Carbon steel is formed using a simple high temperature forging method in which molten forms of both metals are combined to form an alloy. The carbon content along with the steel increases its durability, and enhances the hardening properties of the alloy at different temperature ranges. The forging process commences with addition of different metals like chromium, molybdenum, copper and niobium which enhances the various functional and resistant properties of the alloy. To create solid alloy that is immovable when to comes to strength, increasing the carbon content can be an option but, an increased carbon content reduces the ductility of the alloy. Increasing the carbon content equally affects the melting properties of the alloy.
Forged fittings made from the carbon steel are used in condition where the wear and tear of components made form ordinary metals make them redundant and need quick replacement. The forged fittings are quickly processed in the dies due to their quick hardening properties which makes slow processing difficult. The use of several other metals like chromium increases the resistance of the fittings against pitting and crevice cracking, both being instrumental in degrading ordinary components easily. Forged fittings assist in regulating seamless supply inside a piping system.
