Stainless steel is a highly sought-after alloy that has earned a lot of recognition from varying industries and manufacturing services due to its sheer strength and aesthetic appeal.
Hastelloy is one of the high-performance alloys that are greatly applied to inert and vacuum atmospheres that are exposed to aluminum chloride catalysts, hydrochloric acid, and reducing chemicals.
Some of the industries where this alloy is applied are mostly exposed to phosphoric, sulfuric, acetic, and hydrochloric acids. Thus making it a suitable alloy for certain high-heat-based applications. This type of high-performance nickel alloy can offer exceptional creep-and-stress rupture all while maintaining good casting attributes.
This alloy has great machinability properties which include:
For workability, Hastelloy is being annealed to produce ideal characteristics for fabricating sheets. Below you will find a chart containing details on different alloy grades should this material pique your interest.
|Hastelloy C||has strong resisting properties in extreme heat; has high strength; oxidation resistant||heat-treating equipment, combustion chambers, aircraft and jets, pump valves, pipe connections|
|Hastelloy W||solid-solution strengthened; can be produced plates; nickel-base||used for welding dissimilar alloys|
|Hastelloy C27||wrought corrosion-resistant alloy; corrosion resistant||desulfurization of flue gas equipment and chemical process equipment|
|Hastelloy X||offers good strength; oxidation resistant; nickel-chromium-iron molybdenum||metallurgical industry; jet components; chemical process industry|
|Hastelloy N||high-temperature nickel alloy; oxidation resistant; readily fabricated||ideal for high-heat applications, equipment used with fluoride salts, extreme heat uses|
|Hastelloy B2||wrought nickel-molybdenum alloy; resistant to temperatures and concentrations of hydrochloric acid||used in welded condition|
|Hastelloy S||nickel-based, high heat alloy; has high-heat mechanical properties; has excellent thermal stability||used in high-temperature parts|
We also have Custom 450 on hand, which is a high-performance alloy that is simple to build and harden. The yield strength of this nickel alloy grade is similar to that of martensitic stainless steel.
