When trying to determine a material’s response
to heat treatment, it is important to understand the form, prior treatments,
chemical composition, grain size, hardenability and perhaps even the mechanical
properties from which the parts were manufactured. The certification sheet for
the material in question supplies such information.
The January 2017 issue of Industrial Heating features our cover story on a horizontal quench system, the importance of materials science in failure analysis, a new quarterly column, Academic Pulse, and much more.
