Advantages and Specification of Inconel 718 Tubes

Inconel 718 Tubes

Nickel-chromium-iron is the main component of the Inconel 718 tube, which is made by age-hardening. Besides molybdenum, titanium, niobium, and aluminum, it contains considerable amounts of molybdenum, titanium, and niobium. The material is corrosion-resistant and extremely strong all at the same time. 

At temperatures up to 1300 degrees Fahrenheit, Inconel 718 tube has very good creep-rupture and yields tensile capabilities, as well as oxidation resistance to 1800 degrees Fahrenheit. Tubes made from Inconel 718 are used to make high-strength components such as jet engine buckets, wheels, spacers, and fasteners that handle high heat.


Advantages of Inconel 718 Tubes

With robust creep-rupture properties, these tubes are very high in yield power and have high tensile strength. Nickel is the main component of Inconel 718 Tubes. These tubes are made for applications that need very high yield power, high tensile strength, and robust creep-rupture properties.

Resistivity to chlorine, high temperatures, and sulfide stress corrosion cracking does not affect Inconel 718 tubes as it provides exceptional qualities. Tubes made from Inconel 718 do not corrode in water or crack when chloride ions attack them.

The alloy can be aged without cracking during annealing because of its delayed-response capability. In addition to having excellent welding capabilities, this material resists cracking after welding.

In addition to adding stiffness to the alloy, molybdenum will provide high strength without the necessity of heat treatment reinforcement. Adding aluminum and titanium to nickel-chromium alloys can toughen the alloys over time.


Specifications of Inconel 718 Tubes

There are many different specifications available for Inconel 718 tubes, including ASTM B163/ASME SB163, and ASTM B516/ASME SB516.

For seamless tubes, the outer diameter ranges from 3.35 mm to 101.6 mm, while for welded tubes, the outer diameter ranges from 6.35 mm to 152 mm.

In addition to polished tubes, annealed tubes, bright and annealed tubes, and tubes with metal fillers can be obtained.

Tubing and tubes are available in a wide range of dimensions and shapes, including seamless, efw, efw, welded, and fabricated, including hollow tubes, hydraulic tubes, tube coils, round tubes, rectangle tubes, square tubes, and so on.
