Inconel Balls

Uses:
Inconel balls, can be made from a variety of Inconel alloys. Inconel alloys are a nickel base with chromium and iron. Many Inconel alloys were developed for specific applications. Inconel balls can be made from these various alloys to satisfy the need for mechanical properties at high temperatures and corrosion resistance to certain chemicals often at elevated temperatures. Inconel alloys generally have excellent creep and rupture strength and high tensile and yield strengths especially at elevated temperatures.  Inconel balls are made for use in jet engine applications where high temperatures exist. Inconel balls and seats have been used by NASA on the space shuttle launch pads. Inconel balls are also made for valves and pumps and other fluid handling equipment when corrosion resistance is required.

Corrosion Resistance:
Inconel alloy balls are often used when the corrosion requirements are too severe for the common stainless steels available. Inconel alloys have excellent resistance to hot sulfuric acids, other oxidizing acids, and sea water. Inconel balls have been made from Inconel Alloy 600, Inconel 625, Inconel Alloy718, and Inconel X750.
