Alloy 600 / 2.4816/ Inconel 600

Alloy 600 is a nickel-chrome-iron alloy which is characterized by:

- Good mechanical properties at low, room and elevated temperatures

- very good resistance to stress-corrosion cracking , even at elevated temperatures

- very good resistance to high-temperature corrosion in dry chlorine and hydrogen chloride

- Good resistance to oxidation, carburization and nitriding

Main fields of application of alloy 600

Alloy600 is versatile. Some Applications of Alloy 600 are:

- Furnace casing seals, fans and fittings - stable in furnace atmospheres

- vessels and heat exchanger tubes in the production of vinyl chloride

- components for the preparation of chlorinated and fluorinated hydrocarbons

- Tubes for pyrolysis-dichloroethylene – resistant to carburization, chlorine, hydrogen chloride and oxidation

- Production of caustic alkalis, particularly with existence of sulfur compounds

. In nuclear reactors for parts such as ducts for control rods, reactor vessels and seals, steam dryers and separators in boiling water reactors

- Transport rollers, nozzles and other fittings in industrial furnaces

- Metamorphosis from uranium oxide to tetrafluoride by hydrofluoric acid – stable against hydrofluoric acid

- Thermocouple Protection Tubes – resistant to carburizing and nitriding atmosphere

Filler metal (for welding with alloy 600)

Alloy 600 can be welded using covered electrodes by all conventional processes such as TIG, MIG pulse technology, manual arc welding. For TIG and MIG welding an addition type 2.4806 and a coated electrode to the appropriate type 2.4648 should be used. Moreover 2.4620 serves as filler material for 2.4816.
