NITRIDING PROCESS:

Nitriding and Nitro carburising of steel parts give unique improvements in wear and corrosion resistance. These improvements can be understood when examining the surface microstructure and hardness after treatment

NITRIDING FACILITY AT SSCT

1. Control over the depth of the diffusion zone independent of the depth of the white layer

2. Elimination of corner effects & nitride network

3. Control over surface hardness & distortion

4. Control on surface porosity

5. Control over type of nitrides in the white layer

6. High degree of case depth & hardness uniformity

7. With post oxidation capability

BENEFICAL PROPERTIES IMPARTED BY NITRIDING:

  • High surface hardness and wear resistance
  • Anti galling properties
  • Increased high temperature hardness
