Q: Are all your furnaces/equipment accredited per the appropriate Nadcap/AMS specs?
Yes. AMS 2750E must be adhered to for Nadcap certification. All of our furnaces meet the AMS 2750 Pyrometry specification, which outlines various processes, such as calibration data, record archiving, System Accuracy Testing (SAT), and Temperature Uniformity Surveys (TUS). Instrumentation type and classification are the two categories required by the AMS 2750E standard for furnaces; specifically, Class 5 for vacuum furnaces. Customers can download and review our certifications, including Nadcap on our Certifications and Approvals page.
