Train wheel material
· Train wheels are made of killed steel smelted in open hearth furnaces, electric furnaces or converters.
·The chemical composition generally has a carbon content of 0.55-0.65. The wheel steel code used by Maanshan Iron & Steel Co., Ltd. is called CL60, which means that the carbon content is about 0.6%. Others have a small amount of silicon, manganese and other elements. In general, the wheel steel is high carbon. steel.
· If the carbon content is low and the hardness is insufficient, the train wheel wear speed is very fast.
