Inconel 601

Inconel 601 is a nickel-chromium alloy utilized for applications that need resistance to corrosion as well as heat. This nickel alloy is resistant high temperature oxidation, and highly resistant to oxidation through 2200° F. Inconel 601 develops a supporter oxide scale which resists spalling even under conditions of severe thermal cycling. Alloy 601 has superior high temperature strength, and retains its ductility even after long service exposure. Inconel 601 offers high mechanical potency, and is readily formed, machined and welded. It’s extensively used in various industries such as thermal processing, chemical processing, pollution control, aerospace, and power generation.

Inconel 600 temperature ranges between 1600° to 2250°F (870° to 1230°C). Light work can be done at 1600°F (870°C) and heavy work range should be in between 1900° and 2250°F (1040° and 1230°C). In the annealed condition, this alloy perform balanced yield strength of 25,000 to 50,000 psi (172 to 345 MPa). Yield strength with elongations of 55% to 35%, Inconel 600 can be fabricated easily.
