Alloy production solutions

Alloy is also an important raw material used in the steel making process. Alloy steel is a mixture of iron ore, chromium, silicon, nickel, carbon and manganese, and it is one of the most versatile metals around. With rich experience in alloy production projects, MET has powerful team mastering excellent design of alloy steel production solutions. MET is able to design and provide comprehensive and high-quality alloy production solutions based on the professional skills and rich experience accumulated in the previous projects.

Currently, electric furnaces and basic oxygen furnaces have been the standard forms of industrial alloy steel production, while other methods have become outdated. As for alloy production, MET can provide scientific and reasonable electric furnace solutions and basic oxygen solutions.

The processing methods for alloy steel depend on the desired result. The required combination of elements is first melted together in a furnace at over 1600℃ for 8 to 12 hours. The steel is then annealed at over 500℃ in order to remove impurities and to alter the physical and chemical properties.

Next, the mill scale (a mixture of iron oxides), which results from the annealing process, is removed from the surface of the steel with hydrofluoric acid before repeating the annealing and descaling process. Finally, the steel is melted and cast for rolling and shaping into the final form.
