Sinter hardening studies of ASTALOY 85 Mo powder with varying copper contents /

Dinçer, Mehmet
In this thesis study, the effect of sinter hardening on mechanical properties of Astaloy 85 Mo (Fe - 0.85% Mo) powder with addition of 0.8% C and varying copper contents (1% Cu, 2% Cu) was examined. Powder mixes were compacted under 600 MPa. After compaction, the samples were sintered at 1120oC under endogas from methane in an industrial sintering furnace and were sinter-hardened with three different cooling rates (0.5oC/sec., 1.5oC/sec., 3oC/sec.). The study revealed that the cooling rate does not make critical changes on the microstructure of copper free samples. Addition of copper increased the hardenability of the samples which resulted formation of higher amount of martensite in the microstructure. The samples containing 2% Cu were nearly 100% martensitic. Also, the study showed that an increase in % Cu decreases the porosity content and increases the attained densities.

Kılıç, Gülten; Ögel, Bilgehan; Durlu, Nuri; Department of Metallurgical and Materials Engineering (2013)
In this study, the effect of sinter-hardening on the mechanical properties of Distaloy DH (Fe-2Cu-1.5Mo) powder with 0.4%, 0.6%, and 0,8% graphite additions, was investigated. Powder samples were pressed under 600 MPa, and sintered at 1120°C under endogas from methane for 20 minutes in an industrial sintering furnace. After sintering the samples were cooled with three different cooling rates (0.5°C/sec,1.5°C/sec, and 3°C/sec). Microstructural characterization of samples were done with optical and electron m...
High temperature corrosion of steels used in petroleum refinery heaters
Sultan, Abdelrahman; Karakaya, İshak; Department of Metallurgical and Materials Engineering (2005)
The oxidation of three different steels used in the construction of petroleum refineryheaters was investigated by using thermogravimetric analysis technique (TGA). C-5,P-11, and P-22 steel samples were tested in two different oxidizing environments; air and CO2+N2+H2O (that simulates the combustion products of natural gas) at two different temperatures; 450oC and 500oC. In air oxidation P-22 had the best oxidation resistance among the three steels at two temperatures. In CO2+N2+H2O environment,C-5 possessed...
Production and characterization of porous titanium alloys
Esen, Ziya; Bor, Şakir; Department of Metallurgical and Materials Engineering (2007)
In the present study, production of titanium and Ti6Al4V alloy foams has been investigated using powder metallurgical “space holder technique” in which magnesium powder were utilized to generate porosities in the range 30 to 90 vol. %. Also, sintering of titanium and Ti-6Al-4V alloy powders in loose and compacted condition at various temperatures (850-1250oC) and compaction pressures (120-1125 MPa), respectively, were investigated to elucidate the structure and mechanical properties of the porous cell walls...
Investigation of the effect of orientation and heat treatment on the stress corrosion cracking susceptibility of 7050 aluminium alloy
Çevik, Gül; Doruk, Mustafa; Department of Metallurgical and Materials Engineering (2004)
In the present work, the effect of variation in specimen orientation and heat treatment on the Stress Corrosion Cracking (SCC) susceptibility of 7050 aluminum alloy was investigated in 3,5% NaCl solution and under freely corroding conditions. For this purpose, Constant Extension Rate Tests (CERT) was performed on precracked Compact Tension (CT) specimens and the Direct Current Potential Drop technique was applied to measure the crack lengths. In addition to crack length versus time curves, the relationship ...
Investigation and development of possible leaching processes for recovery of zinc and lead from çinkur leach residues
Sunkar, Ahmet Semih; Topkaya, Yavuz Ali; Department of Metallurgical and Materials Engineering (2005)
The major aim of this study was to investigate various leaching methods for the recovery of zinc and lead from blended neutral leach residues of Çinkur having a composition of 12.59 % Zn, 15.21 % Pb, 6.45 % Fe, 0.054 % Cd. Initially water leaching tests were performed at various conditions of leaching temperature, reaction time and particle size. The optimized conditions for water leaching were found to be 2 h, 95?C and 250 g/l pulp density with a final pH of 5.9. However, the zinc recovery value of 10.26 %...
