Nickel Alloys

Nickel Alloys

Nickel Alloys are renowned for their unique combination of corrosion resistance, high temperature performance, and mechanical properties. These alloys are well-suited for challenging environments where conventional materials may fail. Nickel Alloys are preferred for critical applications across various industries that demand reliability, durability, and performance under extreme conditions.

Key Features of Nickel Alloys:

  • Corrosion Resistance: Nickel Alloys offer exception resistance to a wide range of aggressive chemicals, including acids, chlorides, and sulphides.
  • High Temperature Strength: These alloys maintain their mechanical properties at elevated temperatures, making them suitable for high-temperature applications and thermal cycling.
  • Low Magnetic Permeability: Some Nickel Alloys exhibit low magnetic permeability, making them ideal for applications where magnetic interference must be minimised.
  • Creep and Oxidation Resistance: Selected Nickel Alloys demonstrate good resistance to creep deformation and excellent resistance to oxidation at high temperatures.

Common Applications of Nickel Alloys:

  • Chemical Processing: For valves, pumps, piping systems, and reaction vessels due to their corrosion resistance.
  • Petrochemical Industry: In heat exchangers, columns, reactors for their high temperature strength and corrosion resistance.
  • Oil and Gas Production: For downhole equipment, wellhead components, and valves, offering durability under corrosive fluids and high-pressure conditions.
  • Aerospace and Defence: In rocket engine components, gas turbine parts, and aircraft exhaust systems, where high temperatures and corrosive environments are common.
  • Additional applications include: pharmaceutical and biotechnology processing equipment, waste treatment facilities, power generation components, and marine and offshore environments.
