Nickel Alloy 400, Monel® 400
Since 1985 Continental Steel and Tube has distributed Nickel, Titanium, Aluminum, Stainless Steel, Carbon Steel, Alloy, Copper, Brass & Bronze.
Nickel alloys are a combination of nickel and a variety of other metals to create a strong, oxidation-resistant product with a lifespan of 25 to 35 years on average. Monel 400 is a nickel-copper alloy of about 67% Ni and 23% Cu. Valued for its high strength and corrosion-resistant properties, Monel 400 is available from Continental Steel in multiple forms for use in a variety of end uses.
Why Monel® 400?
Monel 400 (also known as alloy 400) is an attractive option for industries where corrosion resistance is of the highest priority.
Monel 400 is resistant to both steam and seawater as well as highly caustic solutions such as sulfuric, hydrochloric, and hydrofluoric acids when they are deaerated. It exhibits excellent weldability and can withstand very large amounts of pressure and weight. The alloy has great mechanical properties at subzero temperatures, and with a melting point of 2370° – 2460° F, products can be used at temperatures up to 1000° C.
Monel 400 works in a range of acidic and alkaline environments and features excellent ductility and thermal conductivity. Its properties make it perfect for heavy-duty applications and those that require a high melting point and toughness under the harshest conditions.
Monel 400 Applications
Monel 400 is essential in heat exchangers, chemical plant equipment, and boiler feeders. It is ideal in wire or rod form and is excellent for trolling wire due to its resistance to seawater. Monel 400 provide superior quality for different types of mechanical, and general engineering applications. Its toughness lends itself to use in nuclear power plants, mining, cement, and the oil and gas industry.
Industrial applications include:
- Heat exchangers
- Crude oil distillation towers
- Propeller and pump shafts
- Oil refinery crude columns
- Pickling bat heating coils
- Feedwater and steam generator tubing
- Valves, pumps, fittings, and fasteners
- Crude petroleum stills
- Sulfuric acid and hydrofluoric acid alkylation plants
- Deaerating heaters
- Gasoline and freshwater tanks
- Chemical and hydrocarbon processing equipment
- Chlorinated solvents
- Brine heaters and seawater scrubbers in tanker inert gas systems
- Metal instruments
Monel 400 is corrosion resistant to most salts, water, alkalis, organic substances, food products, and atmospheric conditions at both normal and elevated temperatures.
