Monel 400 tube fittings and valves are available from our manufacturing facility in Essex.
The Monel Alloy 400 is a nickel and copper allow that offers great properties such as steam and water resistance.
At the same time, this alloy is resistant to caustic and salt solutions which is very helpful for a wide range of industries.
Properties Of Monel 400
What makes Monel Alloy 400 special is the fact that it’s a solid solution that can be hardened only by cold working. The alloy on its own also offers some great features such as a very good strength, weldability that is very good as well as a stellar corrosion resistance.
Moreover, this alloy is particularly good when it comes to resisting to hydrofluoric and hydrochloric acids. Since it has a large amount of copper can be found in this product, you will see that the compound does get attacked with ease by ammonia systems and nitric acids so you have to treat it with extra care.
In addition, this compound has a stellar set of mechanical properties when it comes to low temperatures. The idea here is that as long as you use it at temperatures less than – 1000 degrees F you will have no problem with it. Since the Monel Alloy 400 is low in strength in the annealed condition, a multitude of tempers are used in order to increase the overall strength and make the compound more powerful as a whole.
In what forms can you find the Monel Alloy 400?
The product comes in a variety of forms and all of these retain the properties of this compound. You can find it in bar, pipe, tube, sheet, wire, and fittings. This way you can easily integrate it into many different projects and applications.
Note: Our standard range of instrumentation products are produced from 316 Stainless Steel and are used by customers such as Sealed Air Diversey, Wales & West Utilities and the Amec Foster Wheeler Group.
Monel Alloy 400 offers a wide range of nice characteristics and features:
- Alkalis resistance
- Good mechanical properties at low temperatures
- Sulfuric acid and hydrochloric acid resistance
- Chloride resistance
- Stress corrosion cracking resistance in freshwaters
- Resists to seawater
- Alkaline salt resistance
This product has the following composition: a remainder of Nickel, Ni, 28-34% copper, 2.5% iron, 2% manganese, 0.5% silicon, 0.3% carbon and other compounds including Sulphur that are presented here in a lot smaller amounts.
Uses for Monel 400 tube fittings and valves
Monel Alloy 400 can be used in a wide range of industries and that include the chemical industry among many others. Aside from being a great Chemical plant equipment, it also helps create frames for eyeglasses, musical instruments, aerospace-related items and many others.
Since the MONEL 400 is resistant to salt water, you can easily find it in marine fixtures, fittings, pumps, valves and even piping systems created for marine applications.
In conclusion, MONEL 400 is a great alloy that can be used in a multitude of industries and applications.
