What is INCONEL 825 used for?

Uses and applications As you can see, INCOLOY alloy 825 has been carefully produced to give it a range of properties that make it useful in the chemicals industry. It’s also used in pollution control, oil and gas recovery, acid production, pickling operations, nuclear fuel reprocessing and handling radioactive waste.

Is alloy 825 INCONEL?

Description of Incoloy 825 In the oil and gas industry, the two most important nickel alloys are Inconel 625 and Incoloy 825.

What is the hardness of Inconel?

32 – 40 HRC
Inconel 718 NACE calls out for a different annealing temperature and chemistry while maintaining a hardness range from 32 – 40 HRC. Each condition has specific uses depending on the application.

What type of metal is Inconel?

Inconels are a class of nickel-chrome-based super alloys characterized by high corrosion resistance, oxidation resistance, strength at high temperatures, and creep resistance.

Is Inconel 825 magnetic?

Nickel. The heavy nickel content in Inconel alloys is one of the main sources of the magnetic properties of the alloys. Pure nickel is magnetic, even at room temperature, but is combined with elements such as chromium and carbon when making Inconel alloys.

What is the difference between Hastelloy and Inconel?

Comparing the two alloys, Inconel 625 has a higher chromium content, while Hastelloy C-276 has a higher molybdenum content. This makes them different in corrosion resistance in different environments.

What is Inconel metal used for?

Inconel® is ideally used in the oil and gas extraction industries due to its high temperature resistance and oxidation resistant properties. The oil and gas industries need a superalloy metal, like Inconel®, that can withstand extreme environments and volatile, corrosive gasses.

What is the composition of INCONEL?

This superalloy is composed mainly of nickel (58% min.) followed by chromium, and molybdenum, niobium, iron, tantalum, cobalt, and trace amounts of manganese, silicon, aluminium, and titanium. Inconel 625 also commonly goes by the names: Haynes 625, Altemp 625, Nickelvac 625, and Nicrofer 6020.
