Inconel Ball Valve Balls

Inconel Valve Balls

Properties of Inconel Valve Balls
High tensile, creep, and rupture strength; outstanding fatigue and thermal-fatigue strength; oxidation resistance; and excellent weldability and brazeability are the properties of INCONEL alloy that make it interesting to the aerospace field.

they offer many benefits. One such important property is that the Inconel Ball Valves inherently has good corrosion resistance properties. To elaborate, ball valves usually resist corrosion and in the combination with the metal used to produced Inconel High-Pressure Ball Valves would mean that its resistance to corrosion is top-notch. Apart from being used in high-temperature settings, the Inconel Cryogenic Ball Valves can be used in lower temperatures too without compromising its mechanical properties. Since the material inherently has good corrosion resistance attribute, many suppliers prefer using this nickel based Inconel Ball Valves in various applications.

In brief Inconel Ball Valve has –
Good resistance to acids, such as sulfuric, phosphoric, nitric, and hydrochloric
Almost completely free from chloride induced stress corrosion cracking
Excellent mechanical properties at both extremely low and extremely high temperatures
Outstanding resistance to pitting, crevice corrosion and intercrystalline corrosion
High resistance to oxidation at elevated temperatures
Applications of Inconel Ball Valve
The properties of INCONEL alloy that make it an excellent choice for sea-water applications are freedom from local attack (pitting and crevice corrosion), high corrosion-fatigue strength, high tensile strength, and resistance to chloride-ion stress-corrosion cracking.

Industries in which Inconel Ball Valve is used?
Chemical and petrochemical processing
Components where exposure to high mechanical stress and sea water are required
Flare stacks on offshore oil platforms
Gas turbines, rocket motors/engines, and space craft
Pollution control equipment
Nuclear reactors
Strength of INCONEL alloy is derived from the stiffening effect of molybdenum and niobium on its nickel-chromium matrix; thus precipitation hardening treatments are not required. This combination of elements also is responsible for superior resistance to a wide range of corrosive environments of unusual severity as well as to high-temperature effects such as oxidation and carburization.

Advantages of Inconel Valve Balls
Inconel Ball Valve are very effective in highly corrosive or damaging environment .

Inconel valves offer excellent corrosion and high temperature resistance. Inconel valve balls is available in a variety of grades such as Inconel 600, Inconel 625, Inconel 601, Inconel 617, Inconel 718 and Inconel 725.
