What is Inconel718 ? Inconel718 is an nickel-based superalloy. IN718 has a unique alloy composition that gives it good comprehensive properties. This includes high strength, creep resistance, fatigue resistance, and excellent oxidation resistivity, especially at 650 degrees.

Many components of modern aeroengines are made from IN718, including turbine discs.
In718 is also suitable for use in the nuclear reactor (heat exchanging pipe), sub (propeller blades, quick disengage device, auxiliary propel motor), chemical (vessels), pumps, valves pipe), power (industrialgas turbine), the oil & gas industry (underground pipes, wellhead hardware and torch arm).

Is Inconel Stronger Than Steel?
Each type of stainless steel is different. Different stainless steel varieties have different tensile strength, operating temperatures and resistance to certain corrosion agents. For example, grade316 stainless steel is more resistant to chloride than 304 stainless and has a higher average price.

The tensile strengths of metals can be affected by certain handling and molding procedures. The Inconel 625 “rolled”, tensile strength is 120-160 ksi (827-1103MPa), while the Inconel 625″ solution treated bar is 103-130ksi (714-896MPa).
Both tensile strengths classes are presented in ranges and not in particular numbers. This is because the strength can vary depending on the composition of the ingredients. Even small changes in iron, carbon or nickel content can greatly alter the final product’s strength.

Inconel625 has higher tensile strengths than class 304 stainless and can maintain that strength at higher operating temperatures.

Additionally, Inconel’s melting point is lower than that 304 stainless steel. However, it has a lower operating temperature limit. Inconel is stronger at high temperatures than stainless steel and more resistant to scaling and oxidation.

However, stainless is more resistant than Inconel to some chemicals such as sulfuric acids. It is up to the application that you choose which of these metal alloys.

Inconel alloys are more suitable for heat treatment and other high-temperature processes. The same goes for stainless steel alloys, which are often suitable for aseptic manufacturing and medical applications (or any other application that involves corrosion).
