Solar Atmospheres of Western PA Awarded Gulfstream Approval

Wednesday, January 15, 2020

Solar Atmospheres of Western Pennsylvania, Hermitage, PA, has announced its Gulfstream approval for material process specifications GAMPS 5101 and 5102. The first specification relates to the heat treatment of low alloy steels, and the second is associated with the annealing and precipitation hardening of PH stainless steel. Compliance to these two specifications are fundamental to ensure that flight-critical raw materials and parts are heat treated and tested properly. 

“This prime approval not only gives our current customer base permission to use our location for thermal processing of Gulfstream components, it also gives them the ability to run larger loads of 40,000 – 60,000 lb. at a time, due to our large furnace sizes,” explains Michael Johnson, sales manager. “The larger loads reduce the number of certifications, furnace charts, and mechanical testing documentation typically required post heat treating.”
