Structural characterization of nitrided 34CrAlNi7 steel
TURK, A., OK, O.
vol. 47 (2009), no. 2, pp. 121 - 127

The nitriding behaviour of 34CrAlNi7 alloy steel was investigated under three different nitriding processes. One of them is salt-bath nitriding that was carried out at a temperature of 525 °C for treatment time of 1, 2 and 3 h. The others are ion nitriding and fluidized bed nitriding that were conducted at 500 °C and 540 °C, respectively, in treatment time of 6, 12 and 18 h. The thickness of compound layer, measured by means of a digital thickness instrument attached to optical microscope, ranged from 3 µm to 16 µm depending on nitriding technique and treatment time. The presence of γ'-Fe4N and ε-Fe2-3N phases formed in the compound layer was confirmed by XRD analysis. Kinetics studies showed that the effective diffusion coefficients are 453 x 10-14, 77.8 x 10-14 and 278 x 10-14 m2s-1 for salt bath, plasma and fluidized bed processes, respectively.
