Dudley, United Kingdom (26 November 2010) – Chemipetro, the UK’s premier stockholder, manufacturer, and supplier of pipe fittings in the oil, gas, and petrochemical industries, supply all forms and grades of Monel for pipes, flanges, and pipe fittings.
David H Browne, the chief metallurgist for the International Nickel Company, created Monel which is a series of nickel alloys that are mainly composed of nickel, copper, and other trace elements. Monel’s corrosive resistance makes them ideal for marine applications, such as piping systems, pump shafts, and seawater valves. Monel fasteners can also be used for safety wiring in the aircraft industry as they cannot come undone.
Monel 400 and K500 can be used in highly corrosive conditions, and some grades can withstand fire in pure oxygen. Chemipetro is a leading manufacturer and supplier of pipe fittings, flanges, pipes and fasteners, and can offer their customers a range of components in all forms and grades of Monel.
Chris Massey of Chemipetro commented: “We are delighted to provide high-quality Monel components to a variety of industries. Monel is very difficult to machine in comparison to steel and it hardens very quickly, so it is typically more expensive than steel. However, all of our Monel products are available to our customers at an extremely affordable price.”
