Heat treatment in steel, is the process of heat application to steel to change its current condition or characteristics. Coldness and the hotness of the steel metal is the one that determined the amount of heat being used in the treatment of the metals. When you feel the metal the temperatures are either hot or cold. Managing the heat is absolutely the measuring of the hotness or the coldness of the metal.
In such cases the range of the temperature lies between harmful crispt harmful hot. Process of using heat to treat steel is very much important as it allows steel to change its original conditions so that there is usefulness in the final product. Steel is mostly composed of metal named iron. Some of the highlights of metal should know by everyone who wants to have a proper understanding of the steel treatment process.
For people to understand what happens if heat is applied to iron, we must start to know regarding ferrite. When one wants to machine a metal with ease they must have a situation where at the room temperature it is hard and has good ductility. On the ferrite situation it can only work under the circumstances where at normal temperature the ferrite is in crystal condition.
Just like the sugar or the salt, the alloy get formed of excellent glasses, and they are very many of them. A Lattice structure is as a result of the bonded crystal particles that found In iron primarily known as the ferrous. The Same kind of bonding we see in the water is the bonding that is seen in the ferrous compound. It is possible to have water in three ways, and that is gas, liquid and solid. No matter the form into which it exists it is still the water that is known by everyone. In the different states that water can be found the crystal composition is different. That now explains why the ferrite is an only condition of the iron metal. During the process of application of heat to iron things start to happen to the glossy section of steel which is subjected to heat. An iron oxide is formed as a result of heating iron and having oxygen surrounding the iron.
Iron is heated in the presence of oxygen and the only thing that is observed when the steel is overly heated is scale. Change of composition and the evolution of the metal are well seen when there is a change in the temperatures especially at very high levels. Here the ferrite is changed to austenite. The crystal composition converts from cubic which is body-centered into the face-centered cubic structure. When the process is the magnetism that is associated with iron is nowhere to be found, and there is a complete change of the metal.
