How to Evaluate Nickel Alloys

Choose machinery made from nickel alloys and stainless steel.

When purchasing nickel alloy bars it is important to keep a checklist of what different traits you need to examine.  Think about the magnetic properties, oxidation and sulfide endurance, the ability to hold up under extreme weather, the hardness of the chosen metal and the rust resistance.   These are all important characteristics to look at when choosing stainless steel or nickel alloys.  But today I am going to be focusing on two qualities that stand out the most: mechanical properties and erosion resistance.

Mechanical Properties

Before putting in an order, talk to a nickel alloy expert about what diverse temperatures the metal performs well in.  You need the product to work effectively whether it is positioned in a room emitting extreme heat or one maintaining consistent, comfortable room temperature.  The operation of the metal should not change.  This is essential to your business operations.  You cannot have machinery suddenly stop functioning due to a temperature change.  A breakdown of equipment puts a dent into your earnings and forces you to use it for repairs.

Erosion Resistance

Using a type of material that cracks, falls apart and rusts is a problem.  These defects affect the entire success rate of a business.  You cannot keep stopping and starting whenever something breaks down. Having a reliable, strong, erosion resistant material keeps your work moving along smoothly.
