Inconel is an alloy of nickel that also contains iron and chromium. It is resilient to both high temperatures and corrosion, making it a valuable material. The only disadvantage is that it is it’s not that affordable to produce. While it is reliable and durable, it is one of the more expensive materials you can use. However, it is worth the cost because the content is extremely tough. Likewise, it does not break down or falter often.
Inconel 600 a nickel-chromium alloy with stable high-temperature oxidation resistance. It is also resistant to chloride-ion stress-corrosion cracking, corrosion by high-purity, water, and caustic corrosion. Hence, this type of alloy is ideal for furnace components, chemical and food processing, nuclear engineering, and sparking electrodes.
The chromium content allows the alloy to resist sulfur compounds and other oxidizing conditions. The chromium content found in Inconel 600 makes it ideal for a commercially pure nickel under an oxidizing environment. It is relatively un-hampered by the majority of alkaline and neutral salt solutions.
Inconel 600 is used and applied by several industries. It is involved in process equipment such as fluorinated and chlorinated hydrocarbon productions. Manufacturers of a heat exchanger and reactor vessels like using this type of alloy, especially in the construction of vinyl chloride and other substances.
Inconel is excellent when it comes to dealing with rapid temperature changes too. It can withstand the cold just as well as it faces the heat. Since the material does not corrode, it is very commonly used in various marine applications too. To know more about Inconel, contact Ferralloy today!
