inconel alloy 600 is an excellent heat-treating material. It is used in many applications where it must withstand high temperatures and resist corrosion. It is also an excellent choice for nuclear reactors because of its good resistance to oxidation.

Alloy 600 has a high nickel content that gives it good oxidation resistance, while its chromium content offers good resistance to reducing conditions and corrosive media. It also has a good phosphorus content, which helps to make it very resistant to chloride-ion stress corrosion cracking.

This alloy is available in pipe, tube, sheet, plate, round bar, flat bar, forging stock, hexagon, wire and extruded shapes. It is a good choice for furnace components and crucibles, and it has good performance in carbon nitriding processes.

Typical applications of this material include heat treating muffles, retorts and baskets, acidic and alkaline digestion equipment. Steam dryers, d separators and baffle plates in pressurized water reactors, control rod guide tubes and a wide range of other process equipment.

The high nickel and chromium content in this alloy means that it retains considerable resistance under reducing conditions, demonstrates adequate resistance to a variety of organic and non-organic corrosive materials, supplies good resistance to chloride-ion stress corrosion cracking and excellent resistance to alkaline solutions.

Austral Wright Metals supply Inconel 600 in a number of forms, including seamless and welded tube and pipe, welding fittings and forging stock. It is available in a wide range of sizes and thicknesses, including thicker grade for high temperature applications.
