Monel is a nickel containing alloy. It consists of nickel, carbon and silicon in small amounts. Monel Tubes use hot-cold working, machining and welding for fabrication. Monel tubes can resist corrosion in many agents, including rapidly flowing sea-water.
Monel tubing has a combination of properties such as high strength, ductility, resistance to acids and alkalis and good thermal conductivity. Hence, use in critical and high performance applications is effective. Monel tubings are costly and find use in limited applications. Machining is difficult on Monel tubings, as they work-harden quick
