What is the difference between INCONEL 600 and 601?

What is the difference between INCONEL 600 and 601?

Like Inconel 600, Inconel 601 offers resistance to various forms of high-temperature corrosion and oxidization. However, unlike 600, this nickel-chromium alloy has an addition of aluminum. This addition allows it to demonstrate high mechanical properties even in extremely hot environments.

What is INCONEL made out of?

Inconel alloys vary widely in their compositions, but all are predominantly nickel, with chromium as the second element.

What is INCONEL 600 material?

INCONEL® (nickel-chromium-iron) alloy 600 (UNS N06600/W.Nr. 2.4816) is a standard engineering material for applications which require resistance to corrosion and heat. The alloy also has excellent mechanical properties and presents the desirable combination of high strength and good workability.

What Incoloy 800?

Alloy 800 is an iron-nickel-chromium alloy with moderate strength and good resistance to oxidation and carburization at elevated temperatures. It has improved creep and stress-rupture characteristics in the 1100°F (593°C) to 1800°F (982°C) temperature range.

What is the composition of the Inconel 601 alloy?

The composition of the particular alloy is the following: The Inconel 601 alloy can be formed, machined and welded by standard procedures. That said, it is strongly recommended to clean it from oil or paint before heating, as with every other alloy with high nickel content.

Why is Inconel 601 used for creep rupturing?

Inconel 601 introduces superior creep rupturing strength and is extensively utilized in the apparatus that operate under high temperatures for extended periods. It is significantly used for these purposes as it offers excellent resistance to oxidation and other kinds of corrosion conditions at the elevated temperatures.

What should the forging temperature be for Inconel 601?

The temperature of hot forging of Inconel 601 alloy is 1600 to 2250oF or 870-1230oC. The hot processing operations that consist of wider distortions should be conducted at temperature of 1900oF to 2250oF or 1040oC to 1230oC. Alloy 601 has low ductile nature at higher temperature of 1200 to 1600oF or 650-870oC so it is not recommend to process in

What kind of alloy is 601 nickel chromium?

601 Inconel 601 is a nickel-chromium alloy, that is highly resistant to oxidation through 2200°F. 601 alloy develops a tightly adherent oxide scale which resists spalling even under severe thermal cycling.
