REDUCE • RELIEF • RESTRUCTURE
Weld Heat Treatment & Metallurgical Heat Treatment
To Reduce, Redistribute and Restructure the residual stresses in the material that have been introduced by welding.
PWHT is performed usually after welding in order to ensure the material strength of a part is retained after welding. PWHT is typically essential to reduce residual stresses, as a method of hardness control, or even to enhance material strength.
TYPICAL STEPS OF HEAT TREATMENT
TYPICAL CYCLE OF PWHT
- Typical cycle for ASTM A 106 Gr. B
- Heating Rate: 200°C/Hour
- Soaking: 600-620°C for 1 Hour
- Cooling: 200°C/Hour
- Improved ductility of the material
- Improved metallurgical structure
- Improved or reduced hardness
- Reduced risk of brittle fracture
- Relaxed thermal stress
- Tempered metal
- Removal of diffusible hydrogen (to prevent hydrogen induced cracking)
METALLURGICAL HEAT TREATMENT
- Solution Hardening
- Quenching and Tempering
