Lotus-type porous Fe-25wt.%Cr and Fe-23wt.%Cr-2wt.%Mo alloys were fabricated by continuous zone melting technique in pressurized hydrogen gas. After applying a high temperature nitriding treatment, the fabricated Lotus-type porous nickel-free stainless steel absorbed larger amount of nitrogen compared with non-porous alloy of the same composition since the surface area exposed to the gas is larger in the porous samples. In the Lotus-type porous Fe-25wt.%Cr and Fe-23wt.%Cr-2wt.%Mo alloys the nitrogen concentration after the nitriding achieved was approximately 1.2 wt.%. Only austenite peaks were detected in the profile of both Fe-Cr-N alloys after the nitriding treatment. Neither CrN nor Cr2N were identified by XRD in any specimen after the nitriding.
