What is Hast X material?

What is Hast X material?

Hastelloy X is a nickel base alloy that possesses exceptional strength and oxidation resistance up to 2200°F. It has also been found to be exceptionally resistant to stress-corrosion cracking in petrochemical applications. The alloy has excellent forming and welding characteristics.

Is Hastelloy X Magnetic?

No, Hastelloy X or Alloy X is Non-Magnetic.

What is AMS 5536?

Hastelloy X per AMS 5536 is a nickel-chromium-iron-molybdenum alloy with outstanding strength and oxidation resistance at temperatures to 2200°F (1200°C). Matrix stiffening provided by the molybdenum content results in high strength in a solid-solution alloy having good fabrication characteristics.

How hard is Hastelloy?

Nickel & cobalt base corrosion, temperature and wear-resistant alloys, such as HASTELLOY C276, are classified as moderate to difficult when machining, however, it should be emphasized that these alloys can be machined using conventional production methods at satisfactory rates.

What is the size of Hastelloy X honeycomb?

Figure 1 shows some typical honeycomb made of Hastelloy X (AMS 4436) used in high-temperature applications. The honeycomb cell size used in such applications typically varies from about 0.031 to 0.125 in. (0.8 to 3 mm) diameter. The depth of finish-machined honeycomb varies from less than 0.062 to 0.5 in. (1.5 to 13 mm) or greater.

What is the purpose of a honeycomb structure?

A honeycomb structure serves as an excellent gas flow seal and a sacrificial wear-surface to rotating turbine blades in high-temperature turbines. Achieving the ideal honeycomb construction requires careful attention to the amount and placement of brazing filler metal and brazing time and temperature.

How are honeycombs used in X-ray?

Honeycombs and honeycomb materials are used to fabricate… X -ray instruments and X -ray systems use penetrating X -rays or gamma radiation to capture images of the internal structure of a part or finished product. The density and composition of the internal features being scanned alter the intensity…

What is the difference between Hastelloy® and X?

Hastelloy® X is a grade of Hastelloy® which is a nickel-molybdenum alloy. There are many different grades of Hastelloy®, which includes X. Grades of Hastelloy® have each been optimized for a specific purpose. Molybdenum makes Hastelloy® harder and stronger at high temperatures.
