Steel castings are ideal for parts that endure wear, shocks or heavy loads. Stronger than wrought iron, cast iron and malleable iron, steel castings are very tough. At Carson Castings, we have the ability to source a wide range of materials to meet the needs of your company. Our experienced professionals can work with you and your company to determine if steel castings are right for your job.
Special alloy elements are added to alloy steel castings to obtain or increase certain desirable properties. Heat treating will also improve ease of machining, increase wear resistance and remove hydrogen trapped at the surface of the casting. The experienced professionals at Carson Castings can answer all of your questions regarding the strength and durability of steel castings.
Carbon steel castings are designated as:
- Low carbon contains less than .20 percent carbon, with tensile strength (annealed) from 40,000 to 70,000 psi.
- Medium carbon contains .20 to .50 percent carbon, with tensile strength (annealed) from 65,000 to 105,000 psi.
- High carbon contains .50 percent carbon, with tensile strength (annealed) from 95,000 to 125,000 psi.
Stainless steel castings resist atmospheric corrosion, the attachment of hot or cold acids, and scaling at elevated temperatures. Stainless steel castings can be designed to resist corrosion and high temperature oxidation. Another application of stainless steel is where unusual mechanical properties of hardness, strength, toughness or ductility are required, including resistance to wear and abrasion. If you would like to learn more about the benefits of steel castings, give us a call or send us an email. We would be happy to discuss all of your company’s casting needs.
