Chemical composition and heat treatment of duplex stainless steel

Duplex stainless steels require good overall mechanical properties. These properties are achieved by the selection of steel with the appropriate composition and by heat treatment by quenching and high temperature tempering. In the quenched and tempered state, the dual-phase steel has low carbon content, high plasticity and toughness, but low strength; the high carbon content is […]

Test method and test error of Brinell and Vivtorinox hardness for stainless steel plate and other metals

Brinell test was designed by Swedish researchers in early twentieth Century. As shown in Fig. 1 (a), the test involves pressing the hardened steel ball indenter into the surface of the sample using standard load. Select the diameter / load ratio to provide impressions of acceptable diameter. The diameter of the ball can be 10,5 […]

Properties and classification of duplex stainless steel

The biphase in the name of the duplex stainless steel is mainly derived from the microstructure of the alloy. The duplex stainless steel usually contains about 50/50 austenite and delta ferrite phase mixture. Compared to austenitic stainless steel (for example, 304 or 316 stainless steel), duplex stainless steel has better corrosion resistance, especially chloride stress corrosion and […]

Attention to precipitation or aging hardening of stainless steel plates

Several methods can be used to increase the strength of stainless steel plates, which are alloying, quenching, working hardening, and a very common form of heat treatment, namely, precipitation or aging hardening. The so-called age hardening is in fact dependent on the formation of precipitates. In order to achieve the best combination of mechanical properties, the […]

What is the reaction of stainless steel plates and hydrogen

Hydrogen corrosion may occur in ammonia synthesis, hydrogen desulfurization and hydrogenation and petroleum refining units. Carbon steel is not suitable for high pressure hydrogen installations at temperatures above 232 C. Hydrogen can spread into the stainless steel plate and form methane at the grain boundary or in the pearlite zone with the iron carbide. Methane can not […]

Several processes of pickling and passivation on the surface of stainless steel plate

When the surface of the stainless steel plate is not annealed (for example, the surface after welding), drilling mud residue, rust-proof film, or ferrite impregnated with stainless steel after the molding process, the corrosion resistance of the stainless steel material will be directly affected. At this point you need to use acidic oil cleaning agent to do […]
