A Nicrofer 3718 sinter belt used in a sinter furnace operated at 965 deg C (1770 deg F) for the curing of nickel briquettes stretched and fractured after only 6 months in service. Macrofractographic, metallographic, and chemical analyses of several broken links of the woven belt and an unused section of new wire showed that the fracture resulted from sulfur attack and overheating during service. It was recommended that the sinter belt material be changed to Nicrofer 3220-H (alloy 800H).
