Monel 400


Overview of Monel 400 Alloy

Monel alloy 400 (UNS N04400/W.Nr. 2.4360) is a solid-solution alloy that can be hardened only by cold working.

It has high strength and toughness over a wide temperature rangeand excellent resistance to many corrosive environments.

The alloy also has good mechanical properties from sub-zero temperatures up to 549°C.

Alloy 400 is widely used in many fields, especially marine and chemical processing.

Typical applications are valves and pumps; pump and propeller shafts; marine fixtures and fasteners; electrical and electronic components; springs; chemical processing equipment; gasoline and fresh water tanks; crude petroleum stills, process vessels and piping; boiler feedwater heaters andother heat exchangers; and deaerating heaters.

Corrosion Resistance of Monel 400

Monel alloy 400 exhibits resistance to corrosion by many reducing media. It is also generally more resistant to attack by oxidizing media than higher copper alloys. This versatility makes alloy 400 suitable for service in a variety of environments.

Alloy 400 is widely used in marine applications. While alloy 400 products exhibit very low corrosion rates in flowing seawater, stagnant conditions have been shown to induce crevice and pitting corrosion. Alloy 400 is also resistant to stress corrosion cracking and pitting in most fresh and industrial waters.

Density And Melting Point of Monel, Inconel, Incoloy, Hastelloy Alloys

When choosing nickel alloys, it’s essential to consider their density and melting point. Density impacts the actual weight of the alloy, while the melting point determines the maximum service temperature. These are the most critical physical properties of alloys. Given the complex compositions of superalloys, their densities and melting points can vary significantly. In this

advantage and disadvantage of monel alloy

What is the Advantage and Disadvantage of Monel Alloy?

Monel alloy is one of the high-quality nickel-based superalloys. This alloy mainly consists of nickel and copper in its composition with some other elements like magnesium, silicon, carbon and iron. Monel alloys are most widely used due to their outstanding corrosion resistance, strength and high-temperature durability.  The first monel alloy was produced commercially in 1905.

Monel Alloys: A Comprehensive Guide

Monel® are alloys that are made mostly from the composition of metals like nickel and copper. Monel alloys also consist of small amounts of silicon, iron, carbon, and manganese. Monel alloys contain less than 60% copper, which means that they are not cupronickel alloys. Monel alloys are generally much more expensive alloys than others, but
