About Nickel

Nickel is known to be an abundant element found in nature. In appearance, pure Nickel is a silvery-white metal. It is sometimes combined with other metals also, like iron, copper, chromium, or zinc, to form alloys. It is one of the members of transition metals and is hard and ductile. Nickel alloys are further utilised to make coins, jewellery, or items like the valves and heat exchangers.

Production Process

  • Production of Nickel via Extractive Metallurgical Process

Nickel is extracted from the ores of Nickel Sulphides. This extraction process is carried out using traditional roasting. The process includes steps like crushing and grinding of the sulphide ore, which is followed by roasting and smelting. The concentrate is further smelted in the Bessemer converter to obtain a mixture called matte. Then, the resulting mixture is electrolytically or chemically refined to separate impurities (other metals) and finally obtain Nickel.
