Abstract

Purpose

The purpose of this investigation was to evaluate the performance of high velocity oxy fuel (HVOF) coated SS-310 samples in a carburizing environment.

Design/methodology/approach

The carburization behavior of metallic coatings with three different compositions was studied under isothermal carburizing exposure conditions at 900°C for 125 hours. The coatings were deposited on SS 310 substrates using the HVOF technique. The ASTM Standard method was used to evaluate coating adhesion. Scanning electron microscopy coupled with energy dispersive X-ray spectroscopy, X-ray diffraction and weight gain were used to evaluate the surface morphology, microchemical composition, phase constitution and degree of environmental protection imparted by the coatings.

Findings

The experimental results indicate that Ni-rich coating offered better protection to SS 310 alloy compared to Co-rich coatings in carburizing environments. This was thought to be due to the formation of a continuous protective layer of Cr2O3 on the Ni-rich coating surface.

Originality/value

The study has direct practical relevance to the petrochemical industry, particularly for refinery applications. In refinery service, SS310 is used in header damper plates. The useful service life of such header plates can be extended by the use of high temperature corrosion resistant metallic coatings. The present investigation highlighted the protection offered by Ni-based HVOF coated SS-310 samples in carburizing environment.
