Thread: TIG Welding Ni200

  1. #1

    Default TIG Welding Ni200

    Has anyone here ever TIG welded Ni200 (Pure Nickel)? One of the things I hope to be able to do is tack weld Ni200 bolts to 24awg plates.

    I-Mig 160, I-Mig 200, or a MTS 160

    What are pure nickle bolts used for and where would you get them ?

    Nickle nuts and bolts hold up good in stuff like caustic soda . the rod to weld with is sorta hard to find had some brackets break in my hot caustic washing tank and mig welded with standard mig wire nad lasted abut 2 weeks before breaking again used Nickel Filler Metal 61 rod and haven't broke yet

    I get the nickel bolts from mcmaster. I use them in hydrogen generators. Electrolisist (yea I cant spell) is hard on the metal and nickel holds up very well.

    There is a TIG filler. It is $$$ and do not recall the name. Will see if I can find it. I think it was mentioned on the forum, I went for get some and changed my mind.

    I have used 316L and better with great success with hydrogen generators. Have not done one in years, might do it again if gas keep going up. Last one the check valve failed (there was a bang and repair work required), but gas prices were back down so I didn't repair it.

    Actually, I am not too interested in the automotive use of HHO. I am (or was) working for a company out of CA that was focused on large generators. I designed stuff for them, to include 120/240 volt HHO cells. The type of cells I designed are called shim cells. They are more efficient than normal dry cells.

    Usually we use 316L for the cells. However I have been playing with Ni200 as it offers less resistance than 316L and lasts longer. Only down side is the cost.

    Well, the auto side, the 230 miles to a tank jumped to almost 300 miles to a tank. So I might go back there or go diesel on new truck.

    So you are using AC 110/220 to make yours? Feel free to PM info, or maybe get something going in the members area is not an NDA issue.

    No NDA issues as the company defaulted on the contract.... which sucked in one way (money) but I was glad in another (freedom).

    Anyways, HHO does work with autos but the computers can be a real pain to work around. It works better on Diesels, at least the older ones. Not sure about the newer ones as they are a lot more computer controlled..... On large generators we were seeing 30% increase in run times with about a 1 to 1 ratio of engine size to LPM of HHO. The more HHO the more run time. The reason we were doing 120v/240v rectified is for larger volumes of gas. One of the guys I was working with is still trying to cut a deal with a few different companies, but I am not too hopeful.

    Truck was 1994 so no problem there. I have built 1 dual efie board for a fellow some time back using a PIC chip to work around sensors. Has been some time.

    Here is what she has .125 x 36" C-276 might be to large in dia not sure of your machine or application.i know she has some 1/8" nickle stick rod.

    Here is a link to the tig rod specs

    This was it (see link below). Price was not bad actually, it was shipping was more than the price and they now (I believe) do USPS, not that it helped a lot. Was getting them just to have them and passed.

    No, but you have schematics for it? I did this like 3-4 years ago for a guy. Per his specs. I probably still have the eagle cad project somewhere. Might not have a PIC, but I normally slide one in there somewhere

    What percentage of it's output did the generator use in making the HHO ?

    Probably somewhere. I use to sell those boards is why I asked. I use to build a lot of PWM's as well.

    Yea, you just brought up a reminder/problem. The 1994 is now a 2001, it will need one to offset for the sensors I bet. I have tons of stainless, maybe time to build another one and better check valve this time. Stuff is a pain to cut though.
