heat treatment methods banner


Flexible Ceramic Pads (FCPs) may be the most recognizable method of heat treatment in our industry. FCP's resistance to the glow of electric current generates heat and is transferred through the process of conduction.

FCPs can be operated individually, in small groups or by the thousands on a massive heating project, providing optimal temperature control and accuracy. When your heat treatment project requires mobility, flexibility, and control accuracy, Analytic Stress' electrical resisitance heat treatment is the best route to go.

Analytic Stress has the largest number of fixed-base furnaces on the Gulf Coast, with 28 strategically located between Corpus Christi, Texas and Mobile, Alabama. Our extensive equipment availability means you can complete your heating project in the most efficient, cost-effective way possible.

Our unique equipment design consists of a one-piece furnace that travels on twin rails and closes against a fixed wall. Our furnaces are designed with fixed hearths that provide the foundation needed for extremely heavy loads-up to 50 tons-and eliminate the risk of damage caused by shifting workpieces due to rolling or closing hearths. Analytic Stress’ furnaces are quality-assured with surveys and calibrations compliant with the most stringent of standards, including API.
