A mineral for all seasons
KCI's James Chater and Micheal van Wijngaarden consider the outlook for nickel alloys and reflect on applications that are likely to drive future growth. This survey examines recent trends, compares supply and demand, identifies new and growing applications and describes some of the many ingenious new alloys that have recently been developed for increasingly aggressive environments. ...
Copper-nickel alloys, properties and applications
The purpose of this publication is to discuss typical applications for copper-nickel alloys and the reason for their selection. The two main alloys contain either 10 or 30% nickel , with iron and manganese additions. ...
Devilish cunning: how nickel is holding its own in an uncertain market
Early in 2010, it looked at though demand for nickel would once again outstrip production. But a slow-down in the Chinese economy, along with worries about sovereign debt in Europe and fears that the “recovery” may be sputtering, has created short-term uncertainty. However, there can be no doubt about nickel’s long-term viability and indeed the metal continues to find new uses, reported James Chater at the end of the year. ...
Nickel containing materials in flue gas desulphurization equipment
This aticle first reviews the typical flue gas desulphurization process and the types of corrosion that can occur. The suitability of nickel materials is then considered. Tips are also provided on how to avoid common problems. ...
Selection guidelines for corrosion resistant alloys in the oil and gas industry.
Bruce Craig discusses the selection of CRAs for the production and transport of corrosive oil and gas. ...
