Nickel Alloy Analysis Testing

A versatile element that can be alloyed with most metals, nickel has high thermal and electronic conductivity, as well as corrosion resistance. With over 30 years’ experience and a state-of-the-art metallurgical laboratory, SGS MSi provides a comprehensive assessment of your nickel base alloy’s composition and performance.

Chemical analysis is valuable for determining whether the manufacturing process will change the structure of nickel alloys and other metals. It is also helpful for pinpointing material flaws that could lead to failure or substandard performance. When your nickel super alloy testing is complete, our chemists deliver a detailed, easy-to-understand report of all findings and recommendations.

An alternative to stainless steel, nickel super alloys possess the oxidation resistance, low thermal expansion and superior heat resistance required for a variety of industrial applications. Popular for the production of gas turbines, engines and other mission-critical products, these alloys include:

  • Alnico
  • Alumel
  • Chromel
  • Ferronickel
  • German Silver
  • Inconel
  • Mu-metal
  • Nichrome
  • Nitinol
  • Supermalloy

SGS MSi Testing partners with clients across the oil & gas, space vehicle, chemical processing, aircraft manufacturing, power generation, pulp & paper, and marine industries to provide the following chemical analysis equipment and capabilities:

  • Alloy Identification/Verification
  • OES Spectroscopy
  • ICP Metal Analysis
  • Leco Analysis (carbon, sulfur, oxygen, nitrogen, hydrogen)
  • Re-melt Capability
  • XRF Analyzer
  • Positive Material Identification Testing
  • Microwave Digestion

To determine which chemical analyses are recommended for your nickel base alloy application, our team of chemists considers usage requirements, sample size and budget. A single-source metallurgical testing facility, we also offer product safety testing, corrosion testing, metal failure testing and hardness testing for alloys and metals of all types.  

SGS MSi’s laboratory performs chemical analysis to ASTM and other industry specifications, and is known for its commitment to timely, professional service. To discuss a project estimate, request an expedited turnaround, or inquire about other metallurgical services, dial 708.343.3444 today.
