Alloy 600 (UNS N06600) is a nickel-chromium-iron, solid solution strengthened alloy used for applications that require corrosion and elevated temperature resistance. Service temperatures for alloy 600 can be from cryogenic to 1094°C. This alloy also has good workability, weldability and high strength.
With 72% minimum nickel, alloy 600 is resistant to many organic and inorganic compounds and also oﬀers good corrosion resistance in reducing conditions. The high nickel content lowers the chances for stress corrosion cracking for this alloy in the annealed condition. The high nickel content also improves resistance to carburizing, nitriding and thermal fatigue, while maintaining an austenitic structure so it retains ductility. Increased chromium in the alloy oﬀers high temperature resistance to sulfur compounds as well as resistance to oxidizing compounds at elevated temperatures or in corrosive media.
Typical applications for Alloy 600 are: Transport rollers, steel pipes, ventilators and other installations in industrial furnaces, Industrial furnace muffles, in particular for heat treatment in N2 atmospheres, Thermal element protective conduits in nitriding and carburizing atmospheres, Pipes for dichloroethylene pyrolysis, Components in the production of uranium tetrafluoride from hydrofluoric acid, production of caustic alkalis, especially with the presence of sulfur bonds, Reaction vessels and heat exchanger pipes in the production of vinyl chloride, plant parts for the production of chlorinated and fluorinated hydrocarbons, parts such as cladding tubes for control rods, reactor tanks and seals, steam dryers and separators in boiling water reactors, Pipes in TiCl4 evaporators in the production of TiO2, Vessels and piping used to contain caustic solutions , For the automotive industry the alloy is used for high temperature sensors, rupture discs in airbag systems, electrodes for spark plugs and gaskets. This alloy is also know as Inconel® 600, Chronin® 600, Altemp® 600, Nickelvac® 600 and Nicrofer ® 7216. Alloy 600 is available at CHUN & VOLLERIN in these formats: Bars, Plates, Pipes, Stripes.
