Monel valves are made of a special alloy containing between 63%-70% Nickel and 28%-34% Copper, with smaller percentages of Iron, Manganese, Carbon and Silicon. The techniques of hot-cold working, machining and welding are used. These valves are built to have superior strength and resistance to corrosion caused by salt water and other chemical compounds. The Monel alloy is also known for having good thermal stress endurance, so it can survive heat changes without suffering deformation. Valves made from this alloy provide flexibility in environments that are too harsh for standard materials due to their mechanical properties. All these advantages make it an ideal choice when solving complex industrial issues that require high-end engineering solutions.
Monel valves are widely regarded as the most reliable, resilient and cost-efficient valves available today. These valves feature corrosion resistance properties, making them ideal for water pumps, cooling systems and other water-based operations due to their ability to resist wear caused by continuous contact with salt water.
Furthermore, they possess excellent thermal expansion properties, which allow them to adjust according to changing temperatures and pressures inside pipes. Monel valves are a perfect choice for steam lines and air compression systems. In addition, their combination of strength, durability, resistance to acids and alkalis and affordability has seen widespread use in the oil industry.
Valves are manufactured in types like Pneumatic, solenoid, Motor and Hydraulic. There are 100 plus valve types available; generally, monel ball valve, monel globe valve, monel gate valve, monel check valve etc., are popular. Contact any of our monel valve suppliers if you need valves in any type, shape, dimensions, specifications, or size. Work-hardening happens quickly in monel. Thus, machining is complex in monel valves. Valves are prominently used in plumbing applications. Monel valves are manufactured in two types 400 and K-500. Aluminium and titanium are added to K-500, which gives it additional strength. Monel is known to execute exceptional mechanical properties at sub-zero temperatures. Hydrofluoric acid does not damage the internal structure of the alloy. It is used in chemical industries to contain concentrated amounts of hydrofluoric acid. It can resist sulphuric acid even in reducing conditions.
