Sandvik.jpgSANDVIK says adding to its already significant material grade programme, it has introduced Sanicro 60 (commonly known as Alloy 625) in hydraulic and instrumentation (H&I) tubing and heat exchanger form, offering considerable operational benefits particularly for customers installing equipment in harsh environments.

Sandvik says the high strength, austenitic nickel-chromium alloy Sanicro 60 (UNS N06625), exhibits very good resistance to pitting corrosion, intergranular corrosion and is virtually immune to stress corrosion cracking (SCC) in chloride containing environments.

Said to be ideal for use in chemical processing, power generation and high temperature aerospace applications, the material is available in seamless pipe and also as H&I tubing, heat exchanger tubes and high temperature tubes and has a wide operating temperature range from -196˚C to 815˚C (-321˚F to 1500˚F).
