Product Description

Nickel-chromium-molybdenum alloy 625 is a material with excellent resistance to pitting, crevice and corrosion cracking.

Highly resistant in a wide range of organic and mineral acids.

Good high temperature strength.

General Data

  • Excellent mechanical properties at both extremely low and extremely high temperatures.
  • Outstanding resistance to pitting, crevice corrosion and intercrystalline corrosion.
  • Almost complete freedom from chloride induced stress corrosion cracking.
  • High resistance to oxidation at elevated temperatures up to 1050°C.
  • Good resistance to acids, such as nitric, phosphoric, sulfuric and hydrochloric, as well as to alkalis makes possible the construction of thin structural parts of high heat transfer.

Applications

  • Components where exposure to sea water and high mechanical stresses are required.
  • Oil and gas production where hydrogen sulfide and elementary sulfur exist at temperature in excess of 150°C.
  • Components exposed to flue gas or in flue gas desulfurization plants.
  • Flare stacks on offshore oil platforms.
  • Hydrocarbon processing from tar-sand and oil-shale recovery projects.

Plasma Arc Cutting

Our alloys can be cut using any conventional plasma arc cutting system. The best arc quality is achieved using a mixture of argon and hydrogen gases. Nitrogen gas can be substituted for hydrogen gases, but the cut quality will deteriorate slightly. Shop air or any oxygen bearing gases should be avoided when plasma cutting these alloys.

Machining

Nickel and cobalt based alloys can be difficult to machinine. However, it should be emphasized that these alloys can be machined using conventional production methods at satisfactory rates. These alloys harden rapidly, generate high heat during cutting, weld to the cutting tool surface and offer high resistance to metal removal because of their high shear strengths. The following are key points which should be considered during machining operations:

  • CAPACITY - Machine should be rigid and overpowered as much as possible.
  • RIGIDITY - Work piece and tool should be held rigid. Minimize tool overhang.
  • TOOL SHARPNESS - Make sure tools are sharp at all times. Change to sharpened tools at regular intervals rather than out of necessity. A 0.015 inch wear land is considered a dull tool.
  • TOOLS - Use positive rake angle tools for most machining operations. Negative rake angle tools can be considered for intermittent cuts and heavy stock removal. Carbide-tipped tools are suggested for most applications. High speed tools can be used, with lower production rates, and are often recommended for intermittent cuts.
  • POSITIVE CUTS - Use heavy, constant, feeds to maintain positive cutting action. If feed slows and the tool dwells in the cut, work hardening occurs, tool life deteriorates and close tolerances are impossible.
  • LUBRICATION - lubricants are desirable. Soluble oils are recommended especially when using carbide tooling. Detailed machining parameters are presented Tables 16 and 17. General plasma cutting recommendations are presented in Table 18.
