SPECIAL STAINLESS STEEL FOR SPECIAL PURPOSES - VACUUM OXYGEN DECARBURIZATON (VOD) STEEL
Find out the benefits of special steels made according to VOD process from a classically cast ingot in comparison with continuous casting:
- The possibility for a production of larger forging blocks, also from a 40 ton ingot;
- Higher rate of hot forming, with better mechanical properties, finer grain and a homogeneous microstructure throughout the whole product section;
- Products made from these steels have a longer life period under extreme operation conditions of final product, in particular due to a higher stability of material. You will enjoy lower cost of material and, what is the most important: satisfied customers!
- Austenitic, martensitic, ferritic, precipitation hardening and Duplex steels, which are made by VOD method at SIJ Metal Ravne, can be made in a broad dimensional range depending on their shape:
o Round bars from Ø 6 - 700 mm,
o Square bars from 14 – 650 mm,
o Flat bars from 40 x 8 mm do 500 x 400 mm,
- We guarantee flexibility in the size of your order.
What you should also know:
- Steels are made in accordance with ASTM, GE NE, Nace, AMS, DIN EN standards.
- We offer a large variety of heat treatments: quenching, solution annealing, precipitation hardening, hardening, tempering, soft annealing, no heat treatment.
- Possible surface treatment: peeled, ground, milled or drawn surface.
- A complete range of VOD steels is available also in ESR version.
- Find out the properties of SINOXX 4542, a VOD steel: With the right heat treatment, applications are possible even down to -196˚ C where high toughness and corossion resistance under extreme conditions of operation play a significant role.
- Appllications: distribution, sucker rods in water and oil pumps, petrochemical fittings, valves and valve stems, pump shafting in refineries, frack blocks, aerator shafts (from oil and gas, power generation, petrochemical industry, water filtration etc).
