330 PLATE AND PROCESSED FLAT BAR
Penn Stainless inventory now includes 330 Plate and Processed Flat Bar (Alloy 330 UNS N08330), ideally suited for demanding, high-temperature, high-pressure applications such as chemical and petrochemical processing, thermal processing, ore processing, and power generation.
Alloy 330 is an austenitic, nickel-chromium-iron-silicon alloy that has outstanding resistance to oxidation and carburization up to 2200°F with high strength. The excellent resistance to oxidation and carburization is provided by the high nickel and chromium content of the alloy, further enhanced by its silicon content. Alloy 330’s ultra high nickel content of 34 to 37% also provides high resistance to chloride stress corrosion cracking and embrittlement from the precipitation of sigma phase in most furnace atmospheres. Alloy 330 also has a low coefficient of expansion, excellent ductility, and high strength.
Alloy 330 is extensively used in high temperature environments where resistance to the combined effects of thermal cycling and carburization is necessary. Applications include:
