Abstract Ferrous metal heat treating technologies are identified for the following categories: through heat treating and selective heat treating. Current market profiles are developed for the various ferrous metal heat treating technologies segmented by furnace type and process type. Preliminary findings show an estimated population of over 52,000 heat treating furnaces. Of these, approximately 55 percent are fossil fuel-fired batch technologies (mainly natural gas), 15 percent are fossil fuel-fired continuous technologies, and 30 percent are electric induction technologies. Significant R&D opportunities for improving the competitiveness of natural gas in the ferrous metal heat treating market are explored.
