COLD TREATMENT AS A WAY TO IMPROVE THE WEAR RESISTANCE DRILLING TOOLS MATERIAL
The results of experiments on the effect of cold treatment (extracts samples at -75 °C) on the basic mechanical properties (σ0,2, Rm, KCV, HRC) and the wear resistance of the drill steel (9255 and G41400) after quenching at different temperatures. A substantial increase in wear resistance (in 18 ÷ 26%, respectively) with a slight increase of strength (1 ÷ 1,1%) and reduction of the toughness (in 1,4 ÷ 19%) of the samples subjected to cold treatment, compared with materials undergone a conventional heat treatment. It is concluded that the cold treatment can be considered as a promising additional step of heat treatment to increase the wear resistance of steels used for the manufacture of mining tools – the peak of hydraulic hammers, drill rods, casings crowns and other mining equipment, operating in conditions of abrasive wear.
