Innovations in Metal Treatment


Next-Level Metal Processing

SANOVA is an innovator dedicated to solving complex metal treatment challenges. It was co-founded by renowned metallurgy scientist Dr. Saveliy Gugel and employs top experts in the fields of metallurgical chemistry and engineering with decades of academic and practical experience. Since 2005, we have developed a number of proprietary custom metal and alloy processing technologies that are highly advanced and effective, while easy to implement and use, inexpensive and safe. Through imploved thermo-chemical processing and subsequent heat treatment, we are able to generate best properties of diffusion protective case and core of practically and metal and alloy component in a shorter processing time and at a lower cost. Many industries and applications benefit from our technologies, which enhance performance and extend service life of various metal components and tools.

The foundation of all new custom SANOVA technologies are the two new patented (United States Patent No. 5,798,002, Canadian Patent No. 2,283,213) highly advanced base technologies:

LINTERPROCESS™ & LINHEAT™
(Liquid Internal Thermo-Chemical Processing) (Liquid Internal Heat Treatment)
These simple, inexpensive, safe and highly effective treatment technologies, applied individually or as stages in integrated processes, dramatically boost metal performance characteristics, such as hardness, stiffness, friction coefficient, resistance to erosion, corrosion, wear, fretting, just to name a few, which significantly enhance reliability and longevity of metal components and tooling and broadens application base for many metals.


LINTERPROCESS™

LINTERPROCESS™enables rapid creation of wide range of superior diffusion protective surface layers on various metal components by applying intense direct internal heating (inductive, resistive, contact, etc.) while encasing the component in processing chamber containing active media (AM). Resulting protective cases are durable diffusion protective surface layers with gradual enhancement of chemical composition, microstructure and properties of metal by dissociation of special AM with custom composition of alloying elements on the metal surface and application of precise treatment parameters, such as heating treatment duration,component position and movement in the working chamber, volume of supplied AM, etc.

LINHEAT™

LINHEAT™enables the application of any type of heat treatment in the same working chamber, before and after thermo-chemical processing of a metal component, such as application of LINTERPROCESS™ technology, or on its own. It is used to further enhance the final properties of the diffusion case and core of a metal component. It eliminates the need for additional processing equipment, relocation of the component for additional heat treatment, cleaning/protection of the component and other additional processing steps. LINHEAT™ processing in controlling and protective atmosphere can be applied to the metal component together with or independent of the thermo-chemical
processing.
