Heat processing of low alloyed steels with cooling in an air flux of varying velocity

  • 1 Frantsevich Institute for Problems of Materials Science, Ukraine


Using an originally developed laboratory controlled air cooling automatic device regimes of controlled fasted normalization of low and middle carbon steel were studied. Significant improving of the steel structure was shown. The proposed technologies of controlled air cooling could be useful for small metal products of middle carbon steels heat treatment as an advanced normalization process.
