General Introduction:
Monel wire mesh is a kind of alloy woven wire filter mesh. The monel alloy is also known as Nickel-copper alloy material as its main chemical components are nickel and copper. Monel series material series include Monel400,Monel401, Monel404, MonelR405 and Monel K-500. The most popular monel mesh is made of Monel 400 or Monel K-500.

Monel wire mesh has 60% up of nickel content which offers intense resistance to the variety of corrosion conditions such as resistance to brackish water, steam, salt and caustic solutions. Also, the melting point of Monel material is 1300 to 1350 and this enables Monel wire mesh products suitable for high temperature working conditions. So, Monel wire mesh is often used in research and development of petroleum and ocean exploring activities.

Comparing with common Stainless Steel Wire Mesh, Monel wire mesh offers better heating property and finds more uses in various heat exchange devices, heating facilities for boilers, etc.

Monel 400 Woven Wire Mesh

Monel 400 Wire Mesh significantly resists de-aerated hydrochloric acid and hydrofluoric acids. It provides broad resistance to stress corrosion cracking in the fresh water and other corrosion conditions. It shows intense mechanical features at the subzero temperatures and firmness and toughness. It doesn't exhibit ductile to brittle transformation when quenched to fluid hydrogen temperature level. 

Monel K 500 Woven Wire Mesh

Monel K500 Wire Mesh offers excellent resistance to corrosion as well as large strength and hardness. The strength of this alloy is retained up to 1200oF however it shows ductility and toughness up to 400oF. It has very high melting temperature of 2400oF to 2460oF.

Benefits of Using Monel K500 compared with Monel 400 Wire Mesh:

The Monel K500 alloy has almost three times higher yield strength and tensile strength as compare to Monel 400 mesh. In the age toughened form, it has larger competency against the stress corrosion cracking and offers more resistance to sour gas conditions.

Manufacture's Advices to Monel K500 alloy Mesh:

The alloy shows non magnetic features and spark resistance up to 200oF but it is possible to produce the magnetic layer on the alloy's surface while processing. The copper and aluminum elements are specifically oxidized during heating that produce the magnetic nickel layer outside the alloy surface. The magnetic properties can be removed by pickling.
