Heat treatment in steel, is the process of heat application to steel to change its current condition or characteristics. The amount of heat calculated through the coldness or hotness of the steel being treated. One is sure about the temperatures when they reach the metal. Therefore, the procedure of managing heat may range from very cold to very hot.
In such cases the range of the temperature lies between harmful crispt harmful hot. Heat treatment to steel is vital to allow its mechanical, properties and conditions to reform to enable the iron to be useful during production and its functional life cycle. To make steel you need iron metal. There are some features of iron that we must know and consider so that we can understand the process of heat treatment of steel.
It is essential that when we want to know the ferrite and the treatment of the steel we understand iron. When one wants to machine a metal with ease they must have a situation where at the room temperature it is hard and has good ductility. The ferrite situation exists in specific crystal appearance and will be able to live at low temperatures.
Just like the sugar or the salt, the alloy get formed of excellent glasses, and they are very many of them. A Lattice structure is as a result of the bonded crystal particles that found In iron primarily known as the ferrous. The Same kind of bonding we see in the water is the bonding that is seen in the ferrous compound. It is possible to have water in three ways, and that is gas, liquid and solid. No matter the form into which it exists it is still the water that is known by everyone. Water crystallization is different when people have the various types in which water exists. That now explains why the ferrite is an only condition of the iron metal. During the process of application of heat to iron things start to happen to the glossy section of steel which is subjected to heat. Oxygen around the atmosphere begins to respond with the glistening face of iron to form into Iron Oxide.
When the heating of iron doesn’t stop there are chemical changes that starts happening on the metal and people are able to see a range on the top of the iron. Change of composition and the evolution of the metal are well seen when there is a change in the temperatures especially at very high levels. The stage transforms from ferrite into austenite The crystal composition converts from cubic which is body-centered into the face-centered cubic structure. A sign of the transformation happening is that there is a loss of magnetic property of the ion, that can be witnessed by testing the face of steel by a magnet.
