Heat Treatment and Mechanical Properties of Cylinder Bodies

Cylinders are a type of container used for storing gases under high pressure, and therefore the heat treatment and mechanical properties of their cylinders are of paramount importance. The following is an overview of the heat treatment and mechanical properties of cylinder bodies in general:

Heat Treatment:

ANNEALING: Removing stresses and increasing the toughness and ductility of a material by heating to a suitable temperature followed by slow cooling.

Normalizing: by rapid cooling in oil or water after heating to a suitable temperature to increase the hardness and strength of the material.

Quenching: By rapid cooling in order to change the organization of the material to martensite and further increase the hardness and strength.

Aging treatment: Holding at a certain temperature for a certain period of time in order to reduce residual stresses and improve the stability of the material.

Mechanical properties:

Strength: Cylinders need to have sufficient tensile, compressive and flexural strength to withstand the forces of internal high pressure gases.

Toughness: when subjected to external impact or internal high-pressure gas diffusion, the material needs to have good toughness to prevent fracture.

Ductility: in use may be subjected to deformation or extrusion, so it needs to have a certain degree of ductility to avoid the occurrence of brittle fracture.

Corrosion resistance: cylinders need to resist corrosion of gaseous media, so it is usually necessary to carry out appropriate anti-corrosion treatment on the material or choose materials with better corrosion resistance.

There is a complex relationship between heat treatment and mechanical properties. Cylinders need to be manufactured in such a way as to ensure hardness and strength while maintaining as much toughness and ductility as possible in the material to ensure its safety and reliability in use. Specific heat treatment processes and mechanical property requirements will vary depending on the specific use of the cylinder, the design requirements, and the materials used.
