This paper presents data collected from fan stations at the heat treatment facilities at Wyman Gordon Forgings. Physical characterization of the fan stations was achieved though measurement of air flow velocities at several fan speed settings. This data will assist in determining the exact level of uniformity across all three new fan stations, and compares the new fan stations to the current one. This is a critical component to the overall qualification of the new facility and will aid in ensuring similar cooling characteristics of the new heat treatment facility's fan stations. Ultimately, this work will help in providing products with the same microstructures, properties and performance as those processed through the existing heat treatment facility.
