Heavy Steel Heat Treating: Stress Relieving, Normalizing and Annealing

The Halvorsen Company has the capabilities to heat treat heavy steel plate, parts, components, segments and sections. The industrial metalworking processes that we use to heat treat steel include stress relieving, normalizing and annealing. We use car bottom furnaces and other equipment to alter the physical and chemical properties of heavy steel plate materials so that we can form, bend, straighten and cut it.

We heat treat a variety of materials including heavy plate steel, heavy alloy plate, armor plate, carbon steel, stainless steel, non-ferrous steel and other types.

The Halvorsen Company heat treats steel and alloys used to fabricate:

  • Armor and other military components
  • Mining and wear resistant components
  • Alloy gear blanks
  • ASME Code pressure vessels
  • Process tanks
  • Storage tanks
  • Fabricated rings
  • Formed cones
  • Zinc and aluminum smelting pots
  • Spools
  • Galvanizing kettles
  • Rolled cones and rolled cylinders
  • Boiler components
  • Steam drums
  • Condensers
  • Blowdown tanks
  • Expansion tanks
  • Stainless steel tanks
  • Towers
  • Reactors
  • Filters
  • Flash tanks
  • Separators and associated power piping for the boiler and steam industry

We provide welding and weld repair services and solutions for large pressure vessels and heavy industrial equipment. Our equipment, press brakes and technicians are capable of rolling, bending, forming, cutting and heat treating heavy steel plate. Our experienced welders are capable of joining steel segments and steel sections with precise welds. We specialize in oxy-fuel welding which is commonly called oxyacetylene welding or oxy welding.

Since 1955, The Halvorsen Company has been an ASME code certificate holder of the following stamps: “U”, “S”, “A”, “H” and National Board “R”. Our welding and weld repair work can be tested by our quality control staff through the use of non-destructive methods which include Magnetic Particle (wet or dry), Liquid Penetrant, Radiography (X-ray), Visual and Ultrasonic.
