Why use 17-4 PH stainless bars?
From small pin sizes to large airplanes or ships, stainless steel is one of the main metals used in manufacturing these things in the world. The only reason to use stainless steel is that it has all the main advantages of making airplanes, ships, and even small pins. In addition, stainless steel is a recyclable material, so the manufacturing industry reuses stainless steel in the manufacturing process. The required strength and toughness can be adjusted within the temperature range during the heat treatment. 17-4 pH stainless steel can be used in a variety of industries, including pump shafts, oil circuits, mechanical seals, and the aerospace industry. The composition of this alloy is carbon, chromium, Colombian tantalum, copper, manganese, nickel, phosphorus, silicon, and sulfur.
Steel 17-4 PH is the precipitation of hardening martensitic stainless steel with chromium, nickel, and copper. A combination of high strength and corrosion resistance and exceptional toughness for the base metal and weld is found in the stainless steel 17-4 pH. It has excellent corrosion resistance to many chemical industries, papermaking, and food industries, and the corrosion resistance of this metal is better than most of the hardened stainless steel. These properties enable the designers to improve the reliability of their products, simplify manufacturing and often reduce reliability. This metal also maintains high strength at approximately 600°F (316°C). 17-4 pH stainless steel has good resistance to stress corrosion cracking at a higher temperature. We at Mavin stainless steel produces top-notch quality stainless steel, and are one of the top stainless steel manufacturers in India.
Type 17-4pH Stainless Steel, also known as Alloy 630, is the most widely used of all the precipitation-hardened steels. Compared with the other alloys, it requires simple heat treatment to obtain a wide range of properties including high strength. Its ferrite content is slightly higher and this makes it more magnetic compared to other PH alloys. Heat treatment can be used to improve formability before cold working. We are the best Stainless steel manufacturer and supplier of 17-4 PH stainless steel plate and steel coil and 17-4 PH round steel and plate. This alloy can also be found in aerospace, gas turbines, chemical processing plants, oil refineries, food processing, and other fields.
● Melting Range: 2560-2625°F (1404-1440°C)
● Density: 0.2820 lb/in³
Mechanical Properties of Stainless Steel:
Stainless steel(17-4ph) has great mechanical properties. For applications that require high strength and toughness and corrosion resistance, 17-4PH stainless steel is an excellent choice and is more economical than many non-ferrous high-nickel metal alloys.
Resistance to Corrosion:
17-4 PH stainless steel has excellent toughness. It is more corrosion-resistant than any standard hardened stainless steel. This metal has been proven useful under various corrosive conditions in petrochemical, petroleum, dairy and food industries, as well as ship axles and other applications.
Due to the mechanical properties of this stainless steel, which is high tensile strength and also excellent stress corrosion resistance this metal is highly used in the aerospace industry. These advantages are very important because the parts of aircraft or other aerospace equipment must operate in different environments or temperatures, so it is very important to have good corrosion resistance and high strength.
Use in Marine Vessels
The alloy has excellent corrosion resistance and high mechanical strength. This makes it possible to use in marine applications. Due to its corrosion resistance, it can withstand the effects of salty seawater. Most process pipes, seawater pipes and heat exchangers are made of alloys.
Do you know that this alloy is also used in nuclear power engineering? Well, we know that nuclear power generation usually uses fuel. The fuel that is used should be cooled and stored for a period of time. Spent or used fuel components from nuclear energy technology are stored in dry casks.
Turbine Blade Design
The next time you see a gas turbine or windmill in operation, remember that it works normally due to the use of 17-4 PH stainless steel in the structure. The material of turbine blades must be able to withstand the harsh conditions of high pressure and high temperature. Modern turbine blades designs use high-temperature resistant alloys, such as 17-4 PH stainless steel. The fact that this alloy has high strength and can maintain its strength under adverse conditions such as high temperatures makes it an ideal choice for turbine blade design. Engine manufacturers such as Rolce Royce or Pratt and Whitney use this alloy to develop turbine blades for their huge engines.
