Optimized Heat Treatment to Improve Cold Toughness

When:  May 18, 2021 from 10:00 AM to 11:00 AM (ET)
Concerns of cold temperature brittle fracture of steel continue to haunt the petroleum industry. After years of study, optimized heat treatment was found to dramatically improve low carbon steels' cold temperature toughness. This talk summarizes several of the key heat treatment parameters affecting (and improving) the cold temperature toughness of steel plus provides a path forward to modernizing the heat treatment industry.
