Access from EThOS:
Ferritic plasma nitrocarburising of iron and steels has been carried out using a pilot scale industrial plasma processing unit. Atmospheres containing nitrogen, hydrogen, carbon dioxide, and in some cases methane were employed during the investigation. The nitrocarburised compound layers formed as a result of this glow discharge thermochemical treatment have been examined using a variety of metallographic and surface analysis techniques (including NRA, EPMA, AES, GDOES). Following the characterisation of the resultant compound layers, falex wear tests were performed on selected specimens to evaluate the wear resistance of the various nitrocarburised surfaces.
