Nickel Forged Fittings are ductile and hard in nature. These fittings made from nickel are corrosion resistant. But may undergo oxidation slowly at room temperature. Ferromagnetism is executed in Nickel fittings at room temperature. Stainless steel production extensively requires nickel, so much so that 68% of world’s steel is made using nickel. Other elements are added to nickel, which gives it a combination of ductility, tensile strength and toughness.
Economical extraction of nickel is done from Iron ore limonite, which contain about 1-2% nickel of its total weight. Many biological species require nickel as an important element for their development. Other applications include rechargeable batteries and nickel-hydride batteries. Socket Weld Fittings are monitored under ASME B16.11 production standards. While, Threaded Fittings are monitored under ASME B1.20.1 production standards. Forged Fittings include Unions, Bushings, Elbows and Stub Ends. Nickel 200, Nickel 201 are grades used for the production of nickel forged fittings. Properties such as oxidation resistance, corrosion resistance and carburization resistance are well executed in Nickel forged fittings.
