Nickel Chromium Alloys for Electric Resistance Heating (10041)

By John E. Milne and Roger Giler, 1990. Materials for electric heating depend on an inherent resistance to the flow of electricity to generate heat and the nickel-chromium alloys are widely used. Specifically, this report looks closely at: alloys and properties; types of resistance elements; heater design concepts; terminals, leads and connections; how electric resistance alloys work; effect of processing; nickel-chromium alloy heating element design; failure analysis; and basic calculations.
