 Heat treatment is a term used in the industry to describe a process whereby the physical properties of a metal may be charged by subjecting it to heat.
Here the job is cooling by air, water and oil. To hold the job various type of tools is used. Metals can be of two types: alloy steel/tool steel and mild steel.



                              Figure:   Heat Treatment Department/Heat Treatment 4&5 Furnace

Alloy steel :
Alloy steels are those which contain, in addition to carbon and iron, some alloying elements, such as chromium, vanadium, nickel, molybdenum or tungsten, which give them some particular characteristics not possessed by ordinary steel

Mild steel
Mild steel at first carburizing and then it is hardened in oil, water or air .
Preparation for carburizing:
1)     Charcoal – 58%
2)     Barium carbonate – 15%
3)     Sodium – 0.2%
4)     Molasses – As required
5)     Stone Coal – 25%

Different types of machine and furnace :
1.      Semi-Muffle Gas Fire  furnace
2.      Salt bath Muffle Gas Fire  furnace
3.      Rock Well Hardness Tester
4.      Water bath for quenching 
5.      Electrical Super Heating Furnace
6.      Electrical Circulating Tempering Furnace
7.      Oil- Bath For Quenching
8.      Grinding wheel machine

1)Semi-Muffle Gas Fire  furnace :                                         Various type of gas and Electrical furnace used for heat treatment.
   # Procedure : The temperature of carburizing is 950 0C to 1000 0C. Here carbon push  1-2 mm. The temperature of hardening 750 0C to 800 0C, The temperature of alloy steel is 850 0C to 1150 0C, The temperature of tempering is 150 0C to 550 0C and The temperature of annealing is 600 0C to 650 0C.

2)Electrical Super Heating Furnace :    It is used to hardening.

3)Salt bath Muffle Gas Fire  furnace : It is used for carburizing and hardening.

4)Oil- Bath For Quenching : The name of the oil is silt volute which is used in oil Bath.
    # operation : It is used to quenching the job.

5)Rock Well Hardness Tester : It is used to measure the hardness of metal.

6)Electrical Circulating Tempering Furnace : It is used to tempering. The temperature of tempering is 150 0C to 550 0C. When hardness is more than need then the hardness is minimize by this machine.

7)Grinding wheel machine : It is used to spark test of material.

“Equalizer connection is needed in lap winding armature but not in wave winding “ why ?

The equivalent circuit of a four point – pole dynamo with a simplex winding. The voltage induced in each path is assumed to both to be same and should be if the reluctance of each magnetic path is the same, so that the lines of flux cut by each inductor of each path are the same. However wear of the bearings or deflection of the armature shaft may cause the armature to be closer to some poles and farther from others, thus changing the length of the air gap, and therefore the reluctance of the magnetic circuits of the poles is not identical. This factors cause the voltage in the materials making up the magnetic circuit. These factors cause the voltage in each parallel path differ, and the unequal voltages in turn cause flow of a circulatingcurrent through the windings and brushes , undue heating of the armature and waste the power. To reduce the circulating current, points on the winding which should be at the same potentials are brought to the same potentials by connecting them with …



What are the advantages and disadvantages of hydraulic brakes?

Differentiate among progressive die, compound die and combination die.

Progressive die: The dies which performed two or more operations at different stages every time the ram descends is known as Progressive die.
The principle advantage of Progressive die is in the number of operations that can be achieved with one handling of the stock strip. The main disadvantage is that work pieces may become “dished” as they pushed through the die as they generally have very little support.

Compound die: A compound die differs from a progressive die in that it performs two or more cutting operations during one stroke of the press at one station only.

Compound dies are slower in operation than progressive dies but they have advantages for certain jobs, especially where tolerance are close (1)the cutting operation, by the action of the knockout plate ,ensures flatness of the blank.2 Large parts can be blanked in a smaller press if compound dies rather than progressive dies areused.
Combination dies:A die in which a cutting operation is combined with a noncutting operation …

Why a dc generator fails to build up voltage?



Boiler: A steam boiler is usually a closed vessel made of steel. Its function is to transfer the heat produced by the combustion of fuel to water and ultimately to generate steam.
Types of boiler:
           1. Fire tube or smoke tube boiler            2. Water tube boiler

                                          Figure: Boiler
Fire tube boiler: In fire tube steam boilers, the flames and hot gases, produced by the combustion of fuel pass through the tubes which are surrounded by water. Fire tube boilers are generally used for relatively small steam capacities and low to medium steam pressure. As a guideline fire tube boilers are completive for steam rates up to 12000kg/h and pressures up to 18 kg/cm².Fire tube boilers are available for operation with oil, gas or solid fuel.

                                   Figure: Vrious parts of boiler
Example: Cochran boiler, Locomotive boiler, Scotch marine boiler, Velcon boiler, simple vertical boiler.
