Nickel Pipe is a type of steel pipe used in various industries. Nickel is a highly anti-corrosive material. Nickel is used in industries where the anti-corrosive property is the primary objective. Industries like food manufacturing industries and food processing plants use nickel pipes. Manufacturing of synthetic fibers can also utilize nickel pipes. There are different grades of nickel pipes such as the lower alloy nickel pipes. Commercially pure nickel pipes are very unique. They have very high thermal conductivity and electrical conductivity as well as low gas content and low vapour pressure. Due to these qualities the nickel pipe is used in structural applications where corrosion resistance is needed. The pure nickel pipes can be either hot rolled or cold drawn. Pure nickel pipe has 99.9% pure nickel.
It also contains other materials in trace amounts like silicon, copper, carbon, manganese and iron. There are different shapes and standards of this material and pipes. The pipe standards vary according to the diameter of the pipe. There are also different grades and different schedules and different classes. The pressure classes indicate how much pressure the pipe can withstand in addition to the corrosion resistance properties of nickel. They also have great mechanical properties since this material is solid solution strengthened. They are used in the de-aerated acidic conditions. Price of a nickel 200 pipe varies according to the needs, demands and supply in the market. The applications of this material include chemical plants, power generation plants, food processing plants and structural applications in construction industries.
