The degree of temperature uniformity in the qualified work zone of the heat treatment furnace refers to the maximum deviation of the temperature of each test point in the qualified work zone relative to the set temperature.
NOTE: Usually it is expressed as "?????".
3.3 qualified work zone
In the heating furnace, the working space that meets the process temperature and temperature uniformity specified by the heat treatment is determined through temperature detection.
3.4 previewed qualified work zone
In order to judge the qualified work zone of the heat treatment furnace, before testing, it is a pre-assumed temperature measurement space based on the structure, control method and other conditions of the heat treatment furnace.

5.2 Periodic test
5.2.1 During the use of the heat treatment furnace, the qualified work zone shall be periodically tested. The test period shall comply with the requirements in Table 3. and the data recorder installed in the heat insulation box into the furnace. The data recorder will automatically track and record the temperature of each test point. 7 Test methods
7.1 General requirements
7.1.1 Under normal circumstances, no load test or load test can be used during testing. If it is a no load test, the measuring temperature sensor can be used directly for testing, or the measuring temperature sensor can be connected or inserted into the test block. The thickness of the test block shall be less than or equal to the thickness of the thinnest workpiece in the furnace. The maximum thickness shall not exceed 13 mm. The material of the test block shall have a room temperature thermal conductivity similar to that of the main material of the workpiece in the heat treatment furnace. If it is a load test, the test temperature sensor shall be connected to the dummy or workpiece. The simulated piece shall represent the thickness of the workpiece processed in the furnace. 7.1.2 The heat treatment furnace is in normal working condition during the test. Warm up at normal rate. The fan operates normally. The furnace door of the mesh belt furnace is in a normal opening and closing state.
7.1.3 The atmosphere used in the heat treatment furnace shall be the normal atmosphere used in production. For temperature sensors that are prone to contamination (for example, carburizing, nitriding, endothermic and exothermic atmospheres) or process atmospheres that pose safety risks (for example, atmospheres containing hydrogen or ammonia), air or an inert atmosphere can be used instead. The vacuum degree of the vacuum furnace shall be the lowest vacuum degree used in production, but the vacuum pressure shall not be less than 0.13 Pa.
7.1.4 When the workpiece is hot loaded into the furnace, the temperature at which the test temperature sensor is placed into the furnace shall not exceed the test temperature. When the process requires that the workpiece is cold and the furnace heats up, the test temperature sensor shall also heat up with the furnace.
7.1.5 A heat treatment furnace can have multiple qualified work zones. For multiple operating temperature ranges with different temperature uniformity requirements, or multiple qualified work zones with different temperature uniformity requirements, temperature uniformity measurements shall be performed separately.
7.2 Test temperatures
7.2.1 Initial test
The test temperatures for the initial test of the qualified work zone shall be the highest and lowest temperatures of each operating temperature range. When the operating temperature range is greater than 335??C, the test temperature point shall be added 7 Test steps
7.4.1 Test preparation
The measuring instruments and test sensors used for qualified work zone testing shall comply with the provisions of this document, be qualified in verification or calibration, and be within the effective period of use. The verification or calibration certificate of measuring instruments and test sensors shall indicate the correction value or error value at each verification or calibration temperature.
7.4.2 Sensor installation
7.4.2.1 According to the test temperature, select appropriate metal wire or other materials to fix the measurement sensor. If galvanized iron wire is used to fix the measuring sensor, the galvanized layer shall be removed in advance. When testing a vacuum furnace, stainless steel wire or nickel-based alloy wire shall be used to fix the measuring sensor.
7.4.2.2 When using a temperature measuring stand, each measuring sensor shall be fixed on the temperature measuring stand in a suitable manner to ensure that the measuring end of the sensor is at the specified position and the position does not change during the test.
7.4.2.3 When the measuring sensor or material rack with a temperature measuring frame is fixed, it can be placed in the furnace under cold furnace conditions according to process requirements. It can also be placed in the furnace at any temperature within the lower limit of the allowable temperature deviation from the lowest test temperature point.
7.4.2.4 Lead the reference end of the measuring sensor from the special temperature measuring hole of the heat treatment furnace. When leading out the reference end, prevent damage to the sealing and heat preservation properties of the heat treatment furnace. At the same time, the measuring sensor shall be prevented from being damaged by extrusion.
7.4.3 Sensor and instrument connection
7.4.3.1 Sensors and instruments are generally connected in the following three ways: a) The sensor reference terminal is directly connected to the input terminal of the instrument or data acquisition processor;
b) The sensor reference terminal is connected to one end of the compensation wire. The other end of the compensation wire is connected to the input terminal of the measuring instrument or data acquisition processor;
c) The sensor reference terminal is connected to the multi-channel automatic (scanning) switch input terminal of the measuring system device directly or through a compensation wire.
7.4.3.2 When the sensor is connected to the instrument, it shall be ensured that each terminal does not generate additional thermal electromotive force or resistance (the additional thermal electromotive force or resistance is small enough) to ensure the accuracy and reliability of the measurement results.

7.4.4 Data collection and processing
7.4.4.1 When testing temperature uniformity, data collection and recording shall start before the temperature of the first test sensor reaches the lower limit of the allowed deviation of the required temperature uniformity.
7.4.4.2 After the heat treatment furnace reaches a steady state, the collected data can be recorded in Table A.1 of Annex A. The collection time or frequency shall comply with the requirements in Table 10.
7.4.4.3 The effective data of the measuring sensor is corrected according to the correction value (or error value) of the corresponding temperature point of each measuring sensor, compensation wire and measuring instrument. Obtain the actual temperature value of each measurement position at each test temperature point. 7.4.4.4 For each test temperature point, use the difference between the actual temperature value of each measurement position and the test temperature set value as the temperature deviation value of the test position. Determine the maximum and minimum temperature deviation values for each test temperature.
7.4.4.5 When performing error correction, if the verification or calibration temperature point of the measuring sensor or measuring instrument does not correspond to the specified qualified work zone test temperature point, the error value of the verification sensor.
8 Evaluation of qualified work zone test
8.1 Through testing, it is assumed that when the actual temperatures of each test point in the qualified work zone are within the temperature uniformity range specified by the process, that is, the temperature uniformity is qualified, then this space is the qualified work zone of the process.
8.2 Based on the temperature uniformity test results, refer to Table 1 to determine the type of heat treatment furnace.
8.3 For the data measured according to the method specified in this document, if the temperature uniformity of one test point cannot meet the requirements, the measurement of the qualified work zone will fail. The assumed qualified work zone shall be changed or the heat treatment furnace shall be adjusted and retested. For example, when using a heat treatment furnace that lowers the furnace temperature uniformity requirements, repeated testing is not required as long as the new temperature uniformity conditions are met.
