Inconel has the resisting properties against crevice, pitting, and corrosion cracking as well as to vast range of mineral and organic acids.
Inconel and other inconel products are widely used mostly in components and structures that are exposed in seawater.
They are perfect for environments that require great ease in highly mechanical stressed exposures. Another suitable application for inconel are the areas that are also exposed to flue gas like in desulfurization plants as well as in oil platforms, oil and gas production, and oil-shale recovery projects.
Basically, the reason why inconel materials fit a lot of heavy duty and stringent operations are the exceptional mechanical characteristics they possess including:
- Complete ease in chloride induced stress corrosion cracking
- Good resistance to acids like phosphoric, nitric, hydrochloric, and sulfuric, allowing possible construction of high heat transfer in thin structural components
- Exceptional mechanical properties at both extremely low and high levels of temperatures
- Oxidation resistance even at high temperatures
- Intercrystalline, pitting, and crevice corrosion resistance
