Expensive nickel alloys

 For most customers, price is an issue that must be considered when purchasing.



For example, for the same number of specifications, a seamless pipe will be more expensive than a welded pipe, and then the purchaser may choose the cheaper welded pipe, considering the budget and usage requirements.


Similarly, when a customer chooses between stainless steel and nickel alloy material, many customers will choose stainless steel due to the price difference, the requirements of the usage environment, etc.



So what kind of material is nickel alloy?


Nickel alloys are alloys based on Ni-Co-Mo and have high strength, oxidation resistance, corrosion resistance, and other comprehensive performance under the high temperature of 650℃~1000℃.


The added elements in nickel alloy.


Cr, Ni, Si, S, P, Mn, C, Ti, Mo, V, Nb, Co, Al, Cu, W, Mg, Re, Zr, B, La-based elements, etc.



According to the material, nickel alloys can be divided into the following categories.


Alloy: 20, 28

Alloy: 800, 825, 926

Alloy: 600, 6001, 624, 718

Alloy: 400, K500

Alloy: B, B2, C, C276, C2000


Products that can be made from nickel alloy.






5.Seamless tube/pipe

6.Welded tube/pipe


8.Pipe fitting


Applications of nickel alloy products.


1.Marine: Marine structures in the marine environment, desalination, seawater farming, seawater heat exchange, etc.

2.Environmental protection: flue gas desulphurization device for thermal power generation, wastewater treatment, etc.

3.The energy field: nuclear power generation, comprehensive utilization of coal, tidal power generation, etc.

4.Petrochemical field: oil refining, chemical equipment, etc.

5.Food industry: salt making, soy sauce brewing, etc.



In the above fields, ordinary stainless steel products are not competent, because nickel alloy products have stronger corrosion resistance, heat resistance, and wear resistance. Therefore, nickel alloy products are indispensable and irreplaceable in engineering construction and other projects. Of course, this is also the reason for their relatively high price.
