Monel refers to a group of nickel alloys that have copper as the main alloying element. In addition to these two primary metals, Monel alloys may also contain small amounts of iron, manganese, carbon, silicon, sulfur, aluminum, and titanium.
The specific composition of a Monel alloy depends on its desired properties and applications. In general, Monel alloys are known for their high strength and resistance to corrosion in both fresh and saltwater while also having excellent high and low-temperature resistance.
The three main Monel alloys, each of which has several variations, are listed below:
|Element||Nickel, Ni||Copper, Cu||Iron, Fe||Manganese, Mn||Silicon, Si||Carbon, C||Sulphur, S|
|Content (%)||Remainder||28-34||2.5 max||2 max||0.5 max||0.3 max||0.024|
|Property||Value (Metric)||Value (Imperial)|
|Density||8.80*103 kg/m3||549 lb/ft3|
|Modulus of Elasticity||179 GPa||26,000 ksi|
|Thermal Expansion (20ºC)||13.9*10-6º C-1||7.7*10-6 in/(in*ºF)|
|Specific Heat Capacity||427 J/(kg*K)||0.102 BTU/(lb*ºF)|
|Thermal Conductivity||21.8 W/(m*K)||151 BTU*in/(hr*ft2*ºF)|
|Electric Resistivity||54.7*10-8 Ohm*m||54.7*10-6 Ohm*cm|
|Tensile Strength (Annealed)||550 MPa||79,800 psi|
|Yield Strength (Annealed)||240 MPa||34,800 psi|
|Liquidus Temperature||1,350º C||2,460º F|
|Solidus Temperature||1,300º C||2,370º F|

The main advantages that Monel offers are
high corrosion resistance to acids and alkalis.
resistance to alkalis.
good ductility (easy to shape and form)
ease of welding, brazing, and soldering
high mechanical strength
availability in different forms like sheets, plates, rods, bars, pipes, and tubes
attractive appearance and finishes.
ability to hold up in high-temperature situations as well as low temperatures
Due to fabrication by hot- and cold-working, machining, and welding, Monel is extensively used in marine and chemical processing fields. However, the material is costly so can only be used where cheaper alternatives are not available. Usually, Monel piping is more than 3 times as expensive as compared to carbon steel pipe.
Typical applications of Monel are
valves and pumps; pump and propeller shafts; electrical and electronic components; crude petroleum stills, boiler feedwater heaters, marine fixtures, and fasteners;
gasoline and water tanks; fuel tanks; springs; chemical processing equipment; process vessels and piping; heat exchangers; metal instruments; deaerating heaters;
musical instruments; refrigerators; film processing; kitchen sinks; roofing; and eyeglass frames.
Monel is available in a pipe, fittings, plate, strip, round bar, strip, tube, sheet, and wire form.
