Short Description:

Alloy 602CA  is a high carbon chromium-iron-nickel alloy which also contains additives of microalloy elements titanium, zirconium and aluminum, and yttrium.

Product Description

Inconel 602CA  is one of the most oxidation resistant nickel alloys available. Outstanding oxidation resistance is achieved through a high chromium content (25%) supplemented with aluminum (2.2%) and a microalloying addition of yttrium (0.1%). High chromium contents are known to be beneficial for resisting oxidation. The aluminum addition allows for the formation of a continuous homogenous self repairing AI2O3 subscale. The addition of yttrium improves the adhesion and spalling resistance of the chromium and aluminum oxide scales. The extremely low scaling rate of alloy 602CA makes it an excellent candidate for applications such as calciners, where minimal contamination from scaling is permissible.

Extended exposure to methane (CH4), carbon monoxide (CO), and other carbon rich gases can lead to carburization. As heat resistant alloys absorb carbon, their ductility will gradually decrease. Alloys that are high in nickel, such as alloy 602CA possess excellent resistance to carburization attack8. Alloy 602CA forms a tenacious oxide scale, which provides increased protection from carburization. This protective scale impedes the carbon from being absorbed into the base metal.

Inconel 602CA is a high-temperature nickel-chromium alloy that belongs to the family of Inconel alloys. It is also known as Alloy 602CA or Inconel 602. This alloy is specifically designed for applications that require exceptional high-temperature strength, oxidation resistance, and resistance to carburization and sulfidation.

The composition of Inconel 602CA consists of nickel (approximately 60%), chromium (around 25%), iron (approximately 8%), and various other elements such as manganese, silicon, carbon, and sulfur in smaller amounts. The addition of rare earth elements like cerium and zirconium provides enhanced high-temperature stability and resistance to oxidation and corrosion.

Here are some key properties and characteristics of Inconel 602CA:

  1. High-temperature strength: Inconel 602CA exhibits excellent strength and mechanical properties at elevated temperatures, making it suitable for applications in extreme heat environments.
  2. Oxidation resistance: The high chromium content in Inconel 602CA provides exceptional resistance to oxidation, enabling it to withstand high-temperature oxidizing atmospheres.
  3. Carburization and sulfidation resistance: This alloy demonstrates good resistance to carburization and sulfidation, which are processes involving the diffusion of carbon and sulfur into the material at high temperatures. This resistance is beneficial for applications in petrochemical, chemical, and power generation industries.
  4. Creep resistance: Inconel 602CA has good resistance to creep deformation, which is important for applications subjected to prolonged exposure to high temperatures and constant stress.
  5. Weldability: Inconel 602CA can be readily welded using common welding techniques, allowing for the fabrication and repair of components.

Inconel 602CA is used in various high-temperature applications such as radiant tubes, furnace muffles, heat treatment equipment, catalytic crackers, and components in petrochemical and chemical processing industries. Its combination of high-temperature strength, oxidation resistance, and resistance to carburization and sulfidation makes it suitable for environments with demanding thermal and chemical conditions.
