SCM415 steel for the control valve undergoes wear because of continuous movement between the valve and valve case. The wear of the valve interrupts the performance of the valve, and decreases the service life. In this study, wear characteristics of the as-received and carburized SCM415 steels are evaluated. The wear tests are conducted for various temperatures and loads using a reciprocating wear tester. From these results, wear loss, specific wear rate, and coefficient of friction are analyzed. The wear mechanism was analyzed by SEM. The interaction effects between loads and temperatures on wear loss are determined for analysis of variance using MINITAB.
