I have hesitated to anneal for several years. Reading up on the process, it seemed that going by the color of the brass at heating was very subjective. I never hesitated to buy your system when I read about the Tempilaq liquid. The brass handling setup is quick and easy. Many Kudos for an accurate and reasonably priced system.

I've received, and used the annealing kit I recently purchased after viewing your YouTube instructional. Things went so well, and precisely as described, that I just wanted to say thanks, both for the good design of your equipment, but also, for it's ease of use ... I followed your instructions, using your equipment, and indeed, the neck shoulder Tempilaq turned the appropriate color on queue, and the lower temp Tempilaq, painted on the lower body of test brass, did not turn from it's original color, indicating the annealing was localized to the right area of the brass ... I was worried this would be a difficult and imprecise process, and thanks to the design of your equipment, I found it was simple and straightforward. I know I can get consistent results with your process ...

I have been using your system with enthusiasm and success for about one year. I recall the trepidation with which I first approached annealing, which seemed to require either expensive hardware or excessive guesswork. I can attest that your system is not expensive, and it most certainly is not cheap. It is cost effective, easy to use, and safely anneals brass even in the hands of someone new to the activity. Thank you for an excellent product.

Q. A customer wrote! "I am considering your system for annealing case necks. You recommend 750 degrees for annealing, other vendors and web sites recommend 650 degrees. Can you elaborate on the correct/best temperature. I don't want to ruin a bunch of expensive cases."
-Robert G.

A. The research I have done with cartridge brass manufacturers as well as metallurgists recommend a minimum of 700°F and a maximum of 800°F on the case neck. This is why we use 750°F Tempilaq, as it is right in the middle of the proper range. Tempilaq is guaranteed accurate to plus or minus one percent; this is a total spread of just 15°F. I have annealed many thousands of cases at this temperature and have had excellent results.

Rifle Brass Annealing Equipment

When you’re ready to start annealing the necks of your cartridge brass cases, you want a machine that is efficient, accurate & reasonable. No product fits that description better than our Anneal-Rite brass annealing system. It anneals cartridge brass necks at precisely the proper temperature, it is sturdy & affordable.

Why Anneal Brass Cartridges Case Necks?

As a reloader you may have considered brass neck annealing but were hesitant. Guessing brass temperature by color is obviously inaccurate. Without annealing, brass usually fails after 5 to 7 firings. A bench rest shooter set a 5 shot group record at 600 yards of .861. He anneals after every firing, this was the 58th time he fired this brass. It’s long been recognized proper annealing increases accuracy and lengthens case life. The Anneal-Rite guarantees perfect results every time, annealing 500 to 600 cases per hour. This is twice as fast as the induction unit and at a fraction of the cost.

Proper Brass Annealing Technique

Correct cartridge case neck annealing can be incredibly beneficial, increasing the life of your brass and tightening your groups. However, if annealing isn’t done properly, not only are these benefits nullified, but the resulting brass can be dangerous.

If the case head is accidentally annealed it can blow out when fired wrecking the firearm and causing injury. The key to proper annealing is getting the precise temperature evenly distributed in the case neck. This must be done without increasing the temperature in the case head or base above 481° F. as brass begins to anneal at 482°. Research we have done with cartridge brass manufacturers and metallurgists dictates the proper neck annealing temperature is between 700 to 800° F. Sadly, most competitive annealing machines don’t guarantee the accuracy, relying on guesswork, approximation, or mailing off samples of your brass for analysis.

Our innovative annealing machine uses Tempilaq to indicate the precise temperature at 750°F. and it is guaranteed to be accurate to plus or minus one percent, eliminating guesswork and increasing your results without the danger.

Other Brass Cartridge Annealing Methods

In the past information on cartridge brass neck annealing was limited and the methods problematic. Originally the method was to stand cases in a shallow pan of water, heating the neck of each case one at a time with a torch until it emitted a low red glow then tip it over into the water. This method is messy, slow and just a wild guess at temperature. Water quenching brass makes no metallurgical change at all, it does no react like heat treating steel. The idea of water quenching brass was to stop the annealing process, which stops anyway when brass is removed from the heat source.

This aforementioned method is haphazard, if the temperature is too low ineffective annealing results, too hot and the brass can be ruined with the neck to shoulder junction too soft collapsing when resized. Other methods involve dipping the case mouths in molten lead, or rotating the cases by hand in a flame; these arcane annealing methods are problematic, best to do the job correctly.

There are a few carousel-style annealing machines for rifle brass, as well as other designs on the market. While these tend to be a better solution than previous methods mentioned, they're also very expensive and still have the same problem with measuring the exact temperature needed.

About Enterprise Services & Anneal-Rite

At Enterprise Services, we’ve believed in annealing our own brass for years, but were never quite satisfied with the processes available. Then, about ten years ago, it came time to anneal a large batch of brass cases.

We had about a thousand rifle cases, so we started a search for a brass annealing machine to help speed up the process. We soon discovered that the motor-driven semi-automatic annealers were quite expensive, upwards of 500 dollars. Right now, there is even a machine on the market for over $1,400.00. In our opinion, that price is way too much for just one step in the reloading process. In addition, there wasn’t a mechanism in place for accuracy in verifying the temperature.

Our founders took their background in tool and die design and got to work on a better solution. We continued to perfect those initial designs, and the Anneal-Rite brass annealing machine is the result.

Anneal-Right Brass Annealing Machine

When you are seriously considering a brass annealing machine, we’ve got the perfect solution for you. The Anneal-Rite system is easy, affordable and American-made.

Don’t pay more and receive much less, with Anneal-Rite you’ll have exact temperature control, efficient production of annealing up to 600 cases per hour. Our machine uses a special temperature indicating fluid called Tempilaq indicating when your brass has reached the perfect annealing temperature of 750°F.

The Anneal-Rite rotates cases vertically between two propane torch flames (torches optionally available). Rotation is safely performed by hand with a wooden knob, ensuring even heat distribution and unparalleled control. Eleven standard Cartridge Case Holders are available which accommodate hundreds of different cases from .40 S&W pistol to .50 BMG.
