Inconel 625 has proven to be a material with excellent resistance to pitting, crevice and corrosion cracking. It is also highly resistant in a wide range of organic and mineral acids, and has good high temperature strength.
Inconel has almost complete freedom from chloride induced stress corrosion cracking, and a high resistance to oxidation at elevated temperatures up to 1050°C. It also has good resistance to acids, such as nitric, phosphoric, sulfuric and hydrochloric, as well as to alkalis makes possible the construction of thin structural parts of high heat transfer.
– Components where exposure to sea water and high mechanical stresses are required.
– Oil and gas production where hydrogen sulfide and elementary sulfur exist at temperature in excess of 150°C.
– Components exposed to flue gas or in flue gas desulfurization plants.
– Hydrocarbon processing from tar-sand and oil-shale recovery projects.
