PROCLAD Heat Treatment


Within 24 hours (certain materials such as F22, tool steels and AISI 8630 require immediate tempering to prevent cracking) of normalising or quenching the load shall be tempered, fittings shall be placed in a furnace at an unrestricted temperature. After the furnace has equalized the load shall be tempered at 538°C - 775°C actual time/ temperature to be specified heat treatment procedure followed by cooling in still air to ambient temperature. The optimum tempering temperatures can be determined from the material history, its chemical analysis and the experience and metallurgical knowledge of the heat treatment management to obtain the desired combination of mechanical strength and toughness which can be proven by mechanical testing.
