Pipes Supplier Distibutor Exporter of Monel k500 Round Bars in India

Dinesh Tube India is Supplier & Exporter of a wide range of Monel K500 Round Bars. Our products are developed by vendors, who have years of experience of this field. Additionally, our products are developed at advanced unit which is settled with sophisticated machines and tools. Moreover, quality experts also inspect this product on diverse industry norms. Monel K-500 is a nickel-copper alloy with the same corrosion resistance and characteristics as the Monel 400. The Monel K-500 has a greater strength and hardness then the 400, as a result of added aluminum and titanium. In age-hardened condition, it has greater tendency toward stress- corrosion cracking in some environments.

Dinesh Tube India  has a diverse inventory that offers a full range of MONEL® Pipes & Tubes that are prominent in the process industry. Our support of the power & process industry is reflected in the specialty grades of material that we have in inventory to support outage & maintenance requirements.

MONEL® alloy K-500 (UNS N05500/ W.Nr. 2.4375) is a nickel-copper alloy which combines the excellent corrosion resistance of MONEL alloy 400 with the added advantages of greater strength and hardness. The increased properties are obtained by adding aluminum and titanium to the nickel-copper base, and by heating under controlled conditions so that submicroscopic particles of Ni3 (Ti, Al) are precipitated throughout the matrix. The thermal processing used to effect precipitation is commonly called age hardening or aging. The composition of the alloy is given in Table 1.

Typical applications for MONEL alloy K-500 products are chains and cables, fasteners and springs for marine service; pump and valve components for chemical processing; doctor blades and scrapers for pulp processing in paper production; oil well drill collars and instruments, pump shafts and impellers, non-magnetic housings, safety lifts and valves for oil and gas production; and sensors and other electronic components.

Our ability to provide Monel 400 and 500 products on a project basis is one of our strongest capabilities and is unmatched in our industry.

Turnarounds or outages, planned retrofits or emergency situations, grassroots projects worldwide; Dinesh Tube India has experienced staff to assist you on all of your specialty alloy requirements, no matter how detailed the specification.

Nickel Alloy 500 and Monel® K-500, commonly known as UNS N05500, is a nickel-copper based alloy which combines the excellent corrosion resistance of Nickel Alloy 400 with added advantages such as greater strength and hardness, making it superior to the other nickel-copper based alloys. This is achieved through the addition of titanium and aluminum which is added into the overall composition of the material. It has approximately twice the tensile strength and triple the yield strength of Nickel Alloy 400. This superior strength is maintained up to 1200° F, and conversely stays ductile and tough down to temperatures of – 400° F. Another advantage of Nickel Alloy 500 is that it stays non-magnetic at temperatures down to – 200° F which is ideal for applications where electronics are attached or in close proximity to the material where a magnetic field can be a disruption, such as downhole or tubing. Additional characteristics of Nickel Alloy 500 include spark resistance and outstanding corrosion resistance in a wide range of chemical and marine surroundings, including salts, alkalies (or acid-like substances), and non-oxidizing acids. NSA stocks a full range of Nickel Alloy 500 sizes and finishes; we receive our material from the mill age hardened (or aged) which has higher physicals than materials supplied in the annealed condition.

Nickel Alloy 500 Rev. G, QQ-N-286G, is an approved Federal specification, generally used in naval applications. This specification calls for the material to be raised to an even higher level of standard than the basic Nickel Alloy 500. It must be produced either by an electric arc furnace, or a vacuum induction furnace. After production the material will be further refined to pass the slow strain rate tensile test (SSRTT). In retrospect, Nickel Alloy 500 Rev. G is requested for applications generally because it is not susceptible to intergranular cracking.

Industries that use 500 include:

  • Chemical processing
  • Marine engineering
  • Oil and Gas extraction

Products partially or completely constructed of 500 include:

  • Centrifugal pumps
  • Oil and Gas production components
  • Propeller shafts
  • Pump shafts
  • Springs
  • Valve components
  • Valves
