QUICK FAQS FOR 19CN5 STEEL
What is the oxygen content requirement of 19CN5 steel?
The oxygen content in steel is an important factor affecting the fatigue life. According to the data, when the oxygen content is reduced from 25 ppm to 11 ppm, the contact fatigue strength can be increased by 4 times.
For 19CN5 steel, production processes such as refining and slagging, VD degassing, argon blowing and soft stirring are required to ensure that the oxygen content of 19CN5 steel is <20ppm, and the best below 15pppm.
What is the hydrogen content requirement of 19CN5 steel?
Hydrogen is an important root cause of white spots, and it is extremely important to strictly control the hydrogen content in steel.For 19CN5 steel, it is necessary to ensure sufficient VD vacuum degree and vacuum time, and control the hydrogen content below 2ppm.
Why does 19CN5 steel have a narrow hardenability band requirement？
The 19CN5 gear steel with narrow hardenability band has small deformation after heat treatment, small gear grinding amount and high occlusion accuracy.The narrower the width of the hardenability belt, the smaller the dispersion, the more conducive to the processing of gears and the improvement of their occlusal accuracy.
The hardenability requirements for 19CN5 steel are as follows
Why does 19CN5 steel have grain size requirements?
The austenite grains are too coarse, which will increase the deformation cracking tendency of the steel and reduce the toughness. The fine and uniform austenite grains are of great significance to stabilize the end hardenability of the steel, reduce the deformation of the gear after heat treatment, and improve the brittle fracture resistance of the carburized steel.
For 19CN5 Steel,grain size requirements are generally 5-8, preferably 7-8.
What are the non-metallic inclusion requirements for 19CN5 steel?
Non-metallic inclusions not only affect the purity of 19CN5 steel, but also further affect its properties, such as reducing ductility and toughness.
For 19CN5 Gear steel, the non-metallic inclusions must meet the following requirements
|Non-metallic Inclusions |
|Max 2.0||Max 2.0||Max 2.0||Max 2.0||Max 2.0||Max 1.5||Max 2.0||Max 1.5 |
What are the band structure requirements of 19CN5 steel?
If the structure uniformity of 19CN5 is poor and there is a serious band structure, it will lead to unsatisfactory structure and uneven hardness after carburizing or carbonitriding heat treatment.
For 19CN5 steel,the band structure must be below 2.0 level.
