Inconel is a nickel-based alloy and is suited for applications when high temperature and strength will be required. It has excellent impact strength and can be used in many areas within the aerospace industry. It provides excellent fatigue resistance and strength.
However, the 625 sheet, while still a nickel-based alloy, also includes chromium and molybdenum, along with niobium. Molybdenum and niobium work together to stiffen the alloy even more, offering more strength without a heating treatment. It is also resistant to pitting and crevice corrosion and offers a temperature range of up to 2,000 degrees Fahrenheit. It is highly durable and sturdy, as well as having a resistance to chloride ions and stress-corrosion tracking.
Inconel 625 sheet is resistant to oxidation and corrosion. It has nonmagnetic properties and is resistant to deterioration, as well. They are resistant to neutral salts, salt water, alkaline chemicals, air and fresh water. Because of this, it is an excellent option for chemical processing, hardware manufacturing, aerospace and traditional engineering, as well as marine engineering and power generation. However, because it provides resistance to heat, corrosion, and pressure, it is excellent to use in the aerospace field.
Unique Features And Benefits
It provides special features that can’t be found with other alloys. Therefore, the Inconel 625 sheet is also used in gas-powered turbine systems, furnace hardware, production equipment, acid storage, and production tubing for sour gas. It can also be used as a chimney liner, heat shield, bubble cap, distillation columns and heat exchanger.
Because it includes niobium, it can withstand welding procedures and can be used in many other applications.
It is available in various sizes and can be utilized for highly-specific applications. While the sheets are perfect for many applications, you can also find it as a plate, bar, or tube.
