Nickel Alloy Pipes
Nickel is a transition metal, which is hard and ductile. Nickel pipes are corrosion resistant, but can form oxide slowly at room temperatures. These pipes are ferromagnetic at room temperature. Nickel is used in the production of steel. About 68% of world’s stainless steel uses nickel. Nickel is the element used in alloys to give them additional tensile strength, toughness and ductility.
Economically the nickel used in these pipes is sourced from iron ore limonite. Limonite contains 1-2% nickel of its total weight. Nickel is also important for many biological species. It is used in re
