Most titanium and titanium alloy ingot is melted twice using the VAR process. The procedure is known as the double consumable-electrode vacuum-arc remelting process. Double melting is considered necessary for all applications to ensure an acceptable degree of homogeneity in the resulting product. For certain critical applications, a third, or “triple,” melting step was specified at times, especially after the middle of the 1960s when defects were found in rotor-grade titanium alloys produced by double melting.
The actual practice varies with alloy producer and user. 11 shows some microstructures formed from Ti-6Al-4V alloy as a function of solution temperature and cooling rate. To place the alloy in a soft, relatively machinable condition, the alloy is heated to about 730 °C (1346 °F) in the lower range of the alpha-plus-beta region, held for 4 hours, then furnace cooled to 25 °C (77 °F). This treatment, called mill annealing, produces a microstructure of globular crystals of beta in an alpha matrix.
