Topic for term paper, project, thesis: Influence of cleaning agents on the cleaning of strip steels

We want to grow and are looking for reinforcement for our team in Bovenden!

With wealth of ideas and passion, our employees develop and build thermal plants according to individual customer requirements. 

As a medium-sized technology company founded in Göttingen with the German locations Bovenden and Böblingen, we offer a wide range of tasks in a dynamic environment.

Aim of the work:

When strip steels are quenched and tempered, they are subjected to heat treatment. In order for the transport equipment to work effectively and furnace internals to remain in use longer, cleaning of the strip steels is necessary. Cleaning removes preservatives from the strip steel and prevents smearing and carburizing effects. The cleaning is carried out with the aid of a strip cleaning system.

For this purpose, a test rig for wet cleaning has been developed and set up in a previous student project.

In this thesis, basic research is to be carried out on the effects of various cleaning agents on oils during the quenching and tempering process. Furthermore, different cleaning agents are to be considered for their possible use with regard to cleaning and subsequent corrosion of the strip steels. On the basis of these results, a test setup is to be planned and implemented with the existing test rig in order to carry out practical tests with different test materials.

Structure of the work packages

  • Familiarization with the subject area of quenching and tempering of strip steels
  • Research on the cleaning of metals (cleaning agents, disposal, environmental influences)
  • Research on corrosion due to residues of the oils and cleaning agents used
  • Expansion and operation of a test rig for cleaning test materials with various cleaning agents
  • Analyzing the residues before and after quenching and tempering
  • Evaluation of the results
  • Presentation of the results in an appropriate form

The assignment can be adapted for the scope of a student research project if necessary.

Structure of the work packages

  • Student (m/f/d) majoring in chemical engineering, process engineering, mechanical engineering, materials science, or related field of study
  • Structured and independent way of working
  • Good knowledge in the field of chemical influences on metallic materials
  • Good knowledge in the field of chemical degreasing
  • Good MS Office skills
  • Good command of English
  • Good communication and coordination skills

Further information

  • Location: Bovenden
  • Start: from 01.03.2022
  • Duration: at least 3 months, ideally 6 months
