Heat treatment system of 4J58 alloy
For the heat treatment system of 4J58 alloy, the standard stipulates the following steps:
Place the expansion coefficient performance test sample in a hydrogen or vacuum environment.
Heat the sample until its temperature reaches 900℃±20℃.
Keep the sample at this temperature for 1 hour to ensure adequate heat treatment.
Cool the sample to below 200°C at a speed of no more than 5°C/min.
Remove the specimen from the heat treatment equipment.

Such a heat treatment process helps improve the internal structure and properties of the alloy and ensures that it has the required thermal expansion and contraction behavior.
4J58 smelting and casting process
For the smelting and casting process of 4J58 alloy, the following steps are generally followed:
First, the 4J58 alloy is smelted using a non-vacuum induction furnace or electric arc furnace. These furnaces provide a high temperature environment and melt alloy materials.
In the furnace, the corresponding raw materials and alloying elements are gradually added to ensure the correct proportions and proportions of ingredients. This results in the desired alloy composition and properties.
Through proper operation and control, the temperature and cooling process in the furnace are maintained so that the alloy materials can be fully melted and mixed. This helps to obtain a uniform solution and eliminate impurities.
After the smelting is completed, the step of electroslag redissolution can be carried out. This step helps remove impurities, making the alloy purer and ensuring the stability of its properties.
Through the above smelting and casting process, 4J58 alloy with the required chemical composition and good properties can be obtained.
