which focuses on the automotive industry, the retrofitting and replacement of gas generators are described in detail. In particular the advantages of the resultant gas atmospheres are set out in detail and discussed. At the same time this report reflects aspects of positive efficiency for the plant operator.
