What is Inconel 625?
Inconel 625 is a nickel-based superalloy that is highly resistant to corrosion and high temperatures. The strength of Inconel 625 is not compromised by multiple heat cycles, and it can withstand temperatures up to 1000°C. Traditionally, Inconel 625 is an extremely expensive material to use, however the Metal X system now allows manufacturers to take advantage of this material at a fraction of the typical cost.
Industries and Applications
Inconel 625 truly shines in high temperature environments, corrosive environments, and during rapid temperature changes. Relevant industries include chemical/power processing, aerospace, automotive, and seawater or offshore oil and gas.
The chemical and power processing industries need materials that withstand both high temperatures and a wide variety of chemicals. Waste-processing systems require materials that have resistance to both oxidizing and reducing acid solutions. Inconel 625 is the perfect material for this environment due to its chemical resistivity and performance at high temperatures.
The aerospace and automotive industries have been taking advantage of Inconel’s properties as well. The high temperatures in engines and corrosive environments suit Inconel perfectly for many different applications.
Seawater systems are highly corrosive that will destroy even the strongest materials. Inconel 625 showcases extraordinary resistance to sodium chloride at a variety of temperatures. The material is perfect for wire rope and propeller blades that are used in underwater applications.
