Description

  The present invention relates to a welded steel pipe for high-strength line pipes excellent in low-temperature toughness suitable for line pipes for crude oil and natural gas transportation.

  As a steel pipe for a line pipe used for a main line of a pipeline important as a long-distance transportation method for crude oil, natural gas, etc., a steel pipe for a line pipe having high strength and toughness has been proposed (for example, Patent Document 1). To date, steel pipes for line pipes up to the American Petroleum Institute (API) standard X80 (tensile strength of 620 MPa or more) have been put into practical use, but pipelines that make the transportation of crude oil and natural gas more efficient. With the study of increasing the internal pressure of steel, there is a demand for further strengthening and thickening of steel pipes for high-strength line pipes of X80 or higher.

  For high strength, for example, when an X120 class line pipe having a tensile strength of 900 MPa or more is used, the internal pressure, that is, the pressure of crude oil or natural gas can be approximately double that of an X65 class line pipe. About twice as much crude oil or natural gas can be transported. In addition, if the strength of the line pipe is increased to improve the internal pressure resistance, it is possible to reduce material costs, transportation costs, and local welding costs compared to increasing the wall thickness. Costs can be saved significantly.

  Also, since pipelines are often laid in cold regions, it is essential to have excellent low temperature toughness. Furthermore, since the ends of the line pipes are joined at the time of construction, excellent on-site weldability is also required. A steel pipe for X120 grade line pipe that satisfies such requirements and has higher strength than the steel pipe for line pipe proposed in Patent Document 1 has been proposed (for example, Patent Document 2). This is a steel pipe for a high-strength line pipe whose microstructure is mainly a mixed structure of bainite and martensite. Moreover, for thickening, a method of manufacturing a thick steel plate with good strength and toughness using a metal structure as fine bainite by controlled rolling and controlled cooling has been proposed (for example, Patent Documents 3 to 5). .

  A steel pipe for a line pipe having a high strength and a large thickness is manufactured by forming a thick steel sheet into a tubular shape by a UO process, butting ends together and seam welding. When toughness and productivity are required like a steel pipe for high-strength line pipes, submerged arc welding from the inner surface and the outer surface is suitable for seam welding. Thus, when steel materials are welded multiple times, the weld heat affected zone (referred to as Heat Affected Zone, HAZ) that has become coarse due to the heat input of the preceding welding is reheated by the heat input of the subsequent welding, and the toughness There is a problem that decreases.

  As a technique for improving the low-temperature toughness of the HAZ of the steel pipe for high-strength line pipe, a method of refining the HAZ structure using intragranular transformation has been proposed (for example, Patent Documents 6 to 8). The method proposed in Patent Document 6 generates acicular ferrite using an oxide as a nucleus, and the methods proposed in Patent Documents 7 and 8 are based on a composite inclusion of oxide and sulfide as a nucleus. The inner bainite is generated.

  Many of these conventional steel pipes for high-strength linepipes have improved hardenability, contain a large amount of Mo effective for high strength, and obtain a bainite-based metal structure to improve toughness. Recently, a reduction in the content of Mo, which is an expensive element, has been demanded. However, when Mo is reduced, the hardenability is likely to be lowered, and it becomes difficult to obtain intragranular bainite. Therefore, it is difficult to ensure the low temperature toughness of HAZ. Further, the thickness of the conventional high-strength line pipe is less than 25 mm at most, and a thick line pipe of 25 mm or more or 30 mm or more has not been required.

Japanese Patent Laid-Open No. 62-4826 JP 2004-52104 A JP 2000-256777 A JP 2004-76101 A JP 2004-143509 A Japanese Patent Laid-Open No. 08-325635 JP 2001-355039 A JP 2003-138340 A

  The present invention provides a welded steel pipe for a high-strength line pipe that can secure the low-temperature toughness of HAZ, is inexpensive, and has excellent low-temperature toughness even if the Mo content is limited, and a method for producing the same.

  In addition, the inventors made a prototype of a thick steel plate for high-strength line pipes with a thickness of 25 mm or more and X80 or more. As a result, it was found that the problems caused by the increase in the thickness of the steel sheet were much more serious than expected. In particular, in the central portion of the plate thickness, the reduction by controlled rolling and the cooling rate by controlled cooling become insufficient, and the toughness is significantly reduced compared to the surface layer portion of the steel plate. Furthermore, as a result of investigating the metal structure in the central part of the plate thickness of the steel plate, it was found that it is extremely difficult to make the central part of the plate thickness into a fine bainite structure in the thick steel plate for high-strength line pipe.

  The present invention solves such problems that could not be predicted from the prior art, and in particular, even if the wall thickness is 25 mm or more, and even 30 mm or more, it is possible to limit the Mo content, The present invention provides a welded steel pipe for a high-strength line pipe that is inexpensive, thick, and has excellent low-temperature toughness, and a method for producing the same.

  The present invention reduces C and Al, contains an appropriate amount of Ti to promote intragranular transformation, and further adds an appropriate amount of Mn to improve hardenability, which is a carbon equivalent Ceq and a weldability index. Even if the cracking susceptibility index Pcm, which is an index of the property, is controlled within an optimal range and the Mo content is limited, the base material and HAZ are made into a fine metal structure mainly composed of bainite, and further, Ti oxide It is a welded steel pipe for high-strength linepipe that can be thickened and that has improved the low-temperature toughness of HAZ by making use of intragranular bainite generated as nuclei, especially by reducing the effective crystal grain size of HAZ.

  According to the present invention, it is possible to ensure the low temperature toughness of the HAZ of the steel pipe for line pipes even if the content of Mo is reduced, and to provide an inexpensive, high strength line pipe welded steel pipe for low-temperature toughness and a method for producing the same. Furthermore, according to the present invention, it becomes possible to ensure the low temperature toughness of the high-strength linepipe steel pipe having a wall thickness of 25 mm or more, further 30 mm or more. Is remarkable.

  The present invention is based on a steel material in which the content of C is reduced and the toughness is improved as a low-temperature transformation structure mainly composed of bainite, and the hardenability index Ceq and welding are used instead of limiting the Mo content. In order to improve the low temperature toughness, the property index Pcm is within the optimum range, Mn is added to improve hardenability, Al is reduced, intragranular bainite is utilized, and in particular, the effective crystal grain size of HAZ is refined. This is a welded steel pipe. That is, the present invention reduces the amount of Al, controls the amount of oxygen, adds an appropriate amount of Ti, disperses fine inclusions that act extremely effectively as nuclei for intragranular transformation, The greatest feature is that the effective crystal grain size of the base steel plate is refined by using it as a production nucleus. Hereinafter, the base steel plate is also simply referred to as a steel plate, and the welded steel pipe is also simply referred to as a steel pipe.

  The intragranular bainite of HAZ is obtained by transforming intragranular ferrite generated by intragranular transformation at a high temperature at the time of cooling using the above-described fine inclusions as production nuclei. Therefore, setting the hardenability index Ceq and the weldability index Pcm to the optimum ranges is extremely effective for generating intragranular bainite in the HAZ of a steel pipe in which the addition amount of Mo is limited as in the present invention. Due to the formation of intragranular bainite, the low temperature toughness of the HAZ is significantly improved. Intragranular bainite may also contribute to the suppression of HAZ softening.

  The mechanism of formation of intragranular bainite is considered as follows. The cation vacancy-type oxide can take in a large amount of Mn ions, and MnS is likely to be complexly precipitated in the oxide. Therefore, a Mn-depleted layer is generated around the oxide and sulfide. This Mn-deficient layer acts as a transformation nucleus when the steel is heated to a high temperature such that the metal structure becomes an austenite phase, and usually petal-like intragranular ferrite is generated. This intragranular ferrite has a high degree of supercooling when the cooling rate is high or when the hardenability is high, so it transforms into bainite during cooling and becomes intragranular bainite.

  A typical example of the cation vacancy-type oxide is a fine oxide containing Ti as a main component, and petals-like intragranular bainite is generated using this as a nucleus. In addition, fine sulfides mainly composed of Mn may be combined and precipitated in the fine oxides mainly composed of Ti. Depending on the component composition of the steel, the oxide contains one or more of Al, Si, Mn, Cr, Mg, and Ca, and the sulfide contains one or more of Ca, Cu, and Mg. May be included. The size of the inclusions serving as the nuclei of intragranular bainite can be measured by a transmission electron microscope (referred to as TEM), and the diameter is preferably in the range of 0.01 to 5 μm.

  When a large amount of intragranular bainite is generated in the HAZ, a martensite / austenite hybrid (called Martensite-Austenite Constituent, MA) that becomes the starting point of fracture becomes finer, and the low-temperature toughness is greatly improved. When the amount of C is suppressed to 0.05% or less and fine inclusions are dispersed, intragranular bainite is generated, the structure within the grain is subdivided, and the Charpy fracture surface unit, that is, the effective crystal grain size is extremely small. Become. Furthermore, since intragranular bainite is harder than intragranular ferrite, the formation of intragranular bainite may suppress the softening of HAZ.

  As shown schematically in FIG. 1, in the HAZ of the central part of the welded steel pipe for high-strength line pipes (in the vicinity of the 1/2 part of the thickness and referred to as 1 / 2t part) Coarse MA present along the prior austenite grain boundaries of the thermal HAZ may become the starting point of fracture and impair toughness. The reheat HAZ is a portion where the weld metal and the HAZ in the vicinity of the melting line of the preceding welding are reheated by subsequent welding. Normally, HAZ is a part within 10 mm from the melting line, although it varies somewhat depending on the heat input during welding. For example, when a notch is provided at a position of 1 mm or 2 mm from the melting line, the Charpy absorbed energy at −40 ° C. is , Sometimes less than 50J.

  As a result of intensive studies to satisfy the low temperature toughness of the HAZ of the base steel plate and the welded steel pipe, the present inventors have found the following. Fine oxides, composite oxides, and composite sulfides mainly composed of Ti are effective for generating intragranular bainite of HAZ, and also effective for reducing the effective crystal grain size of the base steel sheet. . Thereby, the effective crystal grain size of HAZ can be 150 μm or less, and the effective crystal grain size of the base steel plate can be 20 μm or less.

  Further, when the Mo content is limited to less than 0.10%, the carbon equivalent Ceq, which is an index of hardenability, is 0.30 to 0.53, and the crack sensitivity index Pcm, which is an index of weldability, is 0.10. When 0.20, the area ratio of polygonal ferrite of the base steel sheet is 30% or less, the area ratio of bainite is 70% or more, and the intragranular transformation structure of HAZ becomes intragranular bainite. Thereby, the tensile strength of the welded joint which performed the seam welding part will be 600 Mpa or more.

  In particular, when the wall thickness is 25 mm or more, and further 30 mm or more, the toughness of the 1/2 t part of the base steel sheet may be reduced. Sulfide has made it possible to refine the effective crystal grain size of the base steel sheet. The reason for this is considered as follows. First, when reduction in the non-recrystallization temperature range is secured, transformation from normal grain boundaries is promoted, so it is difficult to transform intragranularly from oxides, complex oxides, and complex sulfides. . This is considered to be because when the crystal grain size is reduced by securing the reduction, the growth rate of bainite nucleated from the grain boundary becomes too high as compared with the intragranular transformation. That is, it is considered that the transformation from the grain boundary is completed before the intragranular transformation is generated.

  On the other hand, when the reduction ratio in the non-recrystallization temperature region is insufficient, the crystal grain size becomes coarse, particularly at the center of the plate thickness, so that the growth of bainite nucleated from the grain boundary is also slowed. Therefore, it is considered that the effective crystal grain size is refined in the grains by intragranular transformation from oxides, composite oxides, and composite sulfides mainly composed of Ti. Further, it is considered that the fine oxide acts as pinning particles and suppresses the growth of crystal grains, which is also effective for refining the effective crystal grain size of the base steel plate.

  According to the present invention, in particular, even if the wall thickness is 25 mm or more, the effective crystal grain size of the base steel plate can be made 20 μm or less. Furthermore, by setting the area ratio of polygonal ferrite to 30% or less and the area ratio of bainite to 70% or more, −40 ° C. of a test piece collected from the vicinity of the surface layer, that is, from about 2 to 12 mm from the surface of the steel material. The Charpy absorbed energy at 200 is 200 J or more, and the Charpy absorbed energy when sampled from the ½t portion, that is, from the approximate center of the wall thickness, can be 100 J or more.

In the present invention, in order to produce fine oxides, composite oxides, and composite sulfides mainly composed of Ti, it is extremely important to control the amount of oxygen in the steelmaking process. In particular, when adjusting the component composition of steel, it is necessary to add Si and Mn so that the content is in the above-described range and perform weak deoxidation, and then add Ti. The oxygen concentration when adding Ti is preferably 0.001 to 0.003%. As a result, Ti oxide having a particle diameter of 0.01 to 10 μm and a number per area of 1 μm 2 of 10 to 1000 / mm 2 , specifically, Ti 2 O 3 can be dispersed. Thereby, the production | generation of an intragranular transformation is accelerated | stimulated and the effective crystal grain diameter of HAZ of a base material steel plate and a welded steel pipe refines | miniaturizes.

  When the steel composition obtained by adjusting the component composition and casting by such a steelmaking process is hot-rolled, the rolling ratio from 900 ° C. to the end of rolling is 2.5 or more, preferably 3.0 or more. By doing so, it is possible to make the effective crystal grain size of the base steel plate 20 μm or less.

  The effective particle size is a value obtained by converting the area of a portion surrounded by a boundary having a crystal orientation difference of 15 ° or more into an equivalent circle diameter using EBSP. Polygonal ferrite is observed in an optical microscope structure as a white massive structure that does not contain coarse precipitates such as coarse cementite and MA in the grains. In the optical microstructure of the base steel sheet, martensite, retained austenite, and MA may be included as the remainder of polygonal ferrite and bainite.

  In the present invention, bainite is defined as a structure in which carbides are precipitated between laths or massive ferrites or a structure in which carbides are precipitated in the laths. Further, martensite is a structure in which carbides are not precipitated between laths or within laths. Residual austenite is austenite in which austenite generated at a high temperature remains in a base steel plate or a welded steel pipe.

  Further, the heat treatment of the welded portion decomposes the coarse MA generated along the HAZ prior austenite grain boundaries into fine cementite, thereby improving the low temperature toughness. Thereby, the toughness at the meeting part of the 1/2 t part or the meeting part + 1 mm at a lower temperature is improved. For example, when the welded part is heated to a temperature of 300 to 500 ° C., the V-notch Charpy at a low temperature of −40 ° C. The absorbed energy can be 50 J or more. Therefore, when used at an extremely low temperature of −40 ° C. or lower, it is preferable to further heat-treat the structure in which the intragranular bainite is formed to obtain a mixed structure of intragranular bainite and cementite.

  Hereinafter, the reasons for limitation of the base steel sheet according to the present invention will be described. Since HAZ is a heat-affected zone that does not melt during welding, the component of HAZ is the same as that of the base material.

  C: C is an element that improves the strength of steel. However, in the present invention, the content of C is limited, a metal structure mainly composed of bainite is obtained, and both high strength and high toughness are achieved. . If the C content is less than 0.030%, the strength is insufficient, and if it exceeds 0.080%, the toughness decreases. Therefore, in the present invention, the optimum amount of C is set to a range of 0.030 to 0.080%.

  Si: Si is an important deoxidizing element in the present invention, and in order to obtain an effect, it is necessary to contain 0.01% or more of Si in the steel. On the other hand, if the Si content exceeds 0.50%, the toughness of the HAZ decreases, so the upper limit is made 0.50%.

  Mn: Mn is an element that is used as a deoxidizer, is necessary for ensuring the strength and toughness of the base steel sheet, and further produces sulfides such as MnS that are effective as nuclei for intragranular transformation. It is extremely important in the invention. In order to obtain these effects, it is necessary to contain 0.50% of Mn. However, if the Mn content exceeds 2.00%, the toughness of the HAZ is impaired. Therefore, the content range of Mn is set to 0.50 to 2.00%. In addition, since Mn is an inexpensive element, in order to ensure hardenability, it is preferable to contain 1.00% or more, and an optimal minimum is 1.50% or more.

  P: P is an impurity, and if it contains more than 0.050%, the toughness of the base steel sheet is significantly reduced. Therefore, the upper limit of the P content is 0.050%. In order to improve the toughness of the HAZ, the P content is preferably set to 0.010% or less.

  S: S is an important element in the present invention that produces sulfides such as MnS that are effective as nuclei for intragranular transformation. If the S content is less than 0.0001%, the amount of sulfide produced is reduced and no intragranular transformation occurs, so it is necessary to make it 0.0001% or more. On the other hand, if more than 0.0050% of S is contained in the base steel plate, coarse sulfides are generated and the toughness is lowered, so the upper limit of the amount of S is made 0.0050% or less. In order to improve the toughness of the HAZ, it is preferable that the upper limit of the S amount is 0.0030% or less.

  Al: Al is a deoxidizer, but in the present invention, in order to finely disperse the oxide of Ti, it is extremely important to limit the upper limit of the Al amount to 0.020% or less. In order to promote the formation of intragranular transformation, the Al content is preferably 0.010% or less. A more preferred upper limit is 0.008% or less.

  Ti: Ti is an extremely important element in the present invention because it finely disperses Ti oxides that effectively act as nuclei for intragranular transformation. However, if Ti is contained excessively, carbonitrides are produced and the toughness is impaired. Therefore, in the present invention, the Ti content needs to be 0.003 to 0.030%. Moreover, since Ti is a strong deoxidizing agent, if the amount of oxygen when adding Ti is large, a coarse oxide is generated. Therefore, at the time of steelmaking, it is necessary to deoxidize with Si and Mn in advance to reduce the amount of oxygen. When the Ti oxide is coarsened, intragranular transformation is less likely to occur, and the effect of pinning the grain boundary is reduced, so that the effective crystal grain size of the HAZ of the base steel plate and the welded steel pipe may become coarse.

  Mo: Mo is a useful element that improves hardenability, promotes the formation of intragranular bainite into HAZ, and improves strength by forming carbonitrides, but 0.10% or more Addition increases the alloy cost. Therefore, in the present invention, the content of expensive Mo is limited to less than 0.10%. In the welded steel pipe of the present invention, the carbon equivalent Ceq, which is an index of hardenability, and the crack sensitivity index Pcm, which is an index of weldability, are controlled within an optimal range so that hardenability can be ensured even when the Mo content is reduced. doing.

  O: Oxygen is an element inevitably contained in the steel, but in the present invention, the amount of O needs to be limited in order to produce an oxide containing Ti. The amount of oxygen remaining in the steel at the time of casting, that is, the amount of O in the base steel plate needs to be 0.0001 to 0.0080%. This is because if the amount of O is less than 0.0001%, the number of oxides is not sufficient, and if it exceeds 0.0080%, coarse oxides increase and the toughness of the base material and the HAZ is impaired. Further, when the oxide mainly composed of Ti becomes coarse due to an increase in the amount of oxygen, the effective crystal grain size of the HAZ of the base steel plate and the welded steel pipe may become coarse.

  Furthermore, you may add 1 type (s) or 2 or more types among Cu, Ni, Cr, V, Nb, Zr, Ta as an element which improves an intensity | strength and toughness. In addition, these elements can be regarded as impurities because their content is less than the preferred lower limit because they do not have a particularly adverse effect.

  Cu, Ni: Cu and Ni are effective elements that increase the strength without deteriorating the toughness. In order to obtain the effect, the lower limit of the Cu content and the Ni content is preferably 0.05% or more. . On the other hand, the upper limit of the amount of Cu is preferably set to 1.00% in order to suppress the occurrence of cracks during heating of the steel slab and during welding. The upper limit of the amount of Ni is preferably set to 1.00% because the weldability is impaired when it is excessively contained. Note that Cu and Ni are preferably combined and contained in order to suppress generation of surface defects.

  Cr, V, Nb, Zr, Ta: Cr, V, Nb, Zr, Ta are elements that generate carbides and nitrides and improve the strength of steel by precipitation strengthening, and contain one or more. You may let them. In order to increase the strength effectively, the lower limit of Cr amount is 0.02%, the lower limit of V amount is 0.010%, the lower limit of Nb amount is 0.001%, the lower limit of Zr amount and Ta amount are Both are preferably 0.0001%. On the other hand, when Cr is added excessively, the strength increases due to the improvement of hardenability and the toughness may be impaired. Therefore, the upper limit of Cr content is preferably 1.50%. In addition, excessive addition of V, Nb, Zr, and Ta may coarsen carbides and nitrides and impair toughness. Therefore, the upper limit of V amount is 0.100% and the upper limit of Nb amount is 0.200%. It is preferable that the upper limit of Zr amount and Ta is 0.0500%.

  Furthermore, in order to control the form of inclusions and improve toughness, one or more of Mg, Ca, REM, Y, Hf, Re, and W may be added. In addition, these elements can be regarded as impurities because their content is less than the preferred lower limit, because they do not have a particularly adverse effect.

  Mg: Mg is an element that exerts an effect on oxide miniaturization and sulfide morphology control. In particular, fine Mg oxide acts as a nucleus for intragranular transformation, and 0.0001% or more is preferably added in order to obtain an effect of suppressing the coarsening of the particle size as pinning particles. On the other hand, if an amount of Mg exceeding 0.0100% is added, a coarse oxide is generated, which may reduce the toughness of the HAZ of the base steel plate and the welded steel pipe. % Is preferable.

  Ca, REM: Ca and REM are useful for controlling the form of sulfides, suppress the generation of MnS that forms granulated materials and extends in the rolling direction, and provides characteristics in the thickness direction of the base steel sheet, particularly lamellar resistance. It is an element that improves tear properties. In order to obtain this effect, it is preferable that both the lower limits of the Ca content and the REM content be 0.0001% or more. On the other hand, when the upper limit of the Ca content and the REM content exceeds 0.0050%, the oxide increases, the fine Ti-containing oxide decreases, and the formation of intragranular transformation may be inhibited. It is preferable to set it to 0050% or less.

  Y, Hf, Re, W: Y, Hf, W, and Re are also elements that exhibit the same effect as Ca and REM, and if added excessively, the formation of intragranular transformation may be inhibited. Therefore, the preferable ranges of the Y amount, the Hf amount, and the Re amount are each 0.0001 to 0.0050%, and the preferable range of the W amount is 0.01 to 0.50%.

  Furthermore, in the present invention, the HAZ hardenability of the base steel plate and the welded steel pipe is secured, the area ratio of bainite of the base steel plate is set to 80% or more, and intragranular bainite is generated in the HAZ. , Ni, Cu, Cr, Mo, V The carbon equivalent Ceq of the following (formula 1) calculated from the content [% by mass] is 0.40 to 0.53.

Ceq = C + Mn / 6 + (Ni + Cu) / 15 + (Cr + Mo + V) / 5
... (Formula 1)
Further, in order to ensure the low temperature toughness of the HAZ of the base steel plate and the welded steel pipe, the following (calculated from the content [mass%] of C, Si, Mn, Cu, Cr, Ni, Mo, V, B is shown below ( The cracking sensitivity index Pcm of the formula 2) is set to 0.16 to 0.21.

Pcm = C + Si / 30 + (Mn + Cu + Cr) / 20 + Ni / 60
+ Mo / 15 + V / 10 + 5B (Formula 2)
In addition, in the above (formula 1) and (formula 2), it is 0 because Ni, Cu, Cr, and V, which are selectively contained elements, are impurities when they are less than the preferred lower limit described above. calculate.

  The metal structure of the base steel sheet to be a welded steel pipe has a good balance between strength and toughness when the area ratio of bainite is 70% or more and the area ratio of polygonal ferrite is 30% or less. In addition, if the effective crystal grain size is set to 20 μm or less due to the generation of an oxide mainly composed of Ti, the toughness of the base steel sheet becomes good. Polygonal ferrite is also effective in reducing the effective crystal grain size of the base steel sheet, and the area ratio is preferably 3% or more. The thickness of the base steel plate is preferably 25 mm or more, and the tensile strength in the direction corresponding to the circumferential direction of the steel pipe is preferably 600 MPa or more. This is to prevent breakage due to internal pressure when used as a line pipe. In addition, when it is necessary to raise an internal pressure, it is preferable that the thickness of a base material steel plate shall be 30 mm or more. On the other hand, the thickness of the base steel plate is preferably 40 mm or less, and the tensile strength in the direction corresponding to the circumferential direction of the steel pipe is preferably 800 MPa or less. This is because the load at the time of forming the base steel sheet in the UO process increases due to the increase in thickness and the increase in tensile strength. Normally, the direction corresponding to the circumferential direction of the steel pipe is the sheet width direction of the base steel plate.

Next, a manufacturing method will be described.
After melting the steel in the steel making process described above, it is cast into a steel slab. Casting may be performed by a conventional method, but continuous casting is preferable from the viewpoint of productivity. The billet is heated for hot rolling.

  The heating temperature of the hot rolling is 1000 ° C. or higher. This is because hot rolling is performed at a temperature at which the steel structure becomes an austenite single phase, that is, an austenite region, and the crystal grain size of the base steel sheet is made fine. Although the upper limit is not specified, the reheating temperature is preferably 1250 ° C. or lower in order to suppress the coarsening of the effective crystal grain size.

  Since hot rolling may be started immediately after extraction from the heating furnace, the starting temperature of hot rolling is not particularly specified. In order to refine the effective crystal grain size of the base steel plate, it is preferable that the rolling ratio in the recrystallization region exceeding 900 ° C. is 2.0 or more. The reduction ratio in the recrystallization region is the ratio between the thickness of the steel slab and the thickness at 900 ° C.

  Next, if the reduction ratio in the non-recrystallized region at 900 ° C. or less is set to 2.5 or more, the effective crystal grain size of the base steel sheet becomes 20 μm or less after water cooling. In order to further refine the effective crystal grain size of the base steel plate, it is preferable that the rolling ratio in an unrecrystallized region at 900 ° C. or lower is 3.0 or more. In the present invention, the reduction ratio of non-recrystallization zone rolling is a ratio obtained by dividing the plate thickness at 900 ° C. by the plate thickness after the end of rolling. Moreover, although the upper limit of the reduction ratio in the non-recrystallized region and the recrystallized region is not defined, it is usually 12.0 or less considering the plate thickness of the steel slab before rolling and the plate thickness of the steel plate after rolling.

The rolling end temperature is preferably higher than the temperature at which the steel structure becomes an austenite single phase. That is, the rolling end temperature is preferably Ar 3 or higher, but a small amount of polygonal ferrite may be generated during rolling, and may be Ar 3 -50 ° C. or higher. Ac 3 and Ar 3 can be calculated by the contents (mass%) of C, Si, Mn, P, Cr, Mo, W, Ni, Cu, Al, V, and Ti.

Ac 3 = 910−203√C−15.2Ni + 44.7Si + 104V + 31.5Mo
+ 13.1W-30Mn-11Cr-20Cu + 700P + 400Al
+ 400Ti
Ar 3 = 910-310C-55Ni-80Mo-80Mn-15Cr-20Cu
Furthermore, although water cooling is implemented after completion | finish of rolling, if a water cooling stop temperature shall be 600 degrees C or less, the metal structure mentioned above will be obtained and the toughness of a base material steel plate will become favorable. The lower limit of the water cooling stop temperature is not specified, and the water cooling may be performed to room temperature. However, in consideration of productivity and hydrogen defects, the temperature is preferably set to 150 ° C. or higher.

  After forming the base steel plate into a tubular shape, when the butt portion is arc welded to form a welded steel pipe, the forming is preferably a UOE process in which the base steel plate is C-pressed, U-pressed, and O-pressed.

  For arc welding, it is preferable to adopt submerged arc welding from the viewpoint of the toughness and productivity of the weld metal. In particular, when manufacturing a welded steel pipe having a wall thickness of 25 to 40 mm, the heat input of submerged arc welding from the inner and outer surfaces is preferably set to 4.0 to 10.0 kJ / mm. If the heat input is within this range, in the welded steel pipe of the present invention having the above-described component composition, intragranular bainite is generated in the HAZ, the HAZ effective crystal grain size is 150 μm or less, and excellent low temperature toughness is obtained.

  In particular, when submerged arc welding is performed one pass at a time from the inner and outer surfaces, if the heat input is less than 4.0 kJ / mm, the weld metal of the tack welding performed prior to the main welding between the inner surface metal and the outer surface metal This is because may remain. Moreover, if the heat input of submerged arc welding is set to 10.0 kJ / mm or less, the old austenite grain size of HAZ can be reduced to 500 μm or less even in a welded steel pipe having a thickness of 25 to 40 mm, and toughness It is effective for improving The heat input when welding from the inner surface and the heat input when welding from the outer surface do not have to be the same, and there may be a slight difference in heat input.

  When the heat input of submerged arc welding from the inner and outer surfaces is set to 4.0 to 10.0 kJ / mm, when the thickness of the welded steel pipe is 25 to 40 mm, cooling from 800 ° C. to 500 ° C. during cooling of the HAZ The speed is 2-15 ° C./s. Even with such a slower cooling rate than usual, in the welded steel pipe of the present invention having the above-described component composition, intragranular bainite is generated in the HAZ, the effective crystal grain size of the HAZ is 150 μm or less, and excellent low temperature toughness is obtained. It is done.

  Moreover, it is preferable to use the following components for the wire used for welding in order to make the component composition of a weld metal into the range mentioned later in consideration of the dilution of the component by a base material steel plate. That is, in mass%, C: 0.010 to 0.120%, Si: 0.05 to 0.50%, Mn: 1.0 to 2.5%, Ni: 2.0 to 8.5% In addition, the composition of Al is 0.100% or less, Ti is 0.050% or less, and the balance is composed of Fe and inevitable impurities. B: 0.0001 to 0.0050% may be included, and one or more of Cr, Mo, and V may be contained in a range of Cr + Mo + V: 1.0 to 5.0%.

  Furthermore, the component composition of the weld metal will be described.

  C is an element that is extremely effective for improving the strength, and preferably contains 0.010% or more. However, if the amount of C is too large, cold cracking is likely to occur, and in particular, the HAZ of the so-called T-cross portion where the on-site welded portion and the seam weld intersect may harden and impair toughness. Therefore, it is preferable that the upper limit of the C amount is 0.100%. In order to improve the toughness of the weld metal, the upper limit is more preferably 0.050% or less.

  Si is preferably contained in an amount of 0.01% or more in order to prevent the occurrence of blow holes that are welding defects. On the other hand, if it is excessively contained, the low temperature toughness is remarkably deteriorated, so the upper limit is preferably made 0.50% or less. In particular, when performing welding a plurality of times, the low temperature toughness of the reheat weld metal may deteriorate, so the upper limit is more preferably set to 0.40% or less.

  Mn is an element effective for ensuring a good balance between strength and toughness, and the lower limit is preferably 1.0% or more. However, when Mn is contained in a large amount, segregation is promoted and not only the low-temperature toughness is deteriorated, but also the production of a welding wire used for welding becomes difficult. Therefore, the upper limit is preferably made 2.0% or less.

  P and S are impurities, and it is preferable to set these upper limits to 0.020% and 0.010% in order to reduce the low temperature toughness of the weld metal and reduce low temperature cracking susceptibility. From the viewpoint of low temperature toughness, a more preferable upper limit of P is 0.010%.

  Al is an element that is added to improve the refining and solidification during the production of the welding wire, and suppresses the coarsening of the grain size of the weld metal by utilizing a fine Ti-based oxide. Therefore, it is preferable to contain 0.001% or more of Al. However, since Al is an element that promotes the formation of MA, the preferable upper limit of the content is 0.100% or less.

  Ti is an element that generates a fine oxide serving as a nucleus for intragranular transformation and contributes to the refinement of the grain size of the weld metal, and is preferably contained in an amount of 0.003% or more. On the other hand, if Ti is contained in a large amount, a large amount of Ti carbide is generated and the low-temperature toughness may be deteriorated, so the upper limit is preferably made 0.050% or less.

  O is an impurity, and the amount of oxygen finally remaining in the weld metal is often 0.0001% or more. However, if the amount of O remains over 0.0500%, coarse oxides increase, and the toughness of the weld metal may decrease, so the upper limit is preferably made 0.0500% or less. .

  It is preferable that the weld metal further contains Ni, Cr, Mo, and V selectively.

  Ni is an element that enhances hardenability and ensures strength, and further improves low-temperature toughness, and it is preferable to contain 0.2% or more. On the other hand, if the Ni content is too high, hot cracking may occur, so the upper limit was made 3.2% or less.

  Cr, Mo, and V are all elements that enhance the hardenability, and for the high strength of the weld metal, one or more of these may be contained in a total of 0.2% or more. On the other hand, if the total of one or more of Cr, Mo and V exceeds 2.5%, the low temperature toughness may deteriorate, so the upper limit is preferably made 2.5% or less.

  The weld metal may further contain B.

  B is an element that increases the hardenability of the weld metal, and in order to increase the strength, it is preferable to contain 0.0001% or more. On the other hand, if the B content exceeds 0.0050%, the toughness may be impaired, so the upper limit is preferably made 0.0050% or less.

  For weld metal, elements other than those described above by dilution from the base material, such as Cu, Nb, Zr, Ta, Mg, Ca, REM, Y, Hf, Re, W, etc., which are selectively added to the base material And may contain elements such as Zr, Nb, and Mg, which are added as necessary to improve the refining and solidification of the welding wire. These are impurities inevitably contained.

  After seam welding, the pipe may be expanded in order to improve the roundness of the steel pipe. When the roundness of the steel pipe is increased by expanding the pipe, it is necessary to deform the plastic pipe to the plastic region. Therefore, the expansion ratio is preferably set to 0.7% or more. The expansion ratio is a percentage obtained by grading the difference between the outer peripheral length of the steel pipe after the expansion and the outer peripheral length of the steel pipe before the expansion by the outer peripheral length of the steel pipe before the expansion. If the expansion ratio exceeds 2%, the toughness may be lowered due to plastic deformation of both the base metal and the welded portion. Therefore, the tube expansion rate is preferably 0.7 to 2.0%.

  Moreover, it is preferable to heat-treat the welded portion and HAZ of the steel pipe, and particularly when heated to a temperature of 300 to 500 ° C., the coarse MA formed along the prior austenite grain boundaries decomposes into bainite and fine cementite. And toughness is improved. When the heating temperature is less than 300 ° C., the decomposition of coarse MA is insufficient and the effect of improving toughness may not be sufficient, so the lower limit is preferably set to 300 ° C. or higher. On the other hand, when the welded portion is heated to over 500 ° C., precipitates are generated and the toughness of the weld metal may be deteriorated. Therefore, the upper limit is preferably set to 500 ° C. or less. When MA produced in reheated HAZ decomposes into bainite and cementite, the shape is the same as that of MA as observed by SEM, but it contains fine white precipitates inside and can be distinguished from MA. it can.

  The heat treatment of the welded part and the HAZ may be performed by heating from the outer surface with a burner, or high-frequency heating may be performed. Although the outer surface may be cooled immediately after reaching the heat treatment temperature, it is preferably maintained for 1 to 600 seconds in order to promote the decomposition of MA. However, considering the cost of the equipment and productivity, the holding time is preferably 300 s or less.

  Next, examples of the present invention will be described.

Adjusting the oxygen concentration when adding Ti within the range of 0.001 to 0.003%, melting steel having the chemical components of Table 1 and having a thickness of 240 mm having the chemical components of Table 1 It was a steel piece. These steel slabs were heated to the heating temperature shown in Table 2, and hot-rolled in a recrystallization temperature range of 950 ° C. or higher from 45 to 160 mm. Further, hot rolling was performed at a reduction ratio shown in Table 2 in a non-recrystallized region in a temperature range of 880 ° C. to 800 ° C. to the plate thickness shown in Table 2. The end temperature of hot rolling was Ar 3 −50 ° C. or higher, water cooling was started at 750 ° C., and water cooling was stopped at various temperatures.

  From the obtained steel plate, a V-notch test piece was prepared in which the plate width direction was the longitudinal direction and the notch was provided parallel to the plate thickness direction in accordance with JIS Z 2242. The sampling position of the Charpy test piece was a surface layer portion, that is, a position of about 2 to 12 mm from the surface, and a 1/2 t portion, that is, approximately the center of the wall thickness. The Charpy test was performed at −40 ° C. to determine the absorbed energy. The tensile property was evaluated using an API standard test piece. When a base steel plate having a thickness of 25 to 40 mm was formed into a welded steel pipe, it was confirmed by analysis using a finite element method that the influence of strain introduced by forming at the center of the plate thickness was small.

  The microstructure of the central portion of the base steel sheet was observed with an optical microscope, and the area ratios of polygonal ferrite and bainite were measured to confirm the remaining structure. The effective crystal grain size of the base steel plate was measured by EBSP.

  Next, in consideration of dilution by the base steel plate, by mass, C: 0.010 to 0.120%, Si: 0.05 to 0.5%, Mn: 1.0 to 2.5%, Al : 0.100% or less, Ti: 0.050% or less, and, if necessary, Ni: 2.0 to 8.5%, one or more of Cr, Mo, V Cr + Mo + V: contained in the range of 1.0-5.0%, B: contained 0.0001-0.0050%, the balance is welded using a welding wire having a composition composed of Fe and inevitable impurities Submerged arc welding was performed for each pass from the inner and outer surfaces with a heat input of 4.0 to 10.0 kJ / mm to produce a welded joint. Some of the joints were heat treated at the temperatures shown in Table 2. In addition, the sample was extract | collected from the weld metal and the component analysis was performed. The tensile strength of the weld metal was measured according to JIS Z 3111. Table 3 shows the chemical composition and tensile strength of the weld metal.

  Small pieces were collected from the welded joint, and the effective crystal grain size of HAZ was measured by EBSP. Moreover, the bainite produced in the shape of a petal starting from inclusions was defined as intragranular bainite, and the area ratio was measured. Furthermore, the Charpy absorbed energy of HAZ was measured at −40 ° C. using a V-notch test piece in accordance with JIS Z 2242. The V notch was provided at a position of 1 mm on the base metal side from the melting line, and the measurement was performed at −40 ° C. In addition, taking the width direction perpendicular to the weld metal as the longitudinal direction of the test piece and making the weld metal approximately the center of the parallel part, an API standard test piece is taken and a tensile test is performed to determine the fracture position. Went. The results are shown in Table 4. The intragranular transformation structure of Table 4 is the area ratio of intragranular bainite.

  In addition, some base material steel plates are UO process, submerged arc welding, expanded to make steel pipes, the microstructure and mechanical properties are investigated, and the HAZ microstructure and mechanical properties of the base material steel plates and joints are equivalent. It was confirmed.

  Production No. 1 to 9 are examples of the present invention, and the effective crystal grain size of the base steel sheet is 20 μm or less, and the effective crystal grain size of HAZ is 150 μm or less. Further, the Charpy absorbed energy of the base material and HAZ at −40 ° C. exceeds 50 J, and the low temperature toughness is good. In these examples of the present invention, the fracture position of the joint tensile test is the base steel plate, and the softening of the HAZ is not a problem. Production No. No. 9 is an example in which the heat treatment temperature is low and the effect of improving low temperature toughness is slightly smaller than when heat treatment is performed at a preferred temperature.

  On the other hand, production No. Nos. 10, 11, 14, and 15 have components of the base steel plate outside the scope of the present invention. Nos. 12 and 13 have production conditions outside the scope of the present invention, and these are comparative examples. Among these, production No. No. 10 has a large amount of Al. No. 11 is an example in which intragranular bainite is reduced because the Ti content is small, and the low-temperature toughness of HAZ is also reduced.

  Production No. No. 12 is an example in which the reduction ratio at 900 ° C. or less is small, the effective crystal grain size of the base steel plate is large, and the low temperature toughness of the base steel plate is lowered. In addition, production No. No. 13 is an example in which the water cooling stop temperature is high, the area ratio of the polygonal ferrite of the base material is increased, and the strength is lowered. Production No. No. 14 is an example in which the strength is lowered because Ceq and Pcm are low. Production No. No. 15 is an example in which the strength is high and the toughness of the base steel sheet is lowered because Ceq and Pcm are high. Moreover, since the strength of the base material steel plate is high, it is broken at HAZ as a result of the tensile test of the joint.
