OMZ Produces 420 ingot for VVER-TOI Reactor (US)

Category : Entreprises

OMZ special Steels

Russian company, OMZ Special Steels has produced a 420-tonne  Ingot steel, which will be used to make a prototype reactor pressure vessel shell for Atomenergoproekt’s next generation VVER-TOI reactor. “This is the first time an ingot of such size will be used in production of a reactor shell,” OMZ said in a statement. The previous weight record was 360 tonnes. The reactor vessel of the VVER reactor is made up of several forged shells welded to each other. OMZ said that the production of the experimental active zone shell for the 1255 MW reactor should be completed by June 2014. It will be made from 15X2HMFA steel. The ingot, which was cast in December 2013, was delivered to the AKK-12000 forging plant for further works, OMZ said. In another first, the ingot was transported to the forging plant at a temperature of 500°C, using a specially developed thermos container and motorized transport machines. The research and development work on this project was carried out in cooperation with OMZ-Izhora, Research and Production Association CNIITMASH and Central Research Institute of Structural Materials Prometey. The giant ingot becomes the second 420 tonne ingot in Izhora’s metallurgy history. The first was cast at Izhorskiye Zavody in 1988. (Credit Photo @ OMZ Special Steels)

MIT explores Steel embrittlement by Hydrogen (US)

Category : Recherche & Développement

MIT Hydrogen Steel 2015

This scanning electron micrograph shows a sample of metal that fractured due to hydrogen embrittlement. The colored patches show data acquired by electron backscatter diffraction, revealing the grain structure surrounding selected cracks. Such images help show the correlation between microstructure and hydrogen embrittlement, and are used to identify the features that lead to hydrogen-assisted fracture. (Credit Photo @ MIT)

 

How to prevent metal embrittlement

Analysis shows certain crystal boundaries can enhance, or reduce, hydrogen’s damaging effects.

February 5, 2015 –  When a metal tube lines an oil well thousands of feet below the surface of the ocean, that metal had better be solid and reliable. Unfortunately, the environment in such deep wells is often rich in hydrogen, a gas that can penetrate high-tech alloys and make them brittle — making fractures and leaks more likely. Now researchers at MIT have figured out exactly which characteristics of a metal structure tend to foster this embrittlement in the presence of hydrogen. More significantly, they have also determined that simple changes in processing can modify the structure in a way that may greatly reduce the chances of damage, extending Continue Reading

Specifically, they used 0.8 percent carbon, 15 percent manganese, 10 percent aluminum, and 5 percent nickel into steel, and processed the alloy at 900°C, which is generally used for heat treatments. After that, they decreased the size of the compound to evenly diffuse it into a larger amount of steel.  On photo : Annealed microstructure of high-specific-strength steel (HSSS).

A trio of researchers with South Korea’s Graduate Institute of Ferrous Technology has found a way to create a new low-density steel that is stronger, lighter and more flexible than the conventional steel that is used in so many manufacturing applications. In their paper published in the journal Nature, the team describes the process they used and their hopes that it might replace conventional steel in some applications sometime in the near future.

Titanium alloys could help the aircraft industry reduce weight, fuel consumption and emissions without compromising performance. EU-funded scientists are developing technology to exploit some of the most promising materials. Novel materials for aircraft engines © Thinkstock Gamma titanium aluminides (gamma-TiAl) have long been recognised by the aerospace industry as promising materials due to their low density and high strength at elevated temperatures. However, application has been limited by difficulties in machining due to brittleness. Achievement of a fine-grained microstructure of ingots can decrease flow stresses and facilitate conversion to small-size forging stocks. Scientists are developing Continue Reading

Avio produces jet engine TiAl turbine blades using high power Electron Beam Melting (US)

Category : Recherche & Développement

Tial GE additive manufacturing

Avio 3D-printed LPT blades for the LEAP, GEnx, GE90 and GE9X jet engines.

Engineers at the Italian aerospace company Avio have developed a breakthrough process for 3D printing light-weight metal blades for jet engine turbines. The method builds the blades from a titanium powder fused with a beam of electrons accelerated by an electron gun several times more powerful than lasers currently used for printing metal parts. The tool allows Avio, which is part of GE Aviation, to build blades from layers of Continue Reading

Titanium high putity electrobeam

China as the world’s primary product of titanium sponge titanium, capacity of the largest countries, 2013 production of about 120000 tons, a serious surplus production capacity, market price of 47000 yuan per ton; at the same time in the field of high pure titanium completely blank. While hypoxia ultra pure titanium has higher added value, the market price of up to 1000000 yuan per ton. At present, three enterprises all over the world only America, Japan can produce ultra high pure titanium, as a high-end metal materials, American strictly limit the export of China.
