Investigation of Dissimilar Joints Between Low Carbon Steel and Monel 400(Materials, Metallurgy & Weldability)
Search this Article
A series of studies were carried out to examine the weldability and properties of dissimilar joints between low carbon steel and Monel 400 alloy. Such joints are important parts in oil gasification plants. This kind of joint requires good mechanical properties, a stable magnetic permeability besides good weldability. The joints made with the welding procedure that was developed are not susceptible to hot cracking. The joints after post weld heat treatment (heating up to 650oC, holding for 30min then rapid cooling), exhibit satisfactory mechanical properties. The results of various tests indicated that the quality of the joints is satisfactory for meeting all of the design requirements.
