Philadelphia Forgings supplies forgings in high
quality materials such as nickel-based superalloys. Also known as
high performance alloys, superalloys are valued for their retention
of yield strength during prolonged exposure to high temperatures
as well as their resistance to creep and oxidation. The forgings
available at Philadelphia Forgings can be used for demanding applications
such as turbine-based power generation or aerospace operations.
Philadelphia Forgings is a nationwide supplier
of the following grades of nickel-based superalloy forgings:
Incoloy®. With a high yield strength, Incoloy® is also able to
resist damage by oxidation, carburization, and sulfidation even
in high-temperature environments or in the presence of concentrated
acids. The addition of chromium is responsible for characteristics
such as corrosion resistance; however, it is the nickel base that
imparts ductility that helps many Incoloy® alloy forgings resist
stress cracking and scaling.
Waspaloy®. An age-hardenable material, Waspaloy® provides excellent yield
strength in high temperatures and resists damage by oxidation. Useful
in temperatures up to 1600o F, Waspaloy® forgings are often
used for rotating applications, such as in turbines, and perform
remarkably well in gas combustion environments.
Hastelloy® C, Hastelloy® C-22, Hastelloy® C-276, Hastelloy®X. Hastelloy® is a superalloy known not just for resistance
to heat temperature but also for resistance to corrosion in freshwater
as well as saltwater applications. Some grades of Hastelloy® are known for resistance to stress cracking, pitting, and crevice
corrosion, while others are known for resistance to chloride, acid,
saltwater, and chemical attack.
Properties of Superalloy Forgings
Nickel-based superalloy forgings are valued
for their ability to retain yield strength during exposure to extremely
high temperatures. Additions of elements such as niobium, chromium,
titanium, and aluminum also make alloys such as Incoloy®, Waspaloy®,
and Hastelloy® extremely resistant to oxidation, corrosion,
stress cracking, and creep deformation. Superalloy forgings are
extremely useful in applications that demand high performance but
that also generate a fair amount of heat. Gas-based power generation
uses turbines that rely on forged superalloy components; jet turbines,
similarly, utilize superalloy forgings. Products forged from nickel-based
superalloys can also be found in chemical processing plants, nuclear
reactors, submarines, and large engines, such as those used in rockets.
No matter where in the United States your company
is based, Philadelphia Forgings is proud to supply the high quality
superalloy forged products necessary for demanding applications.
Superalloy forgings represent only a small offering of the many
