Special Properties for Inconel 690 Alloy
The Inconel 690 alloy has excellent intercrystal corrosion resistance and intercrystal stress corrosion cracking resistance. It is mainly [SCALE STEEL]used as the material of steam generator heat transfer pipe for PWR nuclear power plant.The heat transfer pipe material for PWR nuclear power plant steam generator has undergone a development process, including 304 austenitic stainless steel, 600 alloy, 800 alloy and 690 alloy.Studies on corrosion failure of 600 alloys in service show that intergranular corrosion and intergranular stress corrosion cracking are the main problems.As the material of steam generator heat pipe in PWR nuclear power plant, no damage has been reported since the 690 alloy was put into use in 1990s.
Main applications for Inconel 690 Alloy
Of the pressurized water reactor (PWR) nuclear power plants in China, only Qinshan Phase I uses 800 alloy, and The Qinshan Phase II, Daya Bay and [SCALE STEEL]Lingao nuclear power plants all use 690 alloy as the steam generator heat transfer pipe material.Most of the pressurized water reactor nuclear power plants under construction and planning also adopt 690 alloy as the material of steam generator heat transfer pipe.
