Three methods of production and processing of 316L stainless steel angle

At this stage, the key to the production and processing of 316L stainless steel angle is divided into three kinds of processes: one-step method, two-step method and three-step method. Each of the three methods has its own advantages and disadvantages.

One-step method

Smelter with a heating furnace for daily tasks. Smelting scrap steel, chromium-nickel based alloy and further refining into 316L stainless steel angle with heating furnace has been eliminated. But along with the use of low-phosphorus steel in production, the new one-step production and processing process will again step into the dawn. Jiu Steel selected the new one-step production process to produce 400 series steel grades.

Two-step process

The heating furnace with VOD furnace or AOD furnace, VOD furnace choose vacuum pump blowing oxygen carburizing, AOD furnace choose argon or N2 dilution liquid vapor carburizing. At this stage, the heating furnace + VOD furnace is widely used in small and medium-sized multi-species compatible steelmaking plant; heating furnace + AOD is widely used in large and medium-sized 316L stainless steel angle technology professional processing plant. In China’s large and medium-sized 316L stainless steel angle production company, 200 series products and 300 series products of 316L stainless steel angle production to two-step method as the key production process, is the more common use of 316L stainless steel angle production method at this stage.

Three step method

In the two-step method basically upgrade the deep carburizing machinery and equipment, the production of the whole process of application of heating furnace, VOD furnace and other special type furnace, production efficiency and cost costs than the two-step method has more advantages. In addition, the product quality is high, the available products cover a wide range, and the selection of raw materials is convenient.
