- Mr Zamiur Rahman, Peter J Stewart-Hay replied to the topic 'Re: Annealing Aluminum Conductors' in the forum.Hi Peter,
Many thanks for your reply.
We do anneal individual wires on bobbins in oven, however, just wanted to see if we can do that on a stranded (1+6) conductor too and how much tensile strength we can reduce over time by effectively setting the annealing temperature in the oven. I will continue my tests to find it out
- Hi Peter,
Thanks for your valuable input. It is good to learn from your post.
I have a question regarding annealing process (test base) of H16 1120 Al 7/3.00 mm strand. I was given a task to anneal approx. a drum length of Al 1120 7/3.00 mm strand conductor so that the tensile strength of the annealed conductor wires would be approx. as H14 1350 conductor. I have tried different temp. and soaking time in heating oven (where we usually do annealing for Al wires on bobbins). As we all have to use the same oven, I have to be time efficient to use the oven.
Would you please suggest a process on how should I continue, i.e. the required temp and duration of annealing etc.
