Analysis of the fractured sample showed that the cracks in the valve were generated due to hydrogen embrittlement (HE). The valve steel picked up hydrogen during chrome plating and/or chemical etching process. The high hardness of the valve in the groove region made it more susceptible for HE cracking. The valve provided for comparative study also showed presence of a crack in the induction hardened zone and adjacent to the groove. A detailed analysis of the failure is presented in this report and a few recommendations suggested.
