High Energy Planetary Milling Of Fe, Cr & Ni Powder

Rajput, Abhimanyu and Bhuyan, Prashant (2011) High Energy Planetary Milling Of Fe, Cr & Ni Powder. BTech thesis.



Stainless steel powder is widely used in offshore applications as it has excellent corrosion resistance property. In the present study, high-energy planetary milling of elemental Fe, Cr and Ni powder was carried out for 30 hours to prepare nanostructured stainless steel powder. In one set of experiment Cr: Ni weight ratio was 18:8 (rest Fe) whereas in another set the ratio was 20:10 (rest Fe). Milling was carried out in Toluene at a speed of 300 rpm for 30 hours. The extent of alloying, along with the structural and morphological changes of the occurring in the powder form of nano-material was analyzed and studied using X-ray diffractometer, Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM) and Energy Dispersive Spectroscopy (EDS).
