ÇEMTAŞ Steel Plant produces alloy steels used principally by the automotive industry. Demands of customers for cleaner steel with “fewer, smaller and homogenously distributed inclusions” are getting tighter with time. The tight demands of the customers are checked by ultrasonic testing and faulty regions are cut off and scrapped which results in production losses in steel plants. Decreasing production losses due to scrapping by producing cleaner steels is therefore a major concern. The objective of this study is to investigate factors affecting the cleanliness of the steels produced by ÇEMTAŞ. With this objective, the steelmaking practice used was thoroughly investigated and the possible origins of inclusions in the final product was tried to be found. Based on the findings, process parameters like temperature, time, quantities of additives to steel, intensity of stirring etc. were varied with the objective of determining the optimum production practice. .

Hydrogen control at Çemtaş steel plant /
Suna, Hazal; Sevinç, Naci; Department of Metallurgical and Materials Engineering (2015)
ÇEMTAŞ Steel Plant produces alloy steels used principally by the automotive industry. For this industry, cleanliness of steel is a crucial criterion. In order to satisfy the demands of customers for cleaner steels and decrease the production losses a master thesis named “Inclusion control at ÇEMTAŞ Steel Plant” was started and completed. According to the results obtained in this study, it was concluded that inclusions are not the only cause of defects in the final product and that hydrogen is another import...
Effect of bottom stirring on basic oxygen steelmaking
Bilgiç, Çağrı Doğan; Sevinç, Naci; Department of Metallurgical and Materials Engineering (2016)
ERDEMİR Steel Plant produces wide range of alloy steel for various industries. Main demand of industries for steel is high quality end product with lower prices. One of the criterion affecting not only the steel cleanliness and also price of the product is bottom stirring in basic oxygen steelmaking. The objective of this study is to investigate effects of bottom stirring on basic oxygen steelmaking. With this objective, process parameters, analysis of produced heats were investigated to determine effects o...
Delamination of layered materials under impact loading
Dinç, Dinçer; Kalkanlı, Ali; Department of Metallurgical and Materials Engineering (2003)
In this study, a cold worked tool steel and a low carbon steel ( St 37 ), which were joined by brazing, were subjected to impact and shear loading. The end product is used as paper cutting blades in the industry. Effects of different brazing filler metals on the delamination of the blades under impact loading and on the impact toughness of the blades were studied. The target is to achieve higher impact toughness values without delamination. Impact toughness of the steels, joined by Cu, CuNi and BNi brazing ...
Effect of chromium on the oxidation of steels used in the construction of petroleum refinery heaters
Sultan, Abdelrahman Saleh; Karakaya, İshak; Department of Metallurgical and Materials Engineering (2013)
Low chromium steels used in the construction of petroleum refinery heaters work in flue gas environments containing water vapor. On the other hand, the higher oxidation rates of chromium containing steels in moist atmospheres have been reported. P-5, P-22, P-11(containing 5, 2.25 and 1.25 %Cr) and C-5 steels, used in petroleum refinery construction, were subjected to isothermal oxidation tests. These steels were tested in two different environments; air and flue gas of natural gas combustion -CO2+2H2O+7.52N...
Investigation of mechanical property changes after MIG welding of (7XXX) series aluminum alloys
Okay, Sena; Ögel, Bilgehan; Batıgün, Caner; Department of Metallurgical and Materials Engineering (2016)
There is an increasing demand for aluminum alloys not only in aerospace industry but also in automotive industry due to its low density. Welding is the most effective and commonly used joining technique in those industries, therefore, aluminum welding plays an important role. 7039 aluminum alloy, is a high strength alloy and it is suitable for armor applications. Like other aluminum alloys, after MIG welding, remarkable decrease in strength is observed and therefore applications are restricted. The aim of t...
