Nickel is a naturally occurring metallic element with a silvery-white, shiny appearance. It is the fifth-most common element on earth and occurs extensively in the earth’s crust and core. Nickel, along with iron, is also a common element in meteorites and can even be found in small quantities in plants, animals and seawater.
Application Note: Determination of Nickel alloys with OE750
Nickel will alloy readily with many other metals, including chromium, iron, molybdenum and copper. This allows for a wide variety of alloys that demonstrate outstanding resistance to corrosion and high-temperature scaling, exceptional high-temperature strength and other unique properties, such as shape memory and low coefficient of expansion.

The OE750 is ideal for the analysis of nickel and nickel alloys. With a new detector technology the OE750 provides excellent analytical performance enabling the instrument to analyze all types of nickel alloys, monitoring the nitrogen content during casting processes, to determine other trace elements like lead and tin and of course to deliver trustable results on the main alloying elements.
