SPEAKER: T. SCOTT KREILICK President & CEO

TOPIC: Conservation & Restoration of Historic Metal Sculpture, Architecture and Objects This presentation will focus on the conservation and restoration of historic metals in the Mid-Atlantic region, with a particular emphasis on bronze and iron (both wrought and cast). The goals of conservation are to mitigate the natural deterioration of historic materials and to minimize the loss of historic fabric during cleaning and maintenance. The goal of restoration is to return an object to the appearance it had at some point in the past. Often, these goals come into conflict with each other. When one factors in exterior weathering or the utilitarian use of an object, the challenges become more complex. T. Scott Kreilick is President, CEO, and Principal Conservator of Kreilick Conservation, LLC. Established in 1996, Kreilick Conservation provides condition assessments, laboratory and field analysis of materials, emergency response and stabilization, treatment, documentation, and maintenance of architecture, monuments, sculpture, industrial artifacts, and objects. Kreilick Conservation, LLC has performed conser-

Meeting - Thursday, February 19, 2015

Chairperson's Message February 2015 I can’t believe it’s February already, and we’re halfway through the ASM season. Thank goodness our weather has not been as bad as our friends in New England. Even though the groundhog predicted six more weeks of winter, perhaps we can get by without a major snow event! Last month’s speaker, Prof. Linda Schadler presented a fascinating talk about nanomaterials and their potential to solve some of the worlds global challenges, including more efficient use of energy. Afterward our members enjoyed a lively conversation with Prof. Schadler, and a special visit from former colleagues at the University of Pennsylvania. It was a fun evening! A special thanks goes to Ron Smith from S-Bond Technologies, and meeting sponsors, Laboratory Testing Inc., and Robert Wooler Inc. Coming up this month on February 19th, our Continuing Education Night will prove to be quite captivating. Mr. Scott Kreilick, President & CEO of Kreilick Conservation will present a talk about Conservation and Restoration of historic metal sculptures, architecture and other objects. Kreilick Conservation, LLC., has performed conservation treatments, assessments, or material analysis at more than 200 sites in the U.S., including more than 30 National Landmarks. Philadelphia-area projects have included Independence Hall, Merchants' Exchange Building, Philadelphia Museum of Art, Founder's Hall at Girard College, Philadelphia City Hall, Laurel Hill Cemetery, Washington Monument, and the Wright Brothers Aeronautical Collection at The Franklin Institute, among many others. What a treat to have Scott in our Liberty Bell Chapter! With such an excellent topic this month, why not bring a colleague or friend along? Hope to see you on the 19th! Respectfully, Jerri Jefferies 2014-2015 Chapter Chairperson

2015 ASM Materials Camp

2014-2015 Sustaining Members

We are accepting applications for our 11th Annual Materials Camp at Drexel University on June 22-26. Each year there is a strong demand for the camp, with between 75 and 100 applicants over the last few years. With between 20 and 25 slots available, it is very competitive. The very best engineering-oriented students in our region are being served by our camp. As a result of their experiences at camp many are pursuing a Materials Engineering career. The program is one of which our Chapter is extremely proud. It really makes a difference in the lives of the students. We depend on the generosity of local companies and individuals to continue providing this priceless learning experience. Please contact Brian Gorney at 586-3545167 or [email protected] to become a sponsor and have your company linked to this wonderful program. We would also like to announce a new Teacher's Camp that will be coordinated jointly between the ASM Liberty Bell Chapter and Temple University in the summer of 2016. This program will provide science and engineering-oriented teachers in the region an opportunity to be taught by certified master teachers from the ASM Headquarters. The purpose of the week-long course is to assist teachers in finding ways to better interact with students and promote science and engineering in their school. More information will be posted in the newsletter as it becomes available.

Delaware Valley Science Fairs Judges Needed Once again this year, ASM chapter members will be involved in judging the Delaware Valley Science Fairs. April 1, 2015 is the judging day for students in grades 8-12. The DVSF is an annual competition for middle and high school students from eastern Pennsylvania, Delaware, and southern New Jersey. In addition to selecting the recipients of ASM prizes for materialsrelated projects, some members have assisted in judging categories such as physics, chemistry, and engineering. Again this year, the award medals will be handed out at the awards ceremony on April 2. But, more judges are always welcome. The judges are all volunteers and come from a variety of technical areas, including industry, education, and research. Although there is not a specific materials category, your materials background qualifies you for a variety of areas. So, in addition to helping the DVSF, you could help the chapter further its educational goals by being a judge. This year's fair will be held at the Greater Philadelphia Expo Center in Oaks, PA. If you are interested in being a judge, you can sign up at http://www.drexel.edu/dvsf. If you need more information about judging, or some encouragement, talk to John Janiszewski ([email protected] or 215.641.8849).

Meeting - Thursday, February 19, 2015

Solar Atmospheres Vacuum Heat Treats Ti Manifold for Orion Spacecraft In today's modern production environment requirements seldom stay the same. In 2015, a prime example is a new third-party accreditation program called MedAccred in the medical industry. This program is going to be the equivalent of the Nadcap program in the aerospace arena. In addition to MedAccred, medical prime contractors are demanding that environmental conditions are controlled, processes validated, and the risk of exposure to foreign object debris (FOD) reduced. Solar Atmospheres has taken preemptive action to develop and build a new area to meet these upcoming requirements. In mid-2014, Solar Atmospheres installed a new area within the existing shop at our 1983 Clearview Road address. The area is approximately 1500 square feet and incorporates temperature and humidity controls, as well as a slight positive pressure environment. These features will minimize water vapor and dust/debris in the heat treating area. One unique feature of the space is the addition of a brand new, state-of-the-art, all-metal hotzone vacuum furnace with an oversized pumping system, ability to isolate the quench sys- Solar Atmospheres climate controlled room. tem during the heat cycle, and all stainless steel chamber. The furnace is capable of maintaining a vacuum level of 5x10-6 torr or lower and has successfully processed the most sensitive materials unshielded without any surface contamination. The furnace is positioned outside of the room, and only the door protrudes through the wall into the climate controlled room. This is a very unusual arrangement in the commercial heat treating industry. Early in 2015, an existing furnace will be modified and updated with state-of-the-art controls and added to this new area as well. Currently two laboratory furnaces also reside within the room bringing the total number of furnaces in the area to four. This new climate controlled room will add significant value to our customers' operations, a core component of Solar's mission statement, by lowering the risk of discoloration and FOD, and by the time-saving elimination of the need to shield parts during heat treating. - Contributed by Lori Atkinson, Solar Atmospheres, Inc.
