Industrial Cryogenic Treatment

Thermal Cycling - The modern Industrial Revolution

The Cryocycle Thermal Cycling Process is not a surface treatment - it affects the entire mass of the component being treated.

  • This through material treatment means the process keeps working for the life of the component and the treatment does not cease to be effective after the surface is worn or otherwise damaged.
  • This unique cryocycle 'through material' effect even continues to provide the same benefit and wear resistance after grinding or sharpening - something coatings simply cannot do. 
  • The hardness of the material treated is unaffected so there is no additional tendency to crack or chip, while strength and durability are substantially increased.

Steel production is much better with CryocycleThe Cryocycle Thermal Cycling process represents a major technological breakthrough that can improve every aspect of Industry and production. The Thermal Cycling process  encompasses all the positive effects of cryogenics, but with the addition of multiple tempering stages significantly reduces, and in some cases eliminates, high frequency vibration in metal components, the most frequent cause of metal fatigue and wear.

By uniquely altering grain structures and precipitation at the molecular level, the Cryocycle Thermal Cycling process encourages extensive stress relief to take place in the materials being treated. This stress relief results in measurable reductions in micro-cracking as an added benefit to the substantial extension of wear properties. 
It has also proven capable of dramatically improving the performance and wear of a wide variety of parts, tooling and components used daily in manufacturing and industrial applications.

What is a proven fact is that industrial companies using the Cryocycle Thermal Cycling process have in some cases been able to reduce their tooling costs in excess of a staggering 50%.


Industry Applications
Engineering Drills, dies and mold's all benefit from application of the unique Thermal Cycling process, Increased wear life and usability of consumable components have add greatly to the bottom line of manufacturing companies. Recent testing with one of the largest steel manufacturers in the world demonstrated a 250% gain in life of slitters and blades saving 60-90 minutes of downtime per week at a production rate of 27 tones per minute!
Automotive While auto components show huge gains from application of the thermal cycling process, treatment of the tooling used to manufacture the cars and components have increased tool life by up to 400% on production line machinery used for drilling and cutting.Extensive use for thermal cycling  technology are being found daily in Australia by manufacturers such as Ford, General Motors and Toyota.
Mining From Saudi Arabia to the Gulf of Mexico, grinding metal into the earth in search of the riches hidden below is not a job for the weak. Application of the Thermal Cycling process to drill bits and other mining equipment including tunneling and underground mining grinders allows down time to be measured not in hours of operation but days.
Manufacturing Leading international companies know what it takes to build a strong and successful business. Use of the Cryocycle Thermal Cycling process has provided up to three times the life in cereal dies and an astounding increase in medical tablet punch life from 6 to 80 million tablets after application of the Cryocycle Thermal Cycling technology, leading to huge increases in profitability.
Defence Defence equipment is treated to reduce the chances of failure and corrosion, barrels and breaches, projectiles and other critical equipment that simply cannot fail.  This critical equipment is treated by the Cryocycle Thermal Cycling process to ensure performance at an unparalleled rate.
Construction The bridge is large but the bolts are small, in all areas of civil engineering and construction, components treated by the unique Thermal Cycling process have a corrosion resistance and tensile strength increase well beyond the levels of current engineering standards. All with only one thing in mind - safety.
Aviation From the stresses experienced in the 'controlled crash' of a fighter onto the deck of an aircraft carrier to the extremes of safety demanded for the turbine blades of a jet airliner, Thermal Cycling is redefining the way manufacturers and maintenance operators are able to approach aviation safety and component durability.
