Introduction to Heat Treatment4 Apr 2022
An essential step in welding and manufacturing metal constructions and equipment is the heat treatment process. During heat treatment, the material is heated up and cooled down, using predefined methods to achieve the desired mechanical properties like metallurgical structure, hardness, toughness, strength, etc.
The process of using steam turbines to generate electrical energy is complex and has many parameters. Maintaining these systems therefore requires (extensive) knowledge and experience; not only to identify and solve failures, but also to recognize distinct details that relate to the way machines interact and influence each other.
