A major roadblock during the construction of a turbine is selecting an appropriate material that aids to combat creep. In this instance, Inconel 718 is an ideal metal, which not only offers good tensile, but also good fatigue, along with higher creep, and rupture strength. Moreover, creep occurring in these turbines is a result of both high stress and elevated temperatures. Since Inconel 718 is a high strength alloy, the UNS N07718 tube is able to withstand temperature as high as about 1300°F.
Hence, our clients are not let down by the efficient performance of this nickel based AMS 5590 Alloy 718 seamless tube. The SAE specified AMS 5590 is a solution annealed alloy. This corrosion resistant AMS 5590 designated Inconel 718 pipe is annealed at a temperature of 1950°F; following which the alloy is cooled rapidly, preferably in water. Once cooled these tubes are precipitation hardened at 1400°F for a duration of about 10 hours and the Inconel 718 tube is furnace cooled to a temperature of about 1200°F. Ageing then takes place at the same temperature for 20 hours.
The AMS 5589 Alloy 718 seamless pipe is well suited for applications involving fluid lines and components, where the primary requirement is resistance to stress-rupture of up to a temperature of 1300°F. In addition, the AMS 5589 specified Alloy 718 seamless tubing has good oxidation resistance up to a temperature of 1800°F.

Why alloy 718 tubes are used for aerospace components and oilfield applications?
The alloy 718 is a nickel chromium alloy that could be precipitation hardened. It has very high creep rupture strengths at elevated temperatures at about 700 degrees Celsius. It is a high strength alloy with high corrosion resistance properties. In addition to hardening, it could also be readily fabricated. It has minimum tensile strength at 1100MPa and minimum yield strength at 980MPa which are both very high values. So the material is suitable to operate in cryogenic applications, aviation and aerospace and other high temperature services. Since the oilfield applications can encounter highly corrosive content and high temperatures, the alloy 718 is used in aerospace components and in oilfield applications.
