A material which is made by 99.96% pure Nickel which also gives elegant polish and shine to its surface is nickel 201 tube. This is a material that offers low electrical resistivity and good corrosion resistance.
These materials are often very well known for resisting alkaline media. In situations such as synthetic fibres, food or caustic alkalis, we make use of this material. It is approved to operate up to 1230° F. It carries the melting point ranging between 2615–2635° F. It improves ductility.
There are tons of industries that make use of alloy 201 tube. Main industries that make use of this materials are chemical processing industries, aeronautics, and electronic companies.
Ni201 condenser tubes is also a catalyst in its usage at heat exchangers, pressure vessels, and various other application that promise longevity and, in those areas, prone to excessive corrosions.

There are a lot of practises to make a nickel 201 seamless tube, and on other hand you can even use seamless tube 201 under certain temperature-based conditions. There are two ways that we categorize out temperature.
One is hot and other is annealing. Under hot temperature circumstances, temperature should range between 1200- and 2250° F. We perform heavy forming for temperature to be above 1600° F. In annealing conditions, it should range between 1300-to-1600° F.

Other than providing lust, shine or polish to the surface, there are many other properties that are exhibited by nickel 201 tubing.
There are mainly 8 equivalencies when it comes to nickel 201. There are industries which require components that can withstand elevated heat. Material used for this purpose is ASTM B163 Seamless tube. Remaining are the equivalents to nickel 201:
These are some most verified and well-known common standards to nickel 201. According to its definition, it ensures that these standards also contain the same number of elements and many other properties which nickel 201 exhibits.
Numerous pros and cons of UNS N02201 welded tube are derived, which is at someplace very advantageous and some place it is not advantageous.
Advantages: One of the prominent advantages of Nickle is its corrosion resistant behaviour. Nickel does not corrode when found exposed in air, water or other harmful chemicals.Another reason being is its high melting point, thereby, making it an ideal material to face high temperatures. Another advantage is its magnetic nature, making it suitable for electric motors and speakers.
Disadvantages: Although Nickel is very affordable at industrial level, but when compared to steel or Aluminium, it is expensive.Also, to enhance the strength and durability, extra steps required for malleability is more complex.
