52100 is a high carbon, chromium containing low alloy steel that is through hardening and noted in particular for use as bearings.
Principal applications are those for bearings in rotating machinery. Balls, rollers and rings for roller bearings, diameter up to 30 mm.
Physical properties (avarage values) at ambient temperature
Modulus of elasticity [103 x N/mm2]: 190-210
Density [g/cm3]: 7.83
Thermal conductivity [W/m.K]: 20.0
Electric resistivity [Ohm mm2/m]: 0.65
Specific heat capacity[J/g.K]: 0.46
Heat to 760-800oC, cool slowly in furnace. This will produce a maximum Brinell hardness of 207.
Stress relieving to remove machining stresses should be carried out by heating to 650oC, holding for one hour at heat, followed by air cooling. This operation is performed to reduce distortion during heat treatment.
Harden from a temperature of 830-870oC followed by oil quenching. Hardness after quenching is 64 HRC.
Tempering temperature: 150-180oC.
Hot forming temperature: 1200-926oC.
Machinability of 52100 alloy is good by conventional methods. A spherodizing anneal at 1200 F before machining will improve the overall machinability of the alloy.
This is a high carbon alloy typically used in bearing applications where welding is not applicable or appropriate.
