Monel®/Alloy 400, R-405, K-500 Nickel-Copper

Monel® is a trademark of Special Metals Corporation for a series of nickel, primarily composed of nickel (up to 67%) and Copper, with some Iron and other trace elements. Monel was created by David H. Browne, chief metallurgist for International Nickel Co. Monel alloy 400 is binary alloy of the same proportions of nickel and copper as is found naturally in the nickel ore from the Sudbury (Ontario) mines. Monel was named after company president Ambrose Monell, and patented in 1906. One L was dropped, because family names were not allowed as trademarks at that time.

 

Description

Alloy 400 is a nickel-copper alloy which provides an excellent combination of high strength, ductility, good weldability, and resistance to corrosion over a wide range of temperatures and conditions.

Applications

Chemical Processing Equipment – heat exchangers, reactors and vessels; caustic evaporators; pumps, valves, and piping for processing hydrofluoric, hydrochloric and sulfuric acids, fluorine, dry chlorine, hydrogen chloride and hydrogen fluoride gasses, non-oxidizing halides and neutral alkaline salts.

Marine Components – pumps, valves, piping, shafts and fixtures used in sea and brackish water.

Petroleum Refining – crude distillation towers, accumulator tanks, condensers, isomerization units, hydrofluoric and sulfuric acid alkylation units, vessels, heat exchangers and piping.

Power Industry – expansion bellows, feedwater heaters, other heat exchangers and cooling tower fans.
Electrical and Electronic Components.
