The steel plate for hull structure is also called marine plate or shipbuilding steel. Due to the harsh working environment of the ship, the hull shell is subject to the chemical corrosion of seawater, so the requirements for steel for the hull structure are strict. First of all, good toughness for marine plate KF40 ocean engineering steel plateis the most critical requirement. In addition, it requires higher strength, good corrosion resistance, welding performance, processing performance and surface quality.
"As Covid 19 spreads around the world, all unnecessary businesses and factories have been closed in Italy this week. South Korea's POSCO, the world's fifth-largest steelmaker, announced on March 24th that it would close its KF40 ocean engineering steel plate wire-processing centre near the northern Italian city of Verona from Thursday March 26th until April 3rd. POSCO has already closed two wire-processing centres in Delhi and Pune. Two wire processing centers in Malaysia and Thailand also announced last week that they will be closed until March 31."
KF40 ocean engineering steel plate surface cracks refer to the linear cracks on the surface of KF40 ocean engineering steel plate, which should generally be the same as the forging or rolling direction. Formation reason: it is mainly due to the hairline, hot crack and cold crack caused by surface over burning, decarburization, looseness, deformation and excessive internal stress during processing (forging, rolling, heat treatment, quenching and tempering), as well as the high content of sulfur and phosphorus impurities on the surface. Inspection method: KF40 ocean engineering steel plate surface cracks can be detected by naked eye observation, acid pickling, magnetic particle inspection, coloring inspection and metallographic method.
KF40 ocean engineering steel plate, Special thick steel plate cutting needs to be preheated in advance. Some steel plates are prone to cracks after entering the cutting process, sometimes that is because the temperature is too low, and it is necessary to perform pre-heat treatment in advance for such cases. The staff can preheat the steel plates first, so that the temperature of the steel plates will gradually increase, and then the flame gun can be used to cut. The probability of cracks in the cut material is very low, and the quality of the steel plate is also guaranteed.
