Investigation of magnetic effects on austenitic stainless steels after low temperature carburization

  • This work aims at investigating the magnetic effects of austenitc stainless steels which can occur after a low temperature carburisation depending on the alloy. Samples were prepared of different alloys and subjected to a multiple low temperature carburisation to obtain different treatment conditions for each alloy. The layer characterisation was carried out by light microscope and also by hardening profiles and shows that the layer develops with each additional treatment cycle. A lattice expansion could be detected in all treated samples by X-ray diffraction. Magnetisability was measured using Feritscope and SQUID measurements. Not all alloys showed magnetisability after treatment. In addition to MFM measurements, experiments with Ferrofluid were also used to visualize the magnetic areas. These studies show that only about half of the formed layer becomes magnetisable and has a domain-like structure.
