Properties of Nickel-based Super Alloys
OPEC+ is likely to stick to its plan for a small increase in oil production in May despite a surge in oil prices caused by the Ukraine crisis and calls from consumer countries such as the United States for more supply.
Several oil consumers, including the US, have urged producers to boost output further, for the crude price has hit its highest level since 2008 of more than $139 this month. But major OPEC producers including Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates did not raise their output targets, and other countries like Russia avoided talking about the subject of Ukraine.
OPEC+ is made up of the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) and the oil-producing Allies which is led by Russia. Since August 2021, OPEC+ has been sticking to its plan to increase production by 400,000 b/d per month, which will rise slightly to 432,000 b/d from May 1st.
This increase did not mean OPEC+’s concession to consumer countries demanding more oil, but an outcome of an internal recalculation of reference production levels, raising quotas for Saudi Arabia, Russia, Iraq, the United Arab Emirates, and Kuwait.
The supply and prices of many other products in global market like the Nickel-based Super Alloys will continue to be influenced by the oil supply shortage.
The creep rupture strength can be a good indication that the creep rupture
life/γ-initial fraction diagram of each alloy series is different, but each
series may have a maximum value or exceed 75% (volume) in the vicinity. This
means that the creep rupture life depends partly on the hardening of the solid
solution and partly on the hardening of the γ-prime precipitation. When Cr in
γ'is replaced by W and Ta, the maximum solid solution hardening will be
achieved. In addition, in order to obtain maximum precipitation hardening, a
gamma prime fraction will be obtained. In some Ni-based superalloys, the
γ-primary fraction of the actual alloy at 1000ºC may be less than the design
Tensile properties The tensile properties of sample solutions aged under
various conditions at 900ºC have been observed. Obviously, these changes can be
well approximated by the linear function of the gamma prime fraction. The
results obtained from other series of alloys show that the linearity is
maintained in the range of γ-prime fraction of 50% to 80% (volume), which is
different from the case of creep rupture strength. The effect of solution
temperature is also linear. A higher solution temperature gives a higher yield
strength. The lower the solution temperature, the greater the tensile
elongation, but this trend no longer works below a certain temperature. The
solution treatment below 1080ºC has no beneficial effect on the tensile
elongation. For the effect of solid solution hardening and precipitation
hardening, it is obvious that W is the most effective method of solid solution
hardening, and Ta (a γ-primer forming agent) is less effective than W as a solid
solution hardening element.
The crucible test was used to evaluate the resistance to corrosion
resistance. A piece of alloy (diameter 6-8 mm, height 3-5 mm) in a salt mixture
(Na2SO4-25%NaCl) was kept in the air at 900ºC for 20 hours. After all the scale
is removed, the resistance is quantitatively determined by the metal loss. In
terms of morphology, thermal corrosion can be divided into three types. Type I:
Corrosion layer composed of Cr sulfide, Ni sulfide and porous oxide, Type II:
Thin and compact Cr2O3 corrosion layer, there is a small amount of sulfide or no
sulfide in the matrix, Type III: It is oxidized by three layers Corrosion layer
composed of Cr2O3, TiO2 and Al2O3 from the outside to the inside, a small amount
of chromium-rich sulfide is dispersed in the matrix. Regression analysis was
carried out on 42 alloys that produced Type I corrosion. The results show that
Hf-doped alloys with high Cr and Ti content (the most preferred in γ-primary
precipitation hardening alloys), and the addition of W, Ta or Mo is an essential
element to increase high-temperature strength. Extremely harmful to thermal

Prior to the impact of COVID-19 on the chemicals and materials industry and the price of the Nickel-based Super Alloys, many industry observers expected low to flat growth in 2021 in all regions outside Asia, with many countries seeing slower growth compared to recent years. Operational excellence has long been a hallmark of the Nickel-based Super Alloys chemical industry, and many companies are financially able to withstand short-term dips in end-market demand due to rapid leverage from reduced capex on hand.
The analysis shows that, whatever the final course of the pandemic, we can expect the inevitable long-term effects. Workplaces are expected to slowly return to pre-COVID-19 practices. Companies investing in enterprise-wide digital initiatives saw these "payoffs" in the early pandemic environment. For more information about Nickel-based Super Alloys, please feel free to contact us.
