The Amazing Role of High-Temperature Nickel Alloys and Stainless Steels for Concentrated Solar Power

Renewable energy will become an essential source of power generation since you can use it time after time. The International Energy Agency (IEA) believes that the use of renewable energy sources will continue to grow at 2.3% every year between 2015 and 2040. In this scenario, the solar thermal power plants benefit from using nickel-based alloys or stainless steel containing nickel manufactured at sand casting foundries.

Differences between Investment Casting and Sand Casting

The sand-casting and investment casting methods are both used for casting ferrous and non-ferrous metal parts. However, the molding process and materials used differ in both scenarios.

Common Types of Nickel Alloys Used for Casting


Foundry companies use nickel-based alloys due to their durability. This particular alloy is known for its corrosion resistance and ability to resist oxidation. One can use the products made of copper-nickel alloy or other nickel-based alloys in harsh environments. The nickel alloys can be divided into the following categories –

  1. Wrought Nickel

In this variant of nickel alloy, the maximum carbon level is 0.15%. It is known for:

How Non-Ferrous Metal Alloy Casting is Performed by a Sand-Casting Foundry

The non-ferrous alloys either contain no iron or have iron in negligible quantity, such as aluminum, brass, copper, titanium etc. The aluminum, magnesium, zinc and copper-based alloys (bronze and brass) are cast in different shapes for industrial applications. A foundry/company may use various methods of casting for the non-ferrous alloys, such as:
