Alloys: Operating Temperature Range for Industrial Applications

Alloy Engineering was founded in 1943 to supply quality alloy fabrications for high‐temperature industrial applications. Since then, Alloy Engineering has built a reputation for our ability to design and fabricate application-specific, cost-effective equipment for use up to 2200°F and even higher, in certain situations.

The chart below provides a materials creep stress at various temperatures between 900°F – 2200°F.  The chart shows the stress in a material that will cause a 1% permanent deformation of the material if it is exposed to that stress for 10,000 hours.  Alloy Engineering uses this information as a basis for much of our design work. For example, if we’re working with stainless steel and want to know how much stronger various alloys will be at a given temperature, the data from this chart helps us identify that information.

Operating Environment

Alloy Engineering works with high-temperature alloys and corrosion-resistant alloys to perform in our customers’ processes that are highly corrosive, high temperature, or both.  Our engineering team analyzes and evaluates the many factors influencing long-term component performance in such hostile, industrial environments.

With a thorough understanding of the effect of high temperatures on material performance, we find solutions for our customers that best meet the requirements of their unique applications and achieve the lowest cost per hour of operation.

Processes that operate under these conditions include:

  • Carburizing
  • Annealing
  • Nitriding
  • Tempering
  • Pickling
  • Sintering
  • Reheat
  • Thermal heat transfer
  • Recuperation
  • Scrubbing
  • Hardening
  • Catalytic Processes
