Why should stainless steel not be held at a temperature between 800°F and 1500°F ( 425°C and 815°C )?

To determine

Reason of not keeping stainless steel between 800°Fand1500°F.


Austenitic group is also known as chromium-nickel group. Austenitic group stainless steel has chromium-nickel content as 18-8, 25-12, 25-20, and so-on. It has less amount of carbon (0.08% to 0.2% carbon). To increase its weldability the carbon content is kept low as much as possible. Austenitic group's chromium content gives resistance to corrosion and its nickel content produces the tough austenitic microstructure. Low content of carbon also help to reduce the carbide precipitation. The carbide precipitation forms when the alloy containing chromium and carbon. The chromium and carbon combine to chromium carbide (Cr3C2). Hence, the amount of chromium decrease for corrosion resistance in metal as it is combined with carbon...
