Dr. Shankar Venkataraman is the Business Development Manager at Schmidt + Clemens Group (Lindlar, Germany).
He is a metallurgist and holds a doctorate from the University of Technology in Dresden, Germany. He has experience in the application engineering of heat resistant and corrosion resistant high alloy castings for various industrial applications and has authored more than 30 publications. Dr. Shankar Venkataraman is also a steering committee member with Stainless Steel World, Duplex World global conferences and is a professional member of NACE and AISTECH.
The high stresses and hot corrosive gas environment faced by rolls used in roller hearth furnaces for reheating and heat treatment purposes in the steel and stainless industry necessitate high elevated strength and oxidation resistance as principal functional requirements.
Tailor made centrifugally cast heat resistant alloys based on proper understanding of solidification, metallurgy and intelligent alloying of elements enable realization of increased strength and oxidation resistance compared to conventional alloys.
Using advanced high performance alloys, operators and designers of such furnaces can realize substantial process benefits like for e.g. the ability to realize longer component life, higher process temperatures and increased reliability along with energy savings and thereby contribute towards a more sustainable high temperature process operation.
