is Cryogenic Treatment?
can you expect?
Industries - Non-Ferrous Metals
One of the mysteries of cryogenic processing is
that the process affects non ferrous materials such as copper, silver,
titanium and others.
Honeywell carried out research on thin film magnetic memory wafers.
They found that there was a relief of residual stresses, and an
increase in the conductivity of the metal layers of the wafer.
We found an increase in conductivity of copper. It is well known that
cryogenic processing can increase the life of copper welding
electrodes by a factor of two or more. The typical failure mode of
these electrodes is thermal cyclic fatigue.
One Japanese owned auto maker in the southern US has found
significantly increased abrasion resistance in aluminum. Racers find
that aluminum resists fatigue failure and increases the resistance of
pistons to detonation in racing engines. Of course, aluminum baseball
bats have been treated for years by athletes who want the best.
The stereo industry has found really interesting results in silver and
copper wire. Cryo treatment of vacuum tubes is well known.
Beyond metals, the treatment of plastic items is still gaining
momentum. CD's just plain sound better. Phenolic gears exhibit a huge
life increase. Nylon shows greater stability and greater life.
