Marine Systems

Seawater is used for cooling, tank cleaning and heating, ballasting, waste disposal, firefighting and by distillation as a source of fresh water for boiler feed water and sanitary hot and cold water. All require piping systems which essentially consist of pumps, valves, pipes and fittings. In cooling systems, heat exchangers are also required.

Applications for copper-nickel alloys include condensers, coolers and other heat exchangers, seawater desalination plant systems for compressed air, sanitary systems, bilge, ballast water, brine, fire mains and sprinklers, fuel oil, lube oil, warm water heating, grey and black water, hydraulic lines and tank heating.

Offshore Oil & Gas Systems

Copper-nickel alloys are used in systems and splash zone sheathing on offshore oil and gas platforms and on floating production, storage, and offloading vessels (FPSOs). They are excellent materials for these harsh environments because they have good resistance to corrosion, reduced levels of macrofouling, are readily fabricated and can be welded directly to steel.

Power Generation

The generation of electricity in both nuclear and fossil-fired power plants involves important heat transfer processes: steam generators, heat exchangers, coolers, condensers, tanks, pipework, valves and fittings. Copper-nickel alloys are well-suited for these applications as they can be used successfully in clean seawaters with high total dissolved solids, brackish water, fresh water and cooling tower water.
