Advantages of nickel alloys

Technical characteristic

Modern progress imposes ever more stringent requirements on materials. Heat-resistant metals form the basis of XXI century technology. Nickel alloys have created unique heat-resistant, acid-resistant materials with special properties. Hard and ductile nickel in its pure form is widely used in rods, wires, sheets and tubes. High plasticity allows to make various parts from it by hot and cold deformation. The properties of nickel and nickel alloys give these materials their most valuable properties. Over 3,000 nickel alloys have been patented to date. In the consumption structure, more than 80% of Ni is used for alloys. 20% is used for protective coatings. The food industry, textiles, modern chemistry and electrical engineering are particularly in need of nickel.

Chemical resistance

The advantages of pure nickel allow the production of chemical reactors, tanks, boilers and crucibles with high resistance to corrosion on its base. Nickel is of particular importance in the production of food containers and chemical fittings. Nickel crucibles are widely used in analytical chemistry. Depending on its diameter, nickel tubes are used for the production of condensers, for hydrogen synthesis, for pumping chemicals. Nickel, instruments are indispensable in medicine, in research practice.
Nickel and its alloys play a crucial role in the construction of nuclear boilers. They are used as high-temperature protective cladding that protects uranium rods from corrosion in nuclear reactors.

Electrical qualities

Nickel's virtues have made modern power generation, radar, television, possible. Nickel plates have replaced cadmium plates in neutron beam breakers that generate high-energy neutron pulses. Nickel plates are used in ultrasonic machines as well as in modern telephones. Alloys with manganese additives (manganese nickel) are used in incandescent lamps and gas-tron rectifiers for electrode system holders. Alumel and chromel alloys are the most widely used thermocouple material. With their help it is possible to accurately measure the temperature in a large range in oxidizing environments (up to t ° 1200-1300 ° C), i.e. in industrial processes. Alloys of nickel and copper (copel, constantan) are used for rheostats. They contain 40-50% Ni. The advantages of such materials are undeniable. Their electrical resistance does not change with changes in temperature.

High durability

The advantages of nickel alloys made it possible to create special heat-resistant alloys used in jet engines. Transportation engineering is based on the use of high-strength iron, titanium, chromium-nickel, and other alloys. Although nickel is only the thirteenth most abundant metal in the Earth's crust, it is as important in engineering as iron, aluminum, copper, and other common metals.
