Alloy 800 | UNS N08800 | 1.4876
Alloy 800 is a widely used material of construction for equipment that must resist corrosion, have high strength or resist oxidation, carburization and other harmful effects of high-temperature exposure.
For high temperature applications requiring optimum creep and rupture properties Alloy 800HP is used.
The Chromium in the alloy imparts resistance to oxidation and corrosion.
The high Nickel content maintains an austenitic structure so that the alloy is ductile.
The Nickel also contributes resistance to scaling, general corrosion and stress corrosion cracking.
The iron content provides resistance to internal oxidation.
Good creep-rupture properties at temperatures above 600 deg. C (1110 deg.F) without loss of ductility during long term use at temperatures below 700 deg. C (1290 deg.F), due to limitation of (Ti & A) content to max 0.7%. However, by using 800HP with increased (Al & Ti) content to 1.2%, temperatures above 700 deg. C (1290 deg.F) can be achieved.
Good resistance to reducing oxidizing and nitriding atmospheres and to atmospheres which alternates between reducing and oxidizing conditions.
Metallurgical stability in long-term applications at high temperatures.
Typical industrial sectors:
• Steam / hydrocarbon reforming
• Ethylene pyrolsis tubing
• Ethylene dichloride cracking tubes
• Components, eg. Heat exchangers, piping systems, etc
• Steam generators tubing in helium coolant, high temperature reactor systems
