Features of INCONEL C276 (Shanghai HY Industry Co., Ltd-marketing department)

Nickel alloys work hard in extreme environments containing corrosive acids and other corrosive media. INCONEL C-276 is a popular choice even in the harshest conditions. Here we look at its properties and why they are suitable for these harsh environments.

There are many factors to consider when selecting the right material for harsh industrial environments. You need to know what corrosive media will be present, what the operating temperature range will be and what loads the material will be subjected to. In harsh conditions, materials will need to be able to operate under extreme heat and pressure in some of the most corrosive conditions on Earth.

Finding an alloy that can survive this extreme environment is no easy task. INCONEL Alloy C-276 is a material to consider due to its excellent corrosion resistance to many aggressive media. It is widely used in a variety of different industrial applications and is considered one of the most versatile options for harsh environments. As a nickel alloy supplier, Shanghai HY Industry Co.,Ltd has a comprehensive understanding of each material and has extensive experience in the properties, properties and applications of the world’s leading specialty alloys.

Main features of alloy C276

The reason INCONEL C-276 is used in harsh environments is due to the properties of its nickel alloy. It is a nickel-chromium superalloy with a high molybdenum content (15-17%). The content of tungsten and iron can also be controlled, and the carbon content can be strictly limited. The low carbon content minimizes carbide precipitation during heat treatment and welding. This means that the alloy retains its excellent resistance to pitting and crevice corrosion when used in welded structures. In other materials, the welded area is weakened when heated during welding, in order to be more resistant to corrosion. INCONEL C-276 is sometimes laser clad on the surface of low alloy materials in the weld zone to provide additional protection for higher performance in industrial applications.

The corrosion resistance of the material is one of its main advantages. It resists general corrosion well, such as stress corrosion cracking, pitting and crevice corrosion, even in very harsh environments. It is extremely resistant to sulfuric acid, hydrochloric acid and phosphoric acid. Also has great corrosion resistance to highly oxidizing, neutral and acidic chlorides; and solvents, formic and acetic acids, acetic anhydride, wet chlorine, hypochlorite and chlorine solutions. This is why INCONEL C-276 is well used in the chemical processing industry. Finally, it also has excellent resistance to seawater corrosion, especially in crevice conditions.

Alloy C276 Industry Application

With such a broad range of resistance, INCONEL C-276 is used in many industrial applications.

For example, it is used in FGD systems to control air pollution in power plants. The components it is used for include scrubbers, pipes and chimney liners. Compared to other alloys, INCONEL C-276 alloy has the ability to withstand higher chloride content corrosion before localized corrosion occurs. Given the presence of chlorides in scrubber liquid and gas condensate, this is the industry’s first choice.

INCONEL C-276 has also been selected for certain oilfield and subsea applications. When recovering and processing sour natural gas, which typically contains hydrogen sulfide, carbon dioxide, and chlorides, materials need to have good resistance to sulfide stress cracking and stress corrosion cracking. INCONEL C-276 has high levels of nickel, chromium and molybdenum, which together provide this corrosion resistance even at high temperatures in deep wells. It is commonly used for parts such as pipelines, downhole and surface assemblies.

The INCONEL C-276 composition can also be used for pollution control and waste disposal in very harsh environments. The high molybdenum content in INCONEL C-276 contributes to resistance to pitting and crevice corrosion. It is used in the most aggressive parts of a waste liquid treatment system, to the point where other materials will not be able to handle harsh conditions. In controlling air pollution, the alloy is used in chimney liners, ducts, dampers, scrubbers, chimney gas reheaters, fans and fan covers, etc.

INCONEL C-276 is also an important material in chemical processing. It has been selected for use in processes containing ferric and cupric chloride ions, chlorine, hypochlorite, chlorine dioxide, organic acids, acetic anhydride, seawater, brine and acidic oil and gas wellhead fluids. It is used in heat exchangers, reaction vessels, evaporators and transfer piping.
