Nickel Pipe is a type of pipe material that is made up of a special nickel alloy. nickel alloys can come in different grades such as 20, 155, 200 and more. Nickel alloys have higher toughness, oxidation resistance, magnetic properties, electronic properties, improved versatility and increased corrosion resistance. One of the special properties of nickel alloys is that they perform under very high temperatures. Usually nickel alloys are used to perform above 1000 degree Celsius. Nickel alloys are also highly available and workable. Nickel Pipe has great ductility. They have a great life span usually ranging between 25 to 35 years. Depending on the application they can last longer. Although nickel alloys are expensive they are very cost-effective given the lifespan.
Nickel alloys are one of the most recycled materials in the world. due to these properties of nickel alloys the nickel pipe is used in various applications. The applications of nickel alloys include food preparation equipment, laboratory equipment, pharmaceuticals, building materials, nuclear power systems, cellphones, medical equipment, transportation, building materials and aircraft and power turbines.
There are some pure nickel pipe materials that stand for very specific purposes. Nickel is resistant to most acids such as hydrochloric and sulphuric acid. It is due to these qualities pure nickel pipes can be used in very harsh environments. Since the pure nickel material comes in Ni 200 its pricing depends according to the needs and the demand and supply in the market. Nickel 200 pipe can be sold at different prices in the market depending on the dimensions quality grade and the requirements of the applications.
