Manufacture of heat treated products - heat treatment workshop
|Publication Date:||1 May 2016|
Scope and application
This programme is applicable for approval of manufacturers for:
heat treated products
surface hardened products
as referred in the Society's rules and standards. For a description of general requirements, conditions and procedures related to the approval, please refer to DNVGL CP 0346 which shall be applied in combination with this programme. The corresponding class programmes for the specific products shall also apply.
The approval will typically cover:
an independent heat treatment company
a manufacturer (e.g. foundry) in-house heat treatment facility
a heat treatment sub-contractor
The corresponding requirements are given in App.B.
The programme is applicable for the approval of manufacturers for one or more of the heat treatments:
normalizing or normalizing + tempering
quenching1 and tempering
solution heat treatment without quenching
solution heat treatment with quenching1)
tempering (e.g. malleable cast iron)
stress relieving heat treatment
soft annealing (spheroidize annealing)
coarse grain annealing
Some heat treatment processes may qualify other processes as indicated in App.A. Note that for any other process to be qualified in addition to the tested one, the heat treatment documentation and specifications, see Sec.2, shall be submitted and accepted by the Society.
Surface hardening by mechanical process such as shot peening is not covered by this approval programme.
1Approval is limited to quenching media and quenching method.
