When it comes to projects involving metal parts, the sensitivity of the metal is an important factor. Depending on the project, you have to make sure the metal you are using can withstand what you are needing to use it for. In the case of extreme heat, heat resistant castings are vital. Many industries rely on heat resistant casting parts. Let’s take a deeper look into what heat-resistant cast parts are and who uses them.
What are They?
Heat resistant castings are castings that don’t melt or corrode in high temperatures. In fact, they have the capability of performing in conditions above 1200°F. They are usually higher in alloy content than other types of castings. Nickel and chromium are the main metal components found in heat resistant castings. Nickel usually amounts to about 70% of the casting, while chromium makes up anywhere from 10-30%. Other metals found include iron, carbon, silicon, manganese, and molybdenum.
Where Can They Be Found?
Many industries benefit from heat resistant casting. They include aircraft and aerospace, oil and gas, road construction, coal mining, steel production and processing, off-road equipment, food equipment, railroad, and bio waste.
