The rise of renewable energies and the enhancement of reliability in nuclear sites highlight materials such as Nitinol (NiTi) for their great reliability over time and their properties which enable a use during maintenance phase or safety devices.
The super-elasticity of NiTi is a competitive advantage on the high-risk sites: access to hard-to-reach areas with small bend radius or small volume.
Memory shape effect is used in order to prevent any risk of explosion, fire or fluid leak.
In the renewable energies field, the control of the temperature is the key to a proper functioning and a reliability of the system.
