Carbon and Oxygen reduction during vacuum annealing of stainless steel powder
Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
Stainless steel family grades are very famous for their combined corrosion resistance and high mechanical properties. These properties can be improved further by decreasing the content of impurities like carbon and oxygen. The main purpose of this research work is to study the possibility of stainless steel powder decarburization by vacuum annealing. The influence of different process parameters like treatment time, temperature, fraction size and depth of the powder layer on the decarburization process was analyzed.
The investigation results showed that it is possible to achieve extra low values of carbon and oxygen in steel powder by processing it with optimum process parameters.
