Nickel and Nickel alloys in the manufacturing of Vessel Heads

Nickel alloys are metals made from the combination of nickel being the primary element with another material. The purpose of this combination is to receive a more desirable outcome of higher strength and corrosion resistance. Many nickel-based alloys have an outstanding performance at temperatures above 1000°C, which offer excellent oxidation and resistance at high temperatures while at the same time maintaining quality weldability, performance and the ability to undergo a change of physical form without breaking. Hence, making them ideal for extremely severe environments.

The following benefits of nickel alloys are crucial for their usage in numerous applications:

  • Resistance to oxidation and carburization
  • Excellent protection from thermal expansion
  • Ideal resistance to corrosion
  • Suitable for use in extreme environments
  • Durable, reliable with a long life span
