Timken Fine-Grained Alloy Steel

Timken® steel is produced by the electric arc-furnace method and is further processed in a ladle refiner where pinpoint chemistry control is achieved. By constantly stirring with inert argon under a near-perfect vacuum, impurities and harmful gases are removed. During this process, other elements are added to fine-tune the internal grain structure and the sulfur is extracted to very low levels.

After refining, it is teemed into large, bottom-poured ingots or continuously cast into large blooms. These ingots or blooms may be rolled into round bars for machining or conversion into seamless tubing, or rounds and square round bars for forging.
