Nickel Alloy Tube/Pipe
Nickel alloys are some of the most useful materials for manufacturing technically superior pipes and tubes for industrial applications. Their inherent properties make them viable for a wide range of uses. Nickel alloy is formed by combining nickel with other metals, commonly titanium, copper, aluminum, iron, and chromium. Nickel's high degree of corrosion resistance is due to the fact that it is a relatively noble metal within the galvanic electrochemical series of metals. Adding chromium, molybdenum, copper and other elements to the alloys gives them an even higher resistance to oxidation and corrosion which makes it possible to use them in a wider range of applications. Approximately 3,000 nickel-based alloys are in use, forming products for numerous industries. Roughly 90% of all new nickel sold every year is used to create alloys. The most popular one is stainless steel, which accounts for approximately two-thirds of new nickel alloys produced.
As nickel alloys are so ductile, they are very effectively machined to produce pipes and tubes, while retaining strength. Nickel alloys are exceptionally corrosion-resistant and can be used in high-temperature environments. Seamless tubes and pipes made of corrosion-resistant nickel alloys are the first choices for a lot of applications due to their excellent resistance to various acids (sulphuric acid, hydrochloric acid, phosphoric acid) and alkaline solutions. This makes them good for use in heat exchangers in chemical processing, for example, which relies on tubing that can withstand both the hot and corrosive environment. Nickel-based tubes and pipes are also used in steam generators, aircraft systems, and in oil and gas extraction. To meet the demand for these high-quality products, there are quite a few variants of nickel alloy pipes and tubes available on the market.
Huzhou Gaolin Stainless Steel Tube Manufacture Co., Ltd. is a famous nickel alloys tube manufacturers and nickel alloys pipe suppliers, specializing in all grades and forms of nickel alloys tube and pipe, including 600 / N06600, 800 / NO8800, 625 / N06625, 800H, 825, N08825, N08811 pipe/tube.
Many chemical and petrochemical processors utilize nickel alloy tubes for their process monitoring and control applications, thanks to its corrosion resistance and ability to perform reliably in harsh environments and elevated temperatures.
Seamless nickel alloy pipe provides safe interconnections of remote hydrogen storage and dispensers with only two connections in each tube-run: one at the source and one at the dispenser.
Firefighter Air Replacement Systems (FARS), an emerging technology that allows firefighters to replenish self-contained breathing apparatuses, utilize seamless nickel alloy tubes to connect remote breathing air-filling stations to an exterior connection panel—providing critical monitoring and breathing air supplies.
Nickel alloy tubes are used for the purpose of seawater cooling, firefighting, and pneumatic and chiller system, bilge and ballast, and sanitary. They are also found to be usable for the cargo tank heating pipes and feed line to the desalination plants.
No doubt nickel alloy is into the thermal desalination plant is very well established alloys. In MSF desalination, nickel alloy tube is used commonly for the recovery section and heat rejection and in brine heaters. Now, for MED, nickel alloy tubing is used for the evaporator section.
Nickel alloy pipes and components can be easily used in the steam turbine condenser and oil coolers. Also, it is used at the greater pressure pre-heaters at the fossil fuel power and nuclear plants and in the auxiliary cooling system. They can also be used easily in conveying the clean seawater, and brackish water. Nickel alloy tube is also offering greater benefits in marine renewable energy that tidal devices, wind farms, and waves.
Nickel alloy condenser, nickel alloy tube sheets, heat exchangers, fittings, water boxes, piping, and pumps are a few essential components of the good quality seawater system design.
Nickel alloy is antimicrobial. So, viruses, fungi, and bacteria can’t survive easily on the surface of the nickel alloy pipe product.
