Nickel Copper Wire:
Nickel copper alloy, sometimes called Cupronickel is basically an alloy of copper which contains nickel and other strengthening materials such as iron and manganese. Because of its fantastic electrode potential, this alloy is used for sea water installations and machines. Nickel wire and nickel alloy are now broadly utilized in manufacturing underwater piping, heat exchangers and condensers for shipping industry.
The primary reason for choosing such nickel copper alloy is the fact that it is highly resistant to corrosion, which is the main reason for metal decay under sea water. As its electrode potential is adjusted to be neutral with regards to the sea water, this alloy can be safely used for those machines and instruments which are used under sea.
There exists a range of different copper nickel alloys that possess different properties and hence are suited to a range of different applications. Some of the better known copper nickel alloys include:
- Copper with 10% nickel
- Copper with 30% nickel
- Copper with 25% nickel with 0.05-0.4% manganese
- Copper with 45% nickel (also known as constantan)
All copper nickel alloys consist of only one phase as the copper nickel binary system exhibits complete solid solubility.
