  White cast iron displays white color cracks when it fractures due to carbide impurities. The carbon content within the cast iron precipitates large molecules that increase its hardness and durability in applications.

White Cast Iron is A type of cast iron with lower levels of carbon and improved tensile strength. White iron is too brittle for use in many structural components but is used in Wear surfaces (impeller and volute) of slurry pumps, Shell liners and lifter bars in grinding mills, Balls and rings in coal pulverisers and Teeth of a backhoe's digging buckets. gray iron, malleable iron, chilled iron, white iron, and nodular or ductile iron. If an iron alloy exceeds about 2% car-bon, the carbon does not have to nucleate from decomposition of austenite, but instead, it can form directly from the melt by a eutectic reaction. Note .

Ramesh Singh, in Applied Welding Engineering (Second Edition), White Cast Iron. White cast iron is formed when on solidification, carbon in solution is not able to form graphite White cast irons are hard and brittle; they cannot easily be machined. White cast iron is unique in that it is the only member of the cast iron family in which carbon is present only as carbide.

The carbides in chrome white iron have a hardness range of HV and are primarily eutectic carbides. They form as bundles of hollow hexagonal rods. The growth of these rods will drastically affect the properties of the casting, which is controlled through the careful engineering of the chemical composition.

The alloy constituents affect its colour when fractured: white cast iron has carbide impurities which allow cracks to pass straight through, grey cast iron has graphite flakes which deflect a passing crack and initiate countless new cracks as the material breaks, and ductile cast iron has spherical graphite "nodules" which stop the crack from further progressing.

Abstract: The effect of boron, in the amounts of, and wt.%, on the volume fraction and structure of carbides in Cr white irons was examined.

It was demonstrated that the addition of boron can change the microstructural characteristics of white iron containing about 13 wt.% Cr. Eutectic carbides in alloyed white cast iron Fe3C, (Cr,Fe)7C3 and Fe23(C,B)6 carbides in chromium white cast iron Ledeburite in Fe – % C – % Si – % Mn – % Cr white cast iron Ledeburite in eutectic white cast iron.

Multi-component white cast iron was developed for rolling mill rolls. The morphology and alloy concentration of carbides precipitated during solidification were investigated using X-ray diffraction, SEM, TEM and EDS analyses in cast iron with typical chemical composition of Fe-2% C-5% Cr-5% V-5% Mo-5% W-5% Co(mass%).

Unalloyed white iron castings develop hardnesses in the range Bhn. Their microstructure consists of primary iron carbides with a microhardness of Vhn in a matrix of pearlite with a microhardness of Vhn. Alloyed martensitic white irons, however, develop Brinell hardnesses in the range ❖ The elastic modulus of a white iron is considerably influenced by its carbide structure.

An iron with M3C eutectic carbides has a tensile modulus of to GPa, irrespective of whether it is pearliticor martensitic, while an iron with M7C3eutectic carbides has a modulus of to GPa. The elastic modulus of a white iron.

The most basic carbide type in steel is an intermetallic compound formed between iron and carbon, commonly called cementite. Carbides are hard and brittle, similar to a ceramic material. Cementite has a relatively complex structure but in its simplest form it is 3 iron.

According to several of my technical references, the ASTM A ductile iron is specified in the as-cast condition, and consists of a ferrite/pearlite microstructure. Pearlite is a lamellar structure that consists of two phases – ferrite and iron carbide. A white -iron is identified by its massive primary carbide.

The 'primary' carbides are those, which form during solidification directly from liquid iron and not during subsequent cooling of casting or heat treatment. Unless the carbides are stabilized by alloys, they can be dissociated by a high temperature annealing.

Massive carbides reduce. The as-cast microstructure of Fe–Cr–C–V white irons consists of M7C3and vanadium rich M6C5carbides in austenitic matrix. Vanadium changed the microstructure parameters of phase present in the structure of these alloys, including volume fraction, size and mor- phology.

• White iron exhibits a white, crystalline fracture surface because fracture occurs along the iron carbide plates; it is the result of metastable solidification (Fe3C eutectic). White cast iron does not have the easy castability of other cast irons because its solidification temperature is generally higher, and it solidifies with C in its combined form as iron carbide.

White cast iron has a high compressive strength and excellent wear resistance, and it retains its hardness for limited periods even up to a red heat. C (iron carbide or cementite) •This intermetallic compound is metastable at room T.

It decomposes (very slowly, within several years) into α‐Fe and C (graphite) at ‐ °C ¾Fe‐C liquid solution. White iron. With the right carbon content and a high cooling rate, carbon atoms combine with iron to form iron carbide. This means that there are little to no free graphite molecules in the solidified material.

When white iron is sheared, the fractured face appears white due to the absence of graphite. Home > Tips and Facts > Understanding Cast Irons > White Iron. Understanding Cast Irons - White Iron.

If the composition of the iron is appropriate or the cooling rate of the metal is sufficiently rapid during solidification, the metal will solidify with the C combined with iron as iron carbide.

The microstructure of the as-cast unalloyed white cast iron is shown in Fig. 4, and basically comprises primary dendrites of austenite, which on cooling transformed to a mixture of pearlite and eutectic carbide.

The eutectic carbides form continuous networks, and have a. containing 56 iron atoms and 24 carbon atoms in a unit cell with lattice parameters a = Å and C = Å, point group mmm and space group Pmna [27, ].

Powell [14] found that increasing the chromium and carbon contents in white iron changed the eutectic carbide from continuous M 3C to relatively discontinuous M 7C, as. White cast iron is a type of carbon-iron alloy that contains carbon content greater than 2% in the form of cementite.

When fractured it exhibits a silver-like (white) fracture. White cast iron has high compressive strength and wear resistance.

White cast iron displays white color cracks when it fractures due to carbide impurities. Although the majority of analysis had been performed on high carbon steels, it appeared that the iron-carbide component found in white and mottled cast iron showed the same composition, indicating that its formation mechanism probably was the same.

Various mechanisms. Various views, however, existed on this formation mechanism.Other articles where White iron is discussed: cast iron: either so-called gray iron or white iron, the colours shown by fracture. Gray iron contains more silicon and is less hard and more machinable than is white iron.

Both are brittle, but a malleable cast iron produced by a prolonged heat treatment was developed in France in the 18th century.Cementite (or iron carbide) is a compound of iron and carbon, more precisely an intermediate transition metal carbide with the formula Fe 3 C.

By weight, it is % carbon and % iron. It has an orthorhombic crystal structure. It is a hard, brittle material, normally classified as a ceramic in its pure form, and is a frequently found and important constituent in ferrous metallurgy.
