CN102, C70600 & C7060X CuNi 90/10 is a Copper Nickel Iron alloy with a small alloy content of manganese. It allows excellent resistance to sea and brackish water and also combines easy fabrication with good mechanical properties between -100 and +300° C (-150 to 570° F). The minor contents of iron and manganese are to improve the alloy's mechanical properties and its resistance to corrosion and erosion if the iron content is kept in solution by suitable processing. Water velocity should be not less than 0.7m/s (28 in/s) to avoid corrosion due to deposited foreign material. The maximum velocity should be approx 2.5 m/s (100 in/s) for 50mm (2" ID) piping and 3.5 m/s (138 in/s) for > 50mm (2"ID) piping CuNi 90/10 finds extensive application due to its very good resistance to corrosion. In seawater it is still the preferred choice offering low installation cost, long service life and low expenditure in protective maintenance.
It is particularly popular for Construction elements in the shipbuilding industry; Offshore, sheathing of platform legs and cross members; Power generation; Seawater desalination units; Heat ex-changer condensers, preheaters and evaporators; Sea-water cooling systems and cooling pipes, tank-heating coils.
