Leveraging Excellence: High Nickel Content Steel Alloys in Nicro Consulting (Part 2)

In the world of industrial production, choosing the best material for manufacturing products is a fundamental aspect. Whether it involves creating accessories for heat treatment plants and industrial furnaces or infrastructures for chemical and oil industries, the success of any project fundamentally depends on a meticulous selection of materials.

These materials must not only meet the required quality standards but also adhere to specifications for strength, durability, and performance in high-temperature and high-stress production environments. In this context, high nickel content steel alloys prove to be indispensable allies due to their resistance to wear, corrosion, and high temperatures.


Alloy 800 H is an austenitic nickel-chromium-iron alloy, reinforced with the addition of aluminum, titanium, and other alloying elements such as silicon and manganese. This alloy is characterized by excellent resistance to oxidation and deformation even at temperatures exceeding 600°C (1110°F), as well as good long-term ductility for temperatures below 700°C (1290°F).

Thanks to these characteristics, which prevent it from deforming even when subjected to extreme temperatures and mechanical stresses for prolonged periods, Alloy 800 H is widely used in industries such as chemical, petroleum, and heat treatment. Its resistance to corrosion and carburization makes it ideal for refining processes and for products used in high-temperature and corrosive environments. Typical applications include:

  • Heat exchangers for heaters and coolers;
  • Piping and components for heat treatment plants;
  • High-temperature chimneys and burners;
  • Equipment for gas and oil production;
  • Components for heat supply systems in chemical reactors.


Inconel 617 is a nickel-chromium-cobalt-based superalloy, characterized by high resistance even in highly corrosive environments and at high temperatures. Due to its particular resistance to carburization and oxidation, Inconel 617 is used in a wide range of industrial applications, including:

Selecting the right material can therefore make the difference between the success and failure of an industrial project. In the continuous search for high-performance materials that meet the requirements of strength, durability, and reliability, high nickel content steel alloys like Alloy-800H and Inconel-617 are excellent solutions for a wide range of applications in the chemical, petroleum, energy, marine, and aerospace industries, ensuring a long life cycle even in the most extreme conditions.
