Flame Hardening

GRIFLAM® flame hardening technology – our made to measure solution for case hardening of your components. Through our individually manufactured GRIFLAM® flame hardening torches, heat can be introduced targeted to the case layers of the part. By quenching with water or compressed air the hardness can thus be increased in a targeted way and the surface protected against abrasion.

Your advantages:

  • Heat input on exactly the right spot
  • individual consultancy
  • layout of the complete gas supply system
  • application technicians for tests, commissioning and service

Areas of application

  • toolmaking industry (pliers, axes, etc.)
  • engineering
  • steel working
  • manufacture of rails and track

Technical information

  • Acetylene / Oxygen
  • Propane, Methane, MAPP / Oxygen
  • individual shapes on request
  • with built-in quenching shower head

The process is suitable for quenchable iron materials as well as for construction and tempering steels with at least 0,3% C content. The hardness can be influenced directly depending upon the feed speed or hardening time and distance to the water or compressed air nozzle.


In our catalogue we present our entire GRIFLAM® standard program with over 750 high quality products.

We are sure that you will find innovative suggestions for your technical heating requirements in our GRIFLAM® catalogue.
