INCOLOY and other super alloys in power generation
An outstanding balance of strength, temperature, and defect tolerance characteristics, makes UDIMET® alloy X-720 ideal in gas turbine engine components like discs, shafts and blades.
NIMONIC® alloy 80A, is corrosion and oxidation resistant and has high tensile and creep-rupture properties at temperatures to 815ºC (1500ºF). It is found in gas-turbine components in nuclear generators.
NIMONIC® alloy 81 applications include components for gas turbines and heat-exchange plants that are subject to attack by deposits from the combustion of impure fuels. It has good tensile and rupture strength and creep resistance at elevated temperatures.
INCONEL® alloy 617 has exceptional combination of metallurgical stability, strength, and oxidation resistance at high temperatures, as well as a wide range of corrosive aqueous environments. It is found in gas turbines for combustion cans and ducting.
INCONEL® alloy 625 has excellent mechanical properties at extremely low and extremely high temperatures. It shows outstanding resistance to pitting, crevice corrosion and inter-crystalline corrosion. It is almost completely free from chloride-induced stress corrosion cracking.
INCONEL ® alloy 690 is resistant to many corrosive aqueous media and high-temperature atmospheres and sulfidation. It has high strength, good metallurgical stability, and favourable fabrication characteristics.
INCOLOY® alloy 600 resists corrosion and is virtually immune to chloride-ion stress-corrosion cracking and oxidizing conditions. The versatility of INCOLOY® alloy 600 has led to its use in a variety of applications involving temperatures from cryogenic to above 2000°F.
INCOLOY alloy X-750 is also resistant to general corrosion, pitting and crevice corrosion in chemicals containing chlorides and sulfuric, phosphoric, and nitric acids, and is used for tanks, piping, heat exchangers, pumps and valves.
High resistance to corrosion, cracking, and deformation at high temperatures makes INCOLOY® alloy 908 highly effective in nuclear fission development programmes, solar engineering and coal, oil and waste fuelled installations.
