The purpose of the heating of the billet is to improve the plasticity of the steel, reduce the resistance to deformation, and provide a good metallographic structure of the steel for rolling the tube.
There are four basic requirements for the heating of the billet or plate:
① The temperature is accurate to ensure the best wearability Perforation within the temperature range;
② uniform heating, to ensure that the temperature difference between the horizontal and vertical of the billet is not more than 20 ℃;
③ less burning loss, to ensure that the billet does not undergo oxidation during heating;
④ no heating defects, to ensure that Heat cracking, adhesion, severe oxidation, overheating or overheating.
