Heating rates up to 4000°C/sec and quenching rates up to 2500°C/sec to characterize and optimize of steel and metal alloys processing
Quenching dilatometers allow to study the heat treatment of steel and metal alloys, helping identifying the heating rate, the quenching rate and the isothermal dwell times to be used in metals manufacturing to yield the crystalline structure to necessary to meet the required physical properties.
The related microstructural changes may be observed through process simulation with real-time monitoring of dimensional change. Among other things, measurements of distinct alloy compositions are used to create time-temperature transformation diagrams (TTT) and continuous-cooling transformation diagrams (CCT), which are critical in process design and optimization. With heating rates up to 4000°C/sec and cooling rates of 2500°C/sec, the DIL 805 series quenching dilatometers provide the most accurate measurements over the widest range of heating, cooling and deformation conditions, allowing for the most sophisticated characterization and optimization of metals.
