Whether in its pure form or alloyed with other metals and alloys, Nickel has made enormous contributions to modern society and will continue to provide materials for an even more demanding future.
Nickel is a versatile metal that will alloy with almost any other metal. Between nickel and copper, there is complete solid solubility. Many alloy combinations are feasible due to the wide solubility ranges between iron, chromium, and nickel.
Since the start of humanity, nickel has been employed in alloys. According to chemical tests, weapons, tools, and coins have all been shown to contain nickel in varying levels.
Applications and Characteristics of Nickel Alloys
Nickel and Nickel Alloys are utilized in a wide range of applications, with the bulk of them requiring corrosion and/or heat resistance. Here are a few examples:
- Gas turbines for airplanes
- Power plants that use steam turbines
- Applications in medicine
- Systems for nuclear power
- Industries of chemistry and petrochemistry
Nickel Alloy Pipe
Nickel 200 Pipe is produced from a commercially pure nickel grade. This is a wrought product with exceptional corrosion resistance and excellent strength. Electrical resistance is likewise very low in this substance. Kalpataru is a major producer and supplier of Nickel Alloy Products in a wide range of sizes and types. The substance is resistant to a variety of chemicals, particularly hydroxides. ASTM B161 and B622 are the specifications for Nickel 200 Seamless Pipe, with diameters varied according to ASTM, ASME, and API requirements.
There are round and hydraulic pipes with nominal bore sizes ranging from 15 inches to 150 inches. The material has a melting temperature of 1446 degrees Celsius, making it suitable for use as an exhaust pipe and heat exchanger pipe. The yield strength of the material is poor when compared to stainless steels with minimum yield strengths of 148 MPa and tensile strengths of 462 MPa.
Nickel 201 Pipes are strong and long-lasting, thanks to a careful machining technique that prevents damage during manufacturing and subsequent use. Equipment Manufacturing, Mining, Oil Refineries, Chemical Manufacturing, Metal and Steel Manufacturing, Transportation service providers, and Construction organizations all places where Nickel 201 Pipes are used. They can also be used in power plants, medicines, and other industries.
What are Nickel ASTM B161 200 Sheets and Plates
ASTM B161 Ni200 is a ferromagnetic alloy that maintains strength across a wide temperature range. It has good mechanical qualities and is resistant to corrosion and oxidation in high temperatures. It can be used in a wide range of temperatures and has excellent corrosion resistance.
Nickel 200 has great resistance to reducing chemicals, alkaline mediums, and good electrical conductivity, as well as oxidation resistance, pitting strength, stress crack corrosion resistance, and exceptional toughness. For the production of Plates & Sheets, we select the finest grade alloy after rigorous testing.
Our team of specialists, who are well qualified, talented, and experienced professionals, is constantly supervising and testing Nickel 200 Sheet Plate. They verify Plates for quality and all critical characteristics, as well as execute a variety of tests. Mechanical tests, positive material identification tests, hardness tests, intergranular corrosion tests, flaring tests, pitting resistance tests, flattening tests, spectral analyses, and destructive tests are all conducted by our quality testing lab. All of these tests ensure that Nickel 200 Sheet Plate is of high quality.
ASTM B162 Nickel 201 Plate
At varying temperatures and concentrations, Nickel 201 Plates have remarkable resistance to caustic alkalies. Nickel 201 Sheets are substantially the same as Nickel 200 Sheets, but with a reduced Carbon content to prevent embrittlement by intergranular carbon at temperatures over 315 degrees Celsius (600 Degree F). Nickel 201 Coils have a lower carbon concentration, which decreases hardness and makes them ideal for cold-formed products. Alloy 201 Sheets are economically pure wrought solid solution strengthened materials with outstanding mechanical characteristics across a wide temperature range and excellent resistance to various corrosives, especially hydroxides.
Alloy 201 Coils are frequently used in the manufacture of soap, viscose rayon, reactors and vessels, and the production of benzene, methane, and ethane. Aerospace and military, as well as food processing, are some of the other uses for Nickel UNS N02201 Plates.
Nickel Seamless Tubes
If no carbonaceous elements come into touch with nickel 201 after prolonged exposure to heat, it will not create graphite. However, at temperatures exceeding 315°C (600°F), sulfur compounds cause intergranular embrittlement, hence machining fluids and external sources of sulfur must be avoided to avoid damage during manufacture and subsequent service.
Nickel 201 High-Pressure Tube has excellent corrosion resistance as well as resistance to caustic soda. Nickel 201 seamless tube generates an oxide film when exposed to caustic soda, which protects it in this circumstance. As a result, it is commonly utilized in caustic soda applications. Nickel Alloy 201 Tubes are utilized in a variety of applications, including caustic evaporators, plater bars, combustion boats, and electronic components.
Nickel 200 tubes are wrought nickel grade CP or commercially pure. Nickel tubing offers a number of advantageous qualities, including ductility and mechanical properties. Furthermore, the ASTM B725 Nickel 200 Welded Tube has excellent malleability due to its physical characteristics, which include the alloy’s magnetic and magneto-resistive properties, as well as its thermal and electrical conductivities. This implies that the same alloy that is used to make ASTM B161 Alloy 200 Seamless Tubing may also be used to make fine wire.
When exposed to a de-aerated acid, Nickel 200 Tubing has greater corrosion resistance. The alloy’s low gas content and low vapor pressure, as well as its excellent thermal and electric conductivities, are among its other characteristics. All hot and cold working techniques may be used to manufacture Nickel Alloy 200 Tubes. Because of the cold drawing technique, Nickel 200 Cold Drawn Tube has a much greater tensile strength.
