To produce an endothermic atmosphere for gas carburizing and carbonitriding it is desirable to use straight-flow type endogenerators with a retort inside diameter of 160–200 mm in the center of which are placed 50–70-diameter tubes.
The catalyst must be located in zones of good heating.
To avoid the formation of carbon soot, the outlet from the endogenerator must be cooled intensely.
