Metals: Nickel P-Pellets

Vale (formerly INCO) P-Pellets® are a high purity, non-activated, form of plating grade nickel. The spherical pellets are produced through carbonyl refining, which is well known for producing the highest purity form of nickel available. Vale Inco P-Pellets® are screened to remove over and under-sized pellets. The screened product can be utilized in titanium baskets with standard mesh sizes.

The dissolution characteristics of this high purity, sulphur-free product are similar to those of other non-activated products. It dissolves non-uniformly with the formation of small amounts of metallic residue. Chlorides must be present in the plating bath for this material to dissolve efficiently.

The unique spherical shape of Vale Inco P-Pellets® provides basket loading advantages. It flows easily and pours readily into anode baskets. The pellets pack uniformly and settle well during dissolution. Because it is a flowable product, with relative ease, and devices for automatically filling baskets have been designed for use with this product. It is safe to handle and comes in convenient packaging.

The relatively high packing density and excellent flowability make this product especially useful for nickel plating applications where fully automatic anode basket loading devices can be employed.

Quality Management Systems and Environmental Management Systems for the production and packaging of Nickel P-Pellets® have been registered and comply with the requirements of ISO Standard 9001:2000 and ISO 14001:2004 respectively.

Forms: Spherical pieces of nickel. Size range of 8 to 12 mm diameter (90%).
