Inconel alloy 601 is a Nickel primarily based alloy with a very high Chromium content (approx. 25wt %) with an addition of Aluminium, built to protect against high temperatures oxidising atmospheres in the heating treatments for metals or materials. The most commonly used thermowell sheathing materials and oxygen injection pipes in the metal and also glass producing industries. The field of usage extends to industrialized furnace retorts or muffles, baskets, jigs and fixtures, wire annealing pipes that have all already been produced within this superior high-temperature material. Tubing in the metal have been used for several years in ceramic tile making in the recent designs of roller hearth ovens as the materials resists the high-temperature burning cycle along with the corrosive effects of the glazes and also stucco used on the tiles.
Inconel alloys are suited to service in extreme conditions exposed to higher pressure and also kinetic energy because of their oxidation- and then corrosion-resistant properties. Inconel forms a thick as well as stable passivating oxide layer guarding the surface from extra attack, while heated, and also its keeps strength over a wide range of temperature. Inconel’s high-temperature strength is produced by strong solution improving or precipitation strengthening, based on the alloy
