When we do the soaks at 1725 it is to billets measuring 3" x 3" x 5". I have also done it to 2" round bars.

Naturally there are a lot of thermal cycles and reduction by forging after the soaks.

A couple of years ago I reduced the temperature down to 1550 and noticed no difference in the steel when comparing the 1550 soak and the 1725 soak.

This is our method:
the billet goes in the Paragon at room temp. The paragon is set to heat up to 1550 in 2 hours.
Once the billet is up to temp it is held at temp for 2 hours, then shut the Paragon down and let it cool slowly to room temp.

Thanks Chris, and I'd sure like to hear what Kevin has to add as well.

Any chance of that, Ed?
