Monel wire offers significant resistance to corrosion due to sea water, salt and caustic solutions at the elevated temperatures. It offers excellent strength and toughness at the high temperatures.
Monel 400 wire causes significant resistance to the hydrochloric and hydrofluoric acids in dry condition. It attains high potential and adaptability at the various application temperatures. The melting point of alloy wire is 2370-2460oF. It sustains the level of mechanical features at the subzero temperature levels about 1000oF.
Monel wire offers excellent resistance to the various corrosive conditions due to which it is especially utilized in the marine, non oxidizing chloride solutions, stress-corrosion cracking in the freshwaters.
Corrosion Resistance Properties of Monel Wire to the following mediums:
1.Seawater and freshwater
2.Chloride and Stress Corrosion Cracking
3.Hydrochloric and Hydrofluoric acid and Sulfuric acid
4.Neutral and alkaline salt and alkalies
Manufacturer's Suggestion on Monel Wire:
Monel 400 Wire is resistant to chloride ion stress corrosion cracking in the distinctive conditions. Moreover, it is superior corrosion resistant in reducing conditions, though bad in oxidizing mediums. It cannot be used in oxidizing acids like nitric acid and nitrous. It might be corroded in the molten sulfur at temperatures over approximately 500oF. It causes resistance to the alkalis, salts, water, food items, organic materials and natural conditions at room and elevated temperature limits.
The resistance to corrosion Monel 400 Wire causes almost similar resistance like nickel metal however with the large working pressures and temperatures. It offers low cost due to its excellent machining character.
Monel Wire Applications:
1. Marine operations including chemical and hydrocarbon processing apparatus.
2. Gasoline and freshwater tank, crude petroleum stills
3. De-aerating heaters, boiler feed water heaters and other heat exchangers
4. Industrial heat exchangers, oil distillation towers
5. Chlorinated solvents, valves, pumps, shafts, fittings, and fasteners
