CHROMIZING

Chromizing is a type of metallurgical process that involves diffusion of a single or several elements within a base material. The process is mainly composed of saturating through diffusion of predominantly steel or ferrous alloys with chromium. It can be accomplished in a few methods to include: pace, slurry or vapor phase. Surface Products currently provides this service in slurry.

It is performed to prolong the lifespan of components and tools that are often exposed to corrosion and wear, like in cases of gas corrosion at temperatures higher than 900°C. This technique is widely applied in industries such as:

  • Paper
  • Nuclear
  • Electric
  • Chemical
  • Power generation

Chromizing Applications:

  • Turbine components
  • Fracking pump components
  • Pump components
  • Machined components
  • High temperature alloys
  • Foundry
