Cu-Ni 90/10 Tubes are made of a reinforcing alloy of iron, manganese, and copper.90/10 Copper Nickel Tube is used in offshore fire water systems, hydraulic lines, and ships. Nickel 10.5, Iron 1.5, Manganese 0.75, and Copper make up the rest of its chemical makeup.
A hot billet is used to create the Cu-Ni Seamless Tubes. Cu-Ni 90/10 Tubes have no seams or joints in their construction. They have outstanding dimensional accuracy and high strength. Tensile and yield strengths for this copper-nickel seamless tubing range from 43900 to 60000 psi and 16000 to 57000 psi, respectively. These tubes come in a variety of sizes and forms. The ASME SB552 Welded Cu-Ni Tubes are made by joining sections of steel sheet or coil. These tubes are affordable and have a long lifespan.90/10 copper nickel tubing is very well-liked for use in industrial applications as well as architectural applications due to its high ductility and toughness.
Applications of Cu-Ni 90/10 Tubes
For the purpose of bilge and ballast, firefighting, pneumatic and chiller systems, and sanitary purposes, copper and nickel alloy are utilised. They are also discovered to be suitable for the feed line to the desalination plants and the heating coils in the cargo tank.
A few crucial parts of a high-quality seawater system design are a Cu-Ni condenser, tube sheets, heat exchangers, fittings, water boxes, pipes, and pumps.
Cu-Ni alloys are without a doubt quite well-established and used in thermal desalination plants. Cu-Ni is frequently utilised in the recovery section, heat rejection, and brine heaters of MSF desalination. Cu-Ni alloy tubing is now used for MED’s evaporator portion.
The steam turbine condenser and oil coolers can simply use Cu-Ni pipelines and parts. Additionally, it is employed in the auxiliary cooling system and at higher pressure pre-heaters in fossil fuel and nuclear power plants. They can also be utilised with ease to transport brackish and pure seawater. Additionally, Cu-Ni has advantages over tidal energy, wind farms, and wave energy in the marine renewable energy sector.
