Comparative Sliding Wear Studies Among Flame Hardening and Induction Hardening Processes on 316l Stainless Steel

Authors(2) :-B. Sagar, Dr. Ram Subbaiah

This task examines on acceptance induction and flame hardening processes so as to enhance the wear conduct of the material. The hardness of the material is expanded up to 200% by this procedure. Induction hardening process were done to 3 unique examples - a 1 minute, 2 minutes, and 3 minutes and named as IH1, IH2, and IH3 separately. Flame hardening process were completed to 3 distinct examples – 5 minutes, 10 minutes and 15 minutes and named as FH1, FH2, and FH3. The examples are to be amplified by metallographic test, for example, scanning electron microscope. The untreated example is utilized to contrast and the treated example. The best example is picked which decides the life of material and enhances the better wear protection. The hardness of untreated material and treated material were analyzed.
