An engineered high temperature resistant steel
- Excellent high temperature stability and strength
- Very oxidation and carburization resistant to 2100°F
- Good resistance to thermal shock and quenching
- Chemistry and specifications of alloy 330
- Alloy 330 set screw features and benefits
Alloy 330 set screws are specifically designed for high temperature furnace applications such as vacuum furnaces, heat treating and brazing applications. The most prized trait of alloy 330 is its ability perform under cyclic conditions of temperature extremes from heating and cooling; as well as in alternate carburizing and oxidizing atmospheres. An austenitic nickel-chromium-iron-silicon alloy, 330 set screws also offer industry a low coefficient of expansion, excellent ductility, and high strength.
Benefits & Corrosion Resistance
- Resistance to thermal shock from repeated quenching
- High level of resistance to oxidation and carburization
- Ability to handle thermal cycling
- Provides resistance to scale formation up to about 2000°F
- Good resistance to nitrogen-containing atmospheres where the oxygen content is low
- High nickel content of 34-37% provides high resistance to chloride stress corrosion cracking and embrittlement
Applications for Alloy 330 Set Screws
- Alloy 330 set screws are often used in furnaces, thermal processing and heat treating applications.
- Gas turbine components and boiler fixtures used in power generation often use Alloy 330 set screws.
- Because of its resistance to nitrogen rich environments, Alloy 330 set screws are used extensively for components handling cracked ammonia.

Alloy 330 Screw Types: 12 Point Screws, Button Head Cap Screws, Flat Head Screws, Hex Head Cap Screws, Pan Head Screws, Set Screws, Socket Head Cap Screws, Tamper Resistant Security Screws, Torx Screws, Vented Screws
Alloy 330 set screws are unique in that they have no screw head, meaning that they have no protruding part past the threaded shaft. They are thread only and are available with a socket or slotted driver insert at one end. Set screws are used to secure an object within or against another object. Typically they secure a rotating part such as a gear or shaft. Alloy 330 set screws are driven through a threaded hole in the rotating part until it is tight against the inner object, preventing from moving relative to the outer object. Set screws are available with various points depending on the application.
This is the most commonly used set screw and is identified by a cup-shaped indentation on one end. Alloy 330 cup points are typically used for a quick, semi-permanent or permanent applications where it is acceptable to cut the cup point edge of the screw.
A cone point is easily identifiable by its sharp cone-shaped point – just like an ice cream cone. Alloy 330 cone point set screws deliver the strongest clamping force due to the deep penetration of the point. As a result they are used for permanent assembly.
The cheapest and simplest of the set screw point styles, this screw has a flat surface on the bottom of the screw. This type is used when you need the ability to frequently change parts and require minimal shaft deformation.
Alloy 330 (UNS N08330) is best known for its extreme high temperature strength and stability. One of the most unique attributes of Alloy 330 is its ability to handle cyclic temperature changes from extreme high temperatures to cooling phases, as well as in oxidation-rich environements.
