Other Environments

Molten Chloride Salts

HAYNES® 556® alloy exhibits reasonable resistance to neutral NaCl-KCl-BaCl2 type heat-treating salts at temperatures up to 1550°F (845°C) based upon actual field tests in a molten salt pot heat treating facility. Coupons were exposed for 30 days.

Phosphorus-Bearing Combustion Environment

Based upon field tests performed in the combustion chamber of a fluid bed dryer used to dry sodium tripolyphosphate compounds, HAYNES® 556® alloy exhibits very good resistance to corrosion caused by formation of low-melting point eutectics involving phosphorus. Samples were exposed 30 days at a temperature of about 1475°F (800°C).
