Steel treated with heat in a method of heat treatment aimed at improving the requirements of the metal and making it have different features. The amount of heat calculated through the coldness or hotness of the steel being treated. When you feel the metal the temperatures are either hot or cold. 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. Process of using heat to treat steel is very much important as it allows steel to change its original conditions so that there is usefulness in the final product. Iron is the most significant component of the steel. 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. It is easy to machine a metal that have the properties required in the process as having normal temperatures and also good ductility like the iron metal. In Term of the room temperature the ferrite case can only exist as specific crystals.
Every iron is made up of very many crystal clear particles that resemble the salt of the sugar grains. When the grains are joined together they form a structure called lattice structure. The Same kind of bonding we see in the water is the bonding that is seen in the ferrous compound. Water is available in three forms namely liquid, vapor, and ice. Any of the conditions or phases is still water. In the different states that water can be found the crystal composition is different. The example of water points out clearly between the iron and ferrite. Heat causes a lot of change to steel during the time for heat application. 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. Before they steel hits the target temperature already there is a change in structure and the period of the metal. At high heat we have austenite instead of ferrite. What was previously composed of crystals that are cubic in shape now changes to another structure. When the process is the magnetism that is associated with iron is nowhere to be found, and there is a complete change of the metal.
