BETTER RAILS

AMELIORATION DES RAILS

By using eutectoid steel with higher carbon and manganese contents than customary, only insignificantly deformed, hard, fatigue resistant rails are obtained when the following patented heat treatment is applied. Start heat treatment immediately after finish rolling. Step-quench in fluidized powder (e.g., of metallic chromium and superheated steam) above Ms, transform isothermally to lower bainite, and temper.
