Nickel Pipe Fittings are hard and ductile. These pipe fittings are corrosion resistant. But at room temperature oxidation occurs on the surface of these pipe Fittings. These pipe fittings execute ferromagnetism at room temperature. Nickel is extensively used in the production of stainless steel. So much so that, 68% of the world’s stainless steel uses nickel for its production. When added with alloys nickel gives additional tensile strength, ductility and toughness.
Nickel used in these pipe fittings are economically extracted from Iron ore Limonite. About 1-2% of Limonite is Nickel content. Nickel also plays an important role in the development of many biological species. Rechargeable batteries and nickel metal hydride batteries make use of Nickel. Petrochemical industry, chemical industry, power generation, coal and gas industries make use of Nickel Pipe fittings. Pipe fittings come in types like Tees, Elbows,Reducers, Cross, Stud End, Pipe Cap and Bend. Grades such as Nickel 200, and Nickel 201 are commercially produced for many applications. These grades execute properties like high temperature resistance, oxidation resistance, excellent corrosion resistance and carburization resistance.
