  • Patent number: 10941462
    Abstract: An on-line intelligent control method for the cooling characteristics of a quenching liquid in heat treatment production includes the steps of: step 1: subjecting a workpiece to thermal insulation; step 2: measuring the cooling characteristics and the heat transfer coefficient of a quenching liquid followed by correction; step 3: starting cooling; step 4: then changing the internal circulation rate; and step 5: removing the workpiece. This scheme can effectively avoid the problem that the cooling of a workpiece in industrial production deviates from the ideal cooling characteristics of a quenching liquid obtained in a laboratory.

    Abstract: A C+N austenitic stainless steel with high mechanical strength and excellent corrosion resistance and a fabrication method thereof are provided. The C+N austenitic stainless steel consists of: 8 to 12 wt. % manganese; 15 to 20 wt. % chromium; 2 wt. % or less nickel; 4 wt. % or less tungsten; 2 wt. % or less molybdenum; 0.6 to 1.0 wt. % of total C+N content; a balance of iron; and unavoidable impurities. The austenitic stainless steel fabricated provides mechanical properties of a tensile strength of 850 MPa or higher and an uniform elongation of 45% or higher, obtained through controlling the contents of the interstitial elements and those of the substitutional elements. The alloy also provides corrosion resistance and a biocompatibility due to the minimized content of nickel which causes allergic reaction to the human body. Therefore, the C+N austenitic stainless steel is applicable in the fabrication of a variety of functional components and structural fields.
