The influence of the temperature, applied stress, degree of creep deformation, and aging time on the formation of Z-phase (CrVN) particles in 9% Cr 10Kh9K3V2MFBR martensitic steel at temperatures of 650 and 675°С upon long aging is studied in this work. The particles with a chemical composition determined by energy dispersive spectrometry as 50% (Cr + Fe) and 50% (V + Nb) are detected and identified as particles of the Z‑phase. An increase in the creep test time at both temperatures led to the growth of Z-phase particles. An increase in the temperature provokes earlier nucleation of small Z-phase particles with a change in the mechanism of their nucleation. An enlargement of particles is observed upon localization of plastic deformation. Long-term annealing at temperatures of 650 and 675°C does not lead to the formation of Z-phase particles. Plastic deformation has a crucial effect on the formation of Z-phase particles in steels containing 9% Cr. The temperature, time, applied stress, and strain localization are aggravating factors that cause the growth of this phase.

Abstract The purpose of this study is to identify the relationships between the creep behavior of the 10% Cr martensitic steel with 0.008% B and 0.003% N and changes in microstructure and precipitations of secondary phases. Creep tests were carried out at 650 °C under an applied stress ranging from 180 to 120 MPa. The 10% Cr steel exhibits a linear stress vs. time to rupture dependence without creep strength breakdown up to approximately 40 000 h. The 100 000 h creep rupture strength at 650 °C i...

Abstract The size and distribution of Cr(V,Nb)N (Z-phase) particles in a 9Cr-3Co-2W-0.6Mo-0.1Ni-0.2V-0.06Nb-0.1C-0.05N-0.005B steel subjected to creep rupture test during 11,151 h at 650 °C under an applied stress of 100 MPa were studied. The replacement of V-rich (V,Nb)(C,N) carbonitrides by Z-phase was accelerated by plastic flow as suggested by a comparative analysis of these particles in different portions of crept specimen, namely, the grip section, the portion of uniform elongation, and th...

For high temperature applications, 9–12 wt-%Cr steels in fossil fired power plants rely upon precipitate strengthening from (V,Nb)N MX nitrides for long term creep strength. During prolonged exposure at service temperature, another nitride precipitates: Cr(V,Nb)N Z phase. The Z phases lowly replace MX, eventually causing a breakdown in creep strength. The present paper reviews the Z phase and its behaviour in 9–12 wt-%Cr steels including thermodynamic modelling, crystal structure, nucleation pro...

Two 9Cr–3Co–0.5Mo–VNb steels with 2 and 3 wt% W subjected to normalizing at 1050 °C and subsequent tempering at 750 °C for 3 h were crept at 650 °C under applied stresses ranging from 100 to 220 MPa. Both steels exhibit the creep strength breakdown at a rupture time of ~2000 h. The two-phase separation of M(C,N) carbonitrides to Nb- and V-rich particles occurs during tempering. No additional strain-induced coarsening of M(C,N) carbonitrides takes place under creep conditions. Long-term ageing le...

Abstract Microstructure and hardness in the grip and gage sections of ruptured 3%Со modified P92 steel specimens were examined after creep tests under applied stresses ranging from 200 to 100 MPa at T =650 °C. Under long-term aging, the depletion of W from solid solution leads to precipitation of the Laves phase. In addition, coarsening of MX carbonitrides occurs after 34 h of aging. The final dimensions of these particles are independent of further aging time. A breakdown of applied stress vs t...

The Z-phase nitride is seen as a detrimental phase in 9 to 12 pct Cr steels as it is in competition with the beneficial MX particles. Two model steels, with 9 pct Cr and 12 pct Cr content, respectively, were designed to study the effect of Cr on Z-phase precipitation kinetics. The steels were isothermally aged at 873 K, 923 K, and 973 K (600 °C, 650 °C, and 700 °C) for up to 30,000 hours in order for Z-phase to replace MX. X-ray diffraction (XRD) analysis of extracted precipitates was used to qu...

Precipitation behavior of Z-phase after long-term creep was investigated in ASME Gr.91, Gr.92, Gr.122 and 12Cr steel with delta-ferrite. Many of Z-phase particles were located around prior austenite grain boundaries (PAGBs) and interface between delta-ferrite and martensite after long-term creep. Part of MX cabonitrides around PAGB and the interface disappeared due to the Z-phase formation, indicating that the deformation resistance around PAGB and the interface is low. Time-Temperature-Precipit...

Abstract The Z-phase (CrVN) precipitation in a 9% Cr–3% Co martensitic steel during creep at 923 K and 948 K has been investigated with aim to establish the effect of temperature on the nucleation mechanism of these particles and their coarsening behavior. Ostwald ripening of VX carbonitrides strongly affects these processes. An increase in creep temperature significantly accelerates the transformation of the nanoscale MX carbonitrides into the Z-phase particles causing the Z-phase nucleation in...
