Carbon is the main element responsible for the different physical and metallurgical characteristics of an alloy. When the carbon content is more, the alloy is harder. It is made stronger too with the different heat treatments which are used in metallurgical industry. When the alloy pipe is treated at such high temperatures, the melting point of the alloy is lowered which makes it better for use in different manufacturing units.

However, the product made is comparatively less durable than other metals and its weldability property also gets reduced. On the other side, this lack increases its hardenability. Hardenability is more to your advantage for the reason that the exterior has good quality wear characteristics and keeps the core sturdy.

The different heat treatment processes used to change the distinctive chemical and physical features of steel to create some particular alloy pipe of your need. Annealing, quenching, and tempering are the commonly used methods to do it.

  • Annealing is done to soften the metal by heating the steel at extremely high temperature, heating above the austenite temperature (or UC) until the composition is homogeneous.
  • When you need to strengthen the iron-based alloy more, Tempering is used. ┬áThis is done post-hardening. When the metal is heated at a moderately lower temperature than hardening, the alloy loses surplus hardness. Further tempering will lead to a more pliable and fracture-resistant steel.
  • Quenching is the process where the highly heated work piece is cooled rapidly with the help of water or oil, to attain some particular degrees of properties like hardness, brittleness, weldability, etc. This procedure decreases the crystalline attributes and thus adds to the hardiness of alloys. Moreover it gives you a strong but brittle marten site structure.

Carbon alloy AISI 4140 can be reinforced to between 18 and 22 Rockwell. This has the

  • yield power of 417.1 MPa,
  • an elongation constant of 25.7 percent, and
  • Tensile strength of 644 MPa.

Carbon alloy 4140 is distinguished especially because of its toughness, incredible torsional strength, and remarkable fatigue strength. AISI 4140 lasts longer than many other metals and its deteriorating rate is also very low.

The types of carbon alloy can be distinctively classified into mild carbon steel, low carbon steel and high carbon steel. Among these three, mild carbon steel is the most widespread form of steel. It is low cost and has fitting qualities for manifold uses. The stiffness of mild carbon steel can be improved by carburizing. With carburizing, carbon content on the direct surface is added. Low carbon steel has lower carbon content and is easier to handle therefore. Medium carbon alloy, which is most extensively used in various fields including large projects and for forging and automotive components, have a balanced mix of ductility, strength, and has great wear opposition. Finally, hard carbon alloy steel is mostly used for springs and high-strength wires.

Alloy pipe A53 is welded or seamless pipe and alloy pipe A106 is seamless GR B or Gr C with a 30% highest carbon content. An alloy pipe can be applied for use in rolls, machines parts, and pipe for carrying liquid or gases.
