MOHAMMAD SIDDIQUE NASAR, Asad ullah, Saadat ullah khan Suri


Carburizing technologies are used to provide strength on low quality metals. This technology is being developing with novel improvements significantly. The carburizing process consists of, first releasing Carbon mono-oxide from charcoal material and then transfers carbon to raw metal. There are favorable upgradations in these technologies from researchers which have a paramount industrial importance. In Vacuum gas carburizing, the steel metal is carburized with (Acetylene and Propane) gases. These gases are at low pressure and high temperature. The results show that the metal is 1.5 times harder than its raw form. There are also used mathematical models to validate the results. It used gas and solid phases for validation. In pulse carburizing, carbon diffusion on steel is investigated with heat treatment. This process includes several carburizing stages. This process is based on Darken bi velocity and drift velocity. It accounts to demonstrate the kinetics of carbon transfer on steel surface. This design is very useful by regarding carburizing time for this process design. In Plasma carburizing, the mixtures of gases are used to harden the steel. The carburizing temperature was varied in cementite and mertensite. The favorable results show that these specimens have (Lower surface roughness, Higher surface hardness and Low wear rate). It is a most novel diffusion controlled novel process till the present time. The carburized metal is used in industry by including (Turbine gears and Air craft engine). Henceforth, It is of great importance to study the carburizing technologies for providing better strength on metal.
