Aging Oven Product Information

Aluminum Aging is the process of aging or hardening aluminum to the desired physical properties for the application. This process, also known as age hardening or precipitation hardening is typically performed between 250°F (121°C) and 400°F (204°C).

HeatTek’s Aging Ovens are custom designed to meet the application's exact requirements. Durable construction, high-velocity airflow throughout the chamber and state of the art controls insure the oven will meet the industries toughest MIL-Spec and industry standards.
