Carbides Analysis in Nickel-Based Alloy

Three nickel-based samples (labeled as sample #2, #3 and #6) showing gamma prime particles and primary carbides are submitted for analysis.

Figure 1. Part of the original image showing the largest particle found in sample 6 as 13.84 microns (0.1691 microns/pixel)

Figure 2. Longest stringer found in sample 3 as 27.26 microns (0.1691 microns/pixel).

PURPOSE

Demonstrate the ability of Clemex Vision image analysis system can distinguish the gamma prime particles, the primary carbides and perform size, shape, alignment and distribution measurements on them. The methods and operations used are discussed in the report linked at the bottom of this page (click the Download PDF link below).

RESULTS

All particles and inter particle zone were measured for their circular diameter. The mean free path of the gamma prime particles was also evaluated. The denuded zones were measured for their respective area and also for their overall area percentage.
