Nickel alloy pipe grades

Nickel Pipe is used with different applications. The different grades correspond to different compositions of the material such as grades 20, 22, 36, 41 and so on. Different grades of Nickel Pipe are used in different applications. For example, the Nickel Alloy 20 is used in sulphuric acid tankers, heat exchangers, manufacturing of solvent, explosives, synthetic fibers organic chemicals and plastics and in pharmaceuticals widely. The alloy 22 is used mostly in chemical processing, pulp and paper processing industries, pollution control, sulphuric acid containers, waste incinerators and so on. The uses of Nickel 36 are slightly different that it is used in controlled expansion, liquefied gas storage, thermostats rods, thermostat strip, measuring devices, laser components and bimetallic strips.

 High grade metal pipe material such as nickel alloy 41 is used in high end applications. The applications include critical engine components, combustion chamber liners, turbine blades and wheels and structural hardware. In addition to the nickel alloy materials there’s one type that is called pure nickel pipe. This contains more than 99% of nickel where there are traces of other elements mixed for different mechanical properties. The Nickel 200 pipe is a pure nickel pipe and its price depends on the market variables. Manufacturing processes, transportation, availability in the market, demand for the material, supply strength of the material and location of sales can also affect pricing of Nickel 200 pipe. As the different grades of nickel have different applications the pricing of different grades also differ accordingly. Pure nickel pipes are the most expensive because of their high nickel content.
