Corrosion resistant INCONEL, INCOLOY and MONEL, marine applications
Alloys in the INCONEL series are often encountered in extreme environments. These super alloys are oxidation and corrosion resistant and well-suited for service in extreme environments.
A newer alloy, INCONEL® alloy 725, offers even more corrosion resistance. A nickel-chromium-molybdenum-niobium alloy, it is highly resistant to corrosion and hardens with age, which increases its strength. INCONEL® alloy 725 is resistant to hydrogen embrittlement and stress-corrosion cracking, making it ideal for the manufacture of hangers, and high-strength fasteners in marine applications
INCONEL® alloy 625 is an excellent choice for sea-water applications, as it is resistant to pitting and crevice corrosion and has high corrosion-fatigue strength, high tensile strength, and is resistant to chloride-ion stress-corrosion cracking. Used in wire rope, propeller blades, propulsion motors and sheathing for undersea communication cables, this versatile alloy has earned its place in the marine industry.
Down-hole equipment, like hangers, uses another super alloy, INCOLOY® alloy 718 for its high strength and corrosion resistance.
MONEL alloy 400® is a nickel-copper alloy that is stronger than pure nickel and can be fabricated readily by hot- and cold-working, machining, and welding. MONEL alloys are resistant to corrosion by many agents, including rapidly flowing seawater. This feature, coupled with its resistance to bio-fouling and microbially induced corrosion (MIC), makes MONEL a cost-effective and robust alloy for the manufacture of wave protection sheathing for platform risers and steel pylon legs on offshore rigs.
