Flame Tempering

A heat treatment applied to ferrous products after hardening.

A Tempering treatment follows a quenching or air cooling operation. Tempering is generally considered effective in relieving stresses induced by quenching in addition to lowering hardness to within a specified range, or meeting certain mechanical property requirements.

Tempering consists of heating the steel to some temperature below the transformation range and holding for a suitable time at the temperature, followed by cooling at a suitable rate. The object of tempering is to decrease hardness and increase toughness to produce the desired combination of mechanical properties.
