Copper nickel tubes manufacturer in India

Copper nickel tube Specifications

What is a Copper Nickel Tube?

These tubes are known for superb corrosion resistance in marine and harsh conditions. A copper nickel tube comprises 70-90% copper with 30 or 10% nickel, with the former being sturdier and more resilient. These impact-resistant tubes don’t suffer from hydrogen embrittlement or cavitation, which ails many alternatives.

What are the properties and applications of cupro nickel tubing?

The desirable properties of a cunifer tube include high thermal stability and strength at elevated temperatures. Its corrosion resistance, electrical conductivity, and antibacterial properties are well-admired. It makes a durable, recyclable piping solution that resists biofouling.

Cupro nickel tubing serves heat exchangers, power generation equipment, and firewater systems. Its role in marine industries is particularly appreciable, ranging from seawater cooling and boat hulls to valve components.

At our company, we are dedicated to offering top-notch copper nickel brake tubing to our clients. Don't forget to explore the advantages of our copper nickel heat exchanger tube as well

What are the advantages of using copper nickel for heat exchanger tubes?

The thermal properties of a copper nickel heat exchanger tube adapt conveniently to heat exchangers. It boasts a thermal conductivity of 50 (measured in W/mK), exhibiting stability at challenging temperatures.

Moreover, these pipes unfailingly retain mechanical strength and show a linear expansion coefficient of 17 – perfect for condensers and other heat-based roles.

What are the benefits of using copper nickel tubing in HVAC systems?

HVAC systems (heating, ventilation, and air conditioning) frequently use a CuNi welded tube because of its high thermal conductivity. The material conducts heat well and cools effectively through dissipation.

Other benefits of this piping for HVAC systems are resistance to oxidation/corrosion and high durability. It extends the useful life of the air-conditioning units

Copper nickel alloy tube and CuNi Seamless Tubo are well-known for their superior corrosion resistance, making them ideal for use in harsh marine environments

How does the speciality of CuNi seamless tubes contribute to their resistance to pitting, crevice corrosion, and stress corrosion cracking?

The primary advantage of a cuni seamless tube is improved strength and fatigue resistance since it lacks joints or seams. It protects against general or localised corrosion. In chlorinated environments, it safeguards from SCC (stress-corrosion cracking).
