Inconel Bolts with World Wide Shipping


Lightning Bolt has become a specialist in hard to find corrosion resistant fasteners. Included in the anti-corrosion alloys is Inconel. This alloy is a registered trademark of Special Metals Corporation that refers to a family of austenitic nickel-chromium-based superalloys, Inconel alloys are typically used in high temperature applications.

 

It is often referred to in English as "Inco" (or occasionally "Iconel"). Common trade names for Inconel include: Inconel 625, Chronin 625, Altemp 625, Haynes 625, Nickelvac 625 and Nicrofer 6020.

Inconel alloys are oxidation and corrosion resistant materials well suited for service in extreme environments. When heated, Inconel forms a thick, stable, passivating oxide layer protecting the surface from further attack. Inconel retains strength over a wide temperature range, attractive for high temperature applications where aluminum and steel would succumb to creep as a result of thermally-induced crystal vacancies (see Arrhenius equation).

 

Inconel's high temperature strength is developed by solid solution strengthening or precipitation strengthening, depending on the alloy. In age hardening or precipitation strengthening varieties, small amounts of niobium combine with nickel to form the intermetallic compound Ni3Nb or gamma prime (γ'). Gamma prime forms small cubic crystals that inhibit slip and creep effectively at elevated temperatures.

Inconel is often encountered in extreme environments. It is this reason why fasteners, nuts, bolts, socket head cap screws, and washers made of Inconel are commonly found in gas turbine blades, seals, and combustors, as well as turbocharger rotors and seals, electric submersible well pump motor shafts, high temperature fasteners, chemical processing and pressure vessels, heat exchanger tubing, steam generators in nuclear pressurized water reactors, natural gas progressing with contaminants such as H2S and CO2, firearm sound suppressor blast baffles, and Formula One and NASCAR exhaust systems. Inconel is increasingly used in the boilers of waste incinerators.

 

Some Inconel alloys that we can include:

  • Inconel 600: Solid solution strengthened

  • Inconel 625: Acid resistant, good weldability

  • Inconel 690: Low cobalt content for nuclear applications

  • Inconel 718: Gamma double prime strengthened with good weldability

  • Inconel 751: Increased aluminum content for improved rupture strength in the 1600 F range

  • Inconel 939: Gamma prime strengthened with good weldability
