Definitions for "Heat treatment"
Altering the properties of steel by subjecting it to a series of temperature changes. To increase the hardness, strength, or ductility of steel so that it is suitable for additional applications. The steel is heated and then cooled as necessary to provide changes in the structural form which will impart the desired characteristics. The time spent at each temperature and the rates of cooling have significant impact on the effect of the treatment.
A combination of heating and cooling operations and applied to a metal or alloy to produce desired properties and microstructures.
The subjection of metals and alloys to controlled heating and cooling after fabrication to relieve internal stresses and improve the physical properties.
Process of changing or eliminating the colour of a natural or synthetic gemstone by controlled heating.
Any gem treatment involving heat, usually to improve color or clarity.
The application of high heat to a gemstone in order to improve its color and clarity.
Second album by rock and roll singer-songwriter near-legend Graham Parker. A close follow-up to the debut album, Howlin' Wind, Heat Treatment was well received by critics and contains signature Parker songs like the rollicking title track, "Pourin' It All Out", and "Fool's Gold". "That's What They All Say" is a Dylan-esque putdown from a realist perspective, while "Turned Up Too Late" was perhaps Parker's most emotionally mature composition to date.
A biosolids conditioning process combining high temperature, time and pressure to improve the dewaterability of biosolids.
High temperature conditions used to sterilize seeds or to break dormancy.
The process in which a commodity is heated until it reaches a minimum temperature for a minimum period of time, according to an officially recognized technical specification.
Lämpökäsittely Värmebehand ling The method where black liquor is heated to 180 C to get molecular chains to get shortened. This procedure decreases viscosity of black liquor so much that storing of product liquor in an atmospheric tank is possible
an aboriginal process by which the flaking properties of a rock were improved by controlled heating in a fire.
