Mastering heat treatment techniques – ensuring superior performance in piping components
In the journey of several decades, Haihao Group has emerged as a leading expert in various heat treatment methods, providing customers with materials that meet stringent performance requirements. A key aspect of our production process involves different cooling methods during heat treatment, ensuring the desired properties in our piping components.
Widely Applied Quenching Classification:
Single Liquid Quenching:
Process: Submerging austenitic workpieces into a quenching medium, cooling them continuously until reaching room temperature.
Common Quenching Media: Water, brine, caustic soda solution, oil, and specially formulated quenching agents.
Suitability: Primarily suitable for simple-shaped components made of carbon steel. Offers simplicity and facilitates mechanization.
Dual Liquid Quenching:
Process: Workpieces are first immersed in a highly efficient cooling medium, then swiftly transferred to a less effective cooling medium (e.g., water followed by oil or water followed by air).
Advantages: Reduces deformation and cracking tendencies, though it requires careful control and has limitations in application.
Martensitic Grade Quenching:
Process: Workpieces are immersed in a liquid medium (salt or alkali bath) slightly higher or lower than the martensite point, held for a specified time, and then air-cooled.
Benefits: Effectively reduces phase transformation stress and thermal stress, suitable for alloy and high-alloy steel components.
Bainitic Isothermal Quenching:
Process: Rapidly cooling steel to below Ms to obtain 10%–20% martensite, followed by isothermal holding in the bainite transformation temperature range.
Application: Especially useful for alloy tool steel components, minimizing the risk of first-stage temper brittleness and reducing the tendency for residual austenite-related deformation and cracking.
Process: Rapid cooling to below Ms to obtain martensite, followed by isothermal holding in the lower bainite temperature range.
Usage: Applied to alloy tool steel components, effectively avoiding first-stage temper brittleness and reducing the risk of residual austenite-related deformation and cracking.
