Our project aims in improving the wear resistance and hardness of SS 410 Material. But the same material can also be used for higher applications by improving its wear resistance and hardness. improve its life. Ex: steam turbine blades. surgical equipments. kitchen utensils. Most of the Stainless steel find its application towards house hold applications. . but it finds poor in its hardness and wear resistance. components subjected to sea water etc. Aim & Objective Stainless steel is cheaply available in the market and it is well known for its corrosion resistance.

24% Chromium : 11.04% Nickel : 12.5%  Mechanical Specification: Tensile Strength : 590 Mpa Compressive Strength: 350 Mpa Elongation : 20% Reduction Area : 45% .15% Manganese : 1% Silicon : 1% Sulphur : 0.03% Phosphorous : 0. Materials Used:  Material identified for the research work is AISI 410  Chemical Specification: Carbon : 0.

Properties of 410 SS:  Higher corrosion resistance  Higher work hardening rate  Higher hot hardness  Higher ductility  Attractive appearance  Lower maintenance .

Various Surface Heat Treatment Process  Annealing.etc. hardening  Nitriding  Carburizing  Cyaniding or carbo nitriding  Flame hardening  Vacuum tempering . . Normalizing.

Purpose of Annealing and Vacuum Tempering  Obtain high surface hardness  Increase wear resistance  Improve fatigue life  Improve corrosion resistance  Smooth surface finish .

Vacuum tempering process is done for 10 min. 30 min. 120 min & 180 min.VT 1 Specimen 4 – VT 2 Specimen 5 – VT 3 Specimen 6– VT 4 .FA1 Specimen 2 – FA2 Specimen 3 . Comparison between the following materials are yet to be made Untreated specimen Specimen 1 .Experiments Done So Far: The component has been full annealed for 2 different timing parameters 30 min. 120min.

Untreated specimen .VT3 .FA1 .43-44 HRC Specimen 5 .FA2 .42-43 HRC Specimen 6 .4-5 HRC Specimen 2 .VT2 .45-46 HRC .3 HRC Specimen 1 .Hardness measurement : The hardness value were being compared with the untreated specimen by Rockwell hardness measurement.0 HRC Specimen 3 -VT1 .42-43 HRC Specimen 4 .VT4 .
