NICKEL END CAPS

Nickel end caps are used to close the ends of pipes or tubes. They are usually installed on the bottom of vessels and containers or at the end of a pipeline systems with high internal pressure. Their shape is crucial, as the dome of the cap allows proper distribution of stresses caused by internal pressure cummulating at the end of the pipeline.
Nickel end caps are available in multitude of shapes: flat, cone, ellipsoidal or disc-shape, diffusion end caps, not to mention butt-welded ones and with various dome shapes.

 

Use of nickel end caps and their shapes:

  • flat end caps are needed to close up the connection of the pipeline with a neutral pressure in the system;
  • conical end caps are used in low pressure or unpressurized reservoirs;
  • ellipsoidal end caps are applicable in high pressure containers, as they show good mechanical properties and stiffness;

We offer nickel end caps in any size, wall thickness and external diameter. All products we offer are certified to the applicable ASTM and MSS SP-43 specifications.

For our regular customers we keep stock levels to provide fast delivery of replacement and wear items.
