Q. I am nitriding H13 tool steel by salt bath (liquid) nitriding. I am using titanium crucible for this process, but it is very expensive. What kind of alloy can I use for a long time? Is 316 Ti stainless steel usable?

A. Type 310 would be much better than 316Ti. That's if you are having your crucibles fabricated. If you are having them made as castings, HK30 would be a good alloy to specify (it is a casting version of the wrought type 310).
