Career - Heat Treater

I need assistance to choose
Heat Treaters will load items to be treated into the furnace and bring the metal to a specified temperature and will use computer-controlled furnaces. They will use new technologies, such as advanced vacuum furnaces and will check all gauges and controls during treatment to make sure they are working correctly. They will be capable to harden metal by heating it to the required temperatures (this varies with different metals) and dipping it in oil, gas, water, brine or other solutions. They will be able to surface-harden metal components to improve their resistance to wear and abrasion and will use special instruments to test the hardness and mechanical properties of treated metals.
