Dictionary of Industry Terms

  • T&C :
    Threaded and Coupled.

  • TBE :
    Threaded Both Ends.

  • TEMPER CARBON :
    Graphite produced by heating at a temperature below the melting point.

  • TEMPERING (also termed drawing) :
    Reheating, after hardening to some temperature below the critical temperature range followed by any rate of cooling.
    Note a — Although the terms “tempering" and "drawing" are practically synonymous as used in commercial practice, the term "tempering" is preferred.
    Note b — Tempering meaning the operation of hardening followed by reheating IS a usage which is illogical and confusing in the present state of the art of heat treating and should be discouraged.

  • TEMPERING OR DRAWING :
    This process is applied to relieve stresses due to hardening and to adjust the hardness to the value desired. The hardened steel is reheated to a temperature below the lower critical range and is then permitted to cool.

  • TENSILE STRENGTH :
    The maximum load, per unit of original cross-sectional area, a material in tension is capable of withstanding before complete failure or rupture.  As known as ultimate  tensile strength.

  • TERNARY ALLOY :
    Alloy having three principal elements.

  • TOUGHNESS :
    Property of absorbing considerable energy before fracture; usually represented by the area under a stress-strain curve, and therefore involving both ductility and strength.

  • TURN :
    A work shift in the mill of usually 8 hours duration.
