A333-6 low temperature steel pipe welding

A333-6 steel is a low-temperature steel. The minimum temperature of 70 ° C. Usually normalized or normalized and tempered state supplier.

A333-6 steel carbon content is lower, so hardened the tendency and cold cracking tendency are relatively small. Material toughness and ductility is better, generally difficult to produce hardening and cracks, good weldability, optional W707Ni electrode with El the imports of wire TGS 1N, using argon ITU welding. To ensure good toughness of welded joints.

Preheat

When the ambient temperature is below 5 ° C required weldment preheating. Preheat temperature of 100-150 oC: Preheat the scope of welds on each side of 100 mm; heating oxyacetylene flame (neutral flame) temperature measuring pen measuring the temperature at 50 ~ 100 mm from the center of the weld. The measurement points uniformly distributed, in order to better control the temperature.



Alloy steel specification, Standard and identification

Alloy Steel pipe contains substantial quantities of elements other than carbon such as nickel, chromium, silicon, manganese, tungsten, molybdenum, vanadium and limited amounts of other commonly accepted elements such as manganese, sulfur, silicon, and phosphorous.

Q&A

Our team of experienced sales specialists proudly partners with gas and chemical processors, power generation plants, oil refineries, and related industries to offer piping components and value-added services.

The most important and desired changes in alloy steel are:

Alloy steels are made by combining carbon steel with one or several alloying elements, such as manganese, silicon, nickel, titanium, copper, chromium and aluminum. These metals are added to produce specific properties that are not found in regular carbon steel. The elements are added in varying proportions (or combinations) making the material take on different aspects such as increased hardness, increased corrosion resistance, increased strength, improved formability (ductility); the weldability can also change.

  • Increased hardenability.
  • Increased corrosion resistance.
  • Retention of hardness and strength.

Nearly all alloy steels require heat treatment in order to bring out their best properties.

Alloying Elements & Their Effects

  • Chromium – Adds hardness. Increased toughness and wear resistance.
  • Cobalt – Used in making cutting tools; improved Hot Hardness (or Red Hardness).
  • Manganese – Increases surface hardness. Improves resistance to strain, hammering & shocks.
  • Molybdenum – Increases strength. Improves resistance to shock and heat.
  • Nickel – Increases strength & toughness. Improves corrosion resistance.
  • Tungsten – Adds hardness and improves grain structure. Provides improved heat resistance.
  • Vanadium – Increases strength, toughness and shock resistance. Improved corrosion resistance.
  • Chromium-Vanadium – Greatly improved tensile strength. It is hard but easy to bend and cut.
