Fittings and Flanges

Fittings and Flanges

Cu-Ni 70/30 Fittings and Cu-Ni 70/30 Flanges is a mixture of 70% copper and 30% nickel and in the presence of iron and manganese the alloy enhances its general qualities. These elemental additions make it even more resistant to corrosion and erosion and with slightly improved strength level than alloy 90/10, making it suitable for more demanding applications.

Alloy 70/30 Flanges and Fittings are known to oppose hydrogen embrittlement and retain its mechanical properties even at cryogenic temperatures. Cu-Ni  70/30 Flanges are utilized for marine, offshore, shipbuilding, chemical, petrochemical and architectural application. 

Specification of Flange 

According to  application and uses in pipes and tubes Cu-Ni 70/30 Flanges are broadly grouped into different sort, for example, Welding Neck Flange(WNF) & Long Welding Neck Flange(LWNF), Slip-on Flange(SOF), Lap Joint Flange(LJW), Blind Flange, Socket Welding Flange (SWF), Threaded Flange(THW), Plate Flange.

Cu-Ni 70/30 Flanges for the most part has different  face type, for example, Flat Face (FF), Raised Face (RF), Ring Type Joint (RTJ), blind flange, with various class rating as 50 LBS, 300 LBS, 600 LBS, 900 LBS, 1500 LBS, 2500 LBS, DIN Standard ND-6,10, 16,din 2.4856 , 25, 40 & ANSI B16.5.

Specification of Fittings

Cu-Ni 70/30 Fittings and Cu-Ni 70/30 Flanges are categorically available are Elbow, Reducer, Tee, Coupling, Bend, Stub End, Cap, Nipple, Washer, Cross, Union etc which are available in different  types such as Welded, Seamless and Fabricated having thickness range from 5s, 10s, 40s, 80s, 10, 20, 40, STD, 60, 80, XS, 100, 120, 140, 160, XXS available with NACE MR 01-75
