Product Description

Inconel 601

Inconel 601

  • outstanding resistance to oxidation at high temperatures
  • good resistance to carburizing conditions
  • good mechanical properties at both room and elevated temperatures
  • good resistance to stress-corrosion cracking

Inconel 601 Alloy is specifically recommended for service above 550℃ because of higher creep-rupture properties, resulting from controlled carbon content and coarse grain size.

Density: 8.11

Corrosion resistance

Inconel 601 Alloy is a heat resistant alloy on account of its excellent resistance above 550 ℃ against hot gases and combustion products, as well as against molten salt and molten metal corrosion, while at the same time exhibiting good mechanical short-time and long-term properties. Even under severe conditions, such as under cyclic heating and cooling, Inconel 601 Alloy retains a tightly adherent oxide layer which is very resistant to spalling.
Resistance to carburization is good. Inconel 601 Alloy has also shown good resistance in carbonitriding conditions, if a sufficiently high oxygen partial pressure is present.

Applications of Inconel 601:

Inconel 601 Alloy has found a wide variety of applications in industries as diverse as thermal and chemical processing, pollution control and power generation.

Typical applications are:

  • trays, baskets and fixtures for heat treatment plant
  • refractory anchors, strand-annealing and radiant heater tubes, high-velocity gas burners, wire mesh belts in industrial furnaces
  • insulating cans in ammonia reformers and catalyst support grids in nitric acid production
  • components in exhaust gas systems
  • combustion chambers in solid waste incinerators
  • tube supports and ash-handling components
  • components of waste-gas detoxification systems
  • oxygen preheaters
