What we do


Bead Blasting

Glass bead blasting is an effective surface preparation technique used at Alberta Industrial to mechanically remove oxides, debris, and residue that can interfere with obtaining the best possible surface response in the material.

Fire in front in the heat treating machine

Many alloys can be thermally processed to change their mechanical properties. The heat-treating procedure depends on the alloy, the mechanical properties required, and the processing history of the steel. We have the equipment and expertise to maximize the performance of customer products.

Gas nitriding machine

Gas nitriding is a case hardening process performed at relatively low temperatures to minimize distortion and maintain the mechanical properties of the core. Post-Reaction Oxidation (PROTM) following nitriding provides a professional grey-black surface finish, which can improve corrosion-resistance.

Induction heat treating

Case Hardening technique which uses a combination of induction heating and water cooling to obtain as-quenched properties at the component surface without affecting the mechanical properties of the core. Induction is a versatile and cost-effective technique, which can be used to produce deep cases (>0.100 in).

Gas Carburizing

Gas carburizing is a high-temperature case-hardening process for low carbon steels that helps with wear-resistance, fatigue, and galling. Carburizing is a popular case hardening method because it is relatively quick (inexpensive), and is capable of achieving both high hardness (>62HRC) and deep case depths (>0.090 in.).
