Steel in Translation | Year: 2013
The structure formation in 80K steel is studied after austenitization and subsequent cooling at ∼15°C/s for 1-20 s, with final cooling in water. Energy-saving sorbitization of high-carbon wire rod is introduced in the 150 mill at OAO BMZ-UKKh BMK. Such sorbitization reduces the energy consumption, without loss of productivity or product quality. © 2013 Allerton Press, Inc.
