Nickel alloys consist of many different alloys which are utilized for their special qualities such as outstanding corrosion and high temperature which allow them to perform in extreme conditions.
The recent alloys in these category also have a wide range of ancillary elements are combined to provide unique properties – some of these can be quite complicated and require very close control over composition and heat treatment.
ALLOY 276 / C276
Alloy 276 is a nickel-molybdenum-chromium super alloy with an expansion of tungsten designed to have excellent corrosion resistance in an extensive variety of serious situations. The high nickel alloy and molybdenum substance make the nickel steel alloy particularly resistant to pitting and crevice corrosion in reducing situations while chromium passes on resistance to oxidizing media. The low carbon content minimizes carbide precipitation during welding to keep up corrosion resistance in as-welded structures.
These nickel alloys are resistant to the formation of grain limit accelerates in the weld heat-influenced area, along with thus making it suitable for most chemical process applications in an as welded condition. Although the fact that there are a few varieties of the Hastelloy nickel alloy, Hastelloy C-276 is by far the most generally utilized. Alloy C-276 is mostly utilized as a part of the most serious situations, for example, chemical processing, pollution control, pulp and paper production; industrial and municipal waste treatment and recovery of sour natural gas.
