Using Inconel 600 bolts gives the user an edge over other traditionally used carbon steel or stainless steel bolts. Diving into specifics, the level of corrosion resistance offered by Inconel 600 hex bolt is much higher in comparison to conventional steels.

This alone makes the Inconel 600 nuts more preferable in key industries such as natural gas and petrochemical industries. To elaborate, let us take a Natural gas processing unit.The processing of natural gas is a complex industrial process by itself. This process has been designed to clean out raw natural gas by means of separating impurities. In addition, there are various non-methane hydrocarbons as well as fluids that can be used to produce what is referred to as pipeline quality dry natural gas.

During the processing of natural gas, several common contaminants such as water, carbon dioxide and hydrogen sulfide come in contact with the pieces of equipment including the Alloy 600 studs. These contaminants are highly corrosive in nature. Hence, using Din 2.4816 forging in the equipment makes sense. This is because of the varied benefits offered by the Inconel 600 threaded rod. Not only is the material, as mentioned previously resistant to corrosion, but the ASTM B160 Inconel Alloy 600 Fasteners are able to stand any curve thrown their way.

For instance, the Inconel 600 fasteners can withstand high levels of stresses as expected in a gas processing plant. In addition, the tensile strength of the Alloy 600 stud bolts is much higher than regular steel grades.

 

Why Inconel 600 Fasteners?

Inconel 600 bolts are quite expensive compare to 316 Stainless steel but in Sea water, sulfuric acid, Boiler and Heat exchangers it a better option in long term due to resistance to heat and corrosion.

Why Inconel 600 fasteners are used in Furnaces and Chemical processing?

The Inconel 600 is a nickel chromium alloy that has very high heat resistance and oxidation resistance. Because of these properties it is desired in high temperature services. The material can operate above 1000 degrees Celsius. The material is also resistant to carburizing and chloride ion rich environments. The combination of all of the above mechanical properties makes the material suitable for applications that have high temperature services and high corrosion risk. The furnaces operate at high temperatures and the chemical processing takes place with high corrosion probabilities. So the Alloy 600 Fasteners are used in both of these applications.
