Vale Nickel Pellets have the lowest metallic impurity level of any commercially available form of nickel. This feature derives from the specificity of the carbonyl refining process by which pellets are produced in Canada. This continuous process is unique in its ability to separate nickel from other elements yielding pellets that are virtually devoid of non-metallics and other subversive elements.
The consistent quality makes Vale Nickel Pellets most suitable for the production of nickel-containing alloys requiring a high-purity charge material. This includes high-nickel alloys and iron-base alloys made to exacting aerospace and electronic industry standards. The exceptionally low cobalt content makes this form attractive for the production of alloys meeting nuclear industry specifications.
The spherical shape and the compact size result in a product of high packing density that reduces furnace backcharging. The flowability of the spherical pellets permits semi- and fully-automated handling operations, such as transfer from bulk storage to weighing and furnace charging stations.
Vale Nickel Pellets are available throughout the world in a variety of convenient packages to satisfy large and small scale production needs.
Quality management systems for the production, packaging and marketing of Vale Nickel Pellets have been registered and comply with the requirements of ISO Standard 9002-94.
