Applications, Specification and Benefits of Al6XN Tubing

AL6XN Tube is known for its amazing corrosion resistance property. Because of its high strength, weldability, formability and magnificent corrosion resistance, it is widely used. Owners can establish an accurate return on investment, as it offers a stable and reliable value. The loss in unplanned downtime, cost of maintenance and product loss with AL-6XN also contribute to this value.

AL-6XN Tubing is commonly used for its unique mechanical properties. It contains density (kg/m3) 8.055 gm/cm3. Because of its Tensile strength and Electrical Resistivity which is 8.89 x 10^ -7 Ω⋅m, AL-6XN Tubing offers satisfactory outcome.

AL-6XN Tubing alloys with Carbon (0.03 max), Phosphorous (0.04 max), molybdenum (6– 7), Silicon (1.00 max), Manganese (2 max), Copper (0.75 max), Chromium (20.0 – 22) and Iron.

Applications of Al6XN Tubing

AL6XN Tube is widely used in petrochemical, power generation, Gas Tube, Heat exchanger, Fluid Tube,

Oil Tube, Boiler. Apart from this, it is also being used in chemical industries, petrochemical, ore, power generation etc. Use of AL6XN Tubing in thermal processing applications is also increasing each passing day. It is used in Heat exchangers, Agitators and mixers, biopharma tanks and fermenters, Reverse osmosis, FGD scrubbers, Distillation columns, desalination, Pressure vessels, Manways, Seawater coolers in nuclear plants and many thermal processing applications.

Special Features of AL6XN Stainless Steel Tubing

AL6XN Stainless Steel Tubing is known for its high strength, excellent corrosion resistance property and many more features which are as follows-

  • AL6XN Gas Tube is one of the best Stainless Steel Tubing which has high strength and rigidity.
  • AL6XN has high weldability, It meets all the welding standards which can be welded using any welding techniques.
  • AL6XN Stainless Steel Tubing has outstanding corrosion resistance property at high temperatures to crevice corrosions.

Why you Should use AL-6XN and its Benefits?

AL-6XN is the primary choice of the customers, because, it is a super austenitic alloy which exhibits excellent resistance. At the time, when a high concentration of chlorides, acidic pH levels, high temperature, and time of contact is introduced to the process, AL-6XN comes in 300 alloys series which include 316L/1.4435 and 304. ASME BPE standards accredited this alloy AL-6XN. The use of this alloy is rapidly increasing, because it offers a good return on investment by decreasing the loss of product and maintenance time repairing and replacing corroded parts. Because of many reasons, AL-6XN alloy attracts too many industries, it exhibits excellent corrosion resistance, cost-effective and easily available. The reason why industries prefer this alloy is that it offers a high return on investment and resistant. In 304 and 316 stainless steel, AL-6XN alloy exhibits strongest corrosion resistance in the forms of the crevice, pitting, and stress corrosion cracking.

  • This alloy is very useful as it is resistant in hot and cold conditions to corrosion from different acids and salt solutions.
  • It provides many cost benefits.

Classifications of AL6XN Tube

AL6XN Seamless and Welded Tubes are classified into followings tubes-

  • AL6XN Welded Tube
  • AL6XN Seamless Tube

Final Take

In today’s market, there are many kinds of super austenitic, nickel-based alloys are available which offers excellent corrosion resistance. But other than corrosion resistance, many other factors should also be kept in mind while selecting such alloys. Good mechanical properties, fabrication characteristics of alloy and commercial availability should also be taken into consideration.
