Monel Washer is an alloy of mainly nickel and copper, containing smaller amounts of iron and manganese. In addition, monel washer often has small percentages of several other elements, including aluminium, silicon, zinc, carbon, cobalt and titanium. Depending on the ratio of these elements within the alloy – which can be tailored specifically to a client's needs - the resulting monel washer could have a higher or lower melting point than traditional nickel-copper alloys. It also has superior ductility and malleability compared to other metals, making it ideal for various suited applications.
Monel washers are ideal for marine and chemical-based applications due to their temperature and corrosion-resistant properties. They offer an outstanding characteristic of the washer that helps you have exceptional resistance to hydrofluoric acid and sulfuric acid used under reducing conditions. These monel washers' characteristics are mainly used in chemical processing applications. That allows you in particularly tough acid that enables you to deal with concentration up to a boiling point. Commonly made from an alloy composed of two-thirds nickel and one-third copper, these washers are also notable for their high impact strength. Monel washers can withstand robust high-pressure environments without damage or wear, making them reliable for sealing critical components in piping systems. In addition, thanks to its malleability, Monel can be machined into any number of configurations, such as countersunk heads that fit effortlessly with surrounding constructions. Advantages of using monel washers include maintaining integrity even at higher temperatures, reliable sealing performance under corrosive conditions and resistance to galvanic corrosion, which can occur when using dissimilar metals in contact with each other.
