New publication

Personnel free times in heat treat operations:

The question regularly arises in heat treatment shops as to whether personnel must be present at all times and in all operating states. This article of the AWT Technical Committee 8 "Safety in Heat Treatment Plants" is intended to support heat treatment plants in their concept for personnel-free times.
Due to the wide variety of heat treatment plants and processes as well as the design depending on the year of construction and the manufacturer, this article can only give suggestions as to what has to be taken into account when developing such a concept.
