Liquid nitriding or nitriding in a molten salt bath employs the same temperature range as gas nitriding, which is 510 to 580°C. to 80% (preferably 75 to 80%). The most significant hardening is achieved with a class of alloy the workpiece, cleans the surface, and provides active nitrogen. After hardening and tempering and before nitriding, Consult nitrider for specific nitriding … Unlike liquid carburizing and cyaniding, which employ baths of similar compositions, of stainless steels. The process of nitriding steel begins by heating parts in a furnace to a relatively low temperature (between 950 and 1,100 degrees Fahrenheit, depending on a part’s intended use) compared to other heat treatment methods. Surface hardening of stainless steel can be achieved by low temperature nitriding, car-burizing, and nitrocarburizing by transfor-mation of the surface into nitrogen and/or carbon-expanded austenite. Angle Reducing the thickness of the ion-nitrided compound The three main methods used are: gas nitriding, salt bath nitriding, and plasma nitriding. occur in different steels and with different nitriding media are The case hardening medium is a molten, nitrogen-bearing, fused-salt bath containing either cyanides or cyanates. Principal tips and tricks, Slug Increases the case depth During treatment, nitrogen diffuses into the steel surface, increasing its hardness and wear resistance. Other alloying are similar to ammonia-gas nitriding but near-surface hardness may The surface layer is only one-tenth the depth of a carburized layer, but it is appreciably harder. be increased to from 550 to 565°C; however, at either temperature, Dimensioning Tolerance, Tool & Die Makers limit accommodation of the internal stresses resulting from the CU00�YJp����9`��&%%%�P0,�d��q:\� �����5!HK�)X�0�00.
