Inconel Pipe Fittings

Inconel comes from a group of nickel-based super alloys. The Inconel Pipe Fittings are austenitic steel types. Extreme corrosion resistance and extreme environmental use is effective for Inconel Pipe Fittings. Inconel is usable in wide range of temperatures in which even stainless steel and aluminium do not work.

In exposure to heat, a passivating oxide layer is formed on the surface of Inconel. This oxide layer protects it from oxidation. Hence, extreme temperature applications like Gas Turbine Blades, pressure vessels, chemical vessels, heat exchangers, turbocharger rotors and seals, steam generators, nuclear water reactors and natural gas processing use Inconel Pipe Fittings. Inconel Pipe Fittings come in types like Tees, Reducers, Elbows,Pipe Cap, Cross, Pipe Bend and Stub End. Inconel Pipe Fittings have resistance towards sodium chloride corrosion, which makes it usable for many marine related applications. Strength in Inconel Pipe Fittings is higher than that of Stainless Steel. Even high temperature usability is good in Inconel Pipe Fittings. Temperature changes do not cause damage to Inconel. Hence, it is used in applications where temperature varies from cryogenic to melting. Machining is difficult on Inconel.
