The Role of Vacuum Treated (Degassed) Steels in Engineering Applications 650697

The role of vacuum treated (degassed) steels is discussed with emphasis on its importance to various engineering applications. Descriptions of the various degassing units and principles of operation are outlined.
Current vacuum degassing techniques offer the consumer improved quality of so-called tonnage and other types of constructional steels, as a result of lowered gas content and nonmetallic inclusions--together with improved control of alloy composition. The end result is a more homogeneous product, with improved properties leading to greater service reliability for various engineering applications.
