Use of Ni{sub 3}Al-based alloys for walking-beam furnaces

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

This report summarizes the joint work performed by the Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) and Rapid Technologies, Inc. (the CRADA partner) to determine the potential of Ni{sub 3}Al-based alloys for use in gas-fired walking-beam furnace components. The report identifies tasks to be performed as part of the CRADA and the organization responsible for each task. The work required under each task was completed and is described. The CRADA accomplished the primary goal of utilizing cast Ni{sub 3}Al-based alloy as rails and other components for walking-beam furnaces manufactured by Rapid Technologies. Rapid Technologies, a small business, is implementing on a commercial ... continued below

The CRADA accomplished the primary goal of utilizing cast Ni{sub 3}Al-based alloy as rails and other components for walking-beam furnaces manufactured by Rapid Technologies. Rapid Technologies, a small business, is implementing on a commercial basis a highly energy efficient rapid-heating technology for use in the metal manufacturing industry. The rapid heating process allows energy savings of up to 95%. Although goals of all of the tasks of this CRADA were met, there is still a need for a material to work in the rapid heating furnaces at temperatures in the range of 1,350 to 1,400 C. Future effort should be focused in fulfilling this need.
