7044: The Application of Copper-Nickel Alloys in Marine Systems
A book of five papers on copper-nickel alloys for marine service covering: properties, corrosion and fouling resistance; seawater piping systems; condenser and heat exchanger applications; usage in desalting plants and equipment; and sheathing of offshore structures and ship hulls. From a series of seminars presented jointly by CDA and the Nickel Development Institute.
(82 pgs.)
701/5: Brazed Copper-Nickel Piping Systems
Describes, with 10 photographs, 5 drawings and 5 tables, how to braze copper-nickel piping systems, especially for seawater distribution systems where copper-nickel's resistance to biofouling and seawater corrosion is needed.
(6 pgs.)
A7020: Copper-Nickel Welding and Fabrication

Thoroughly reviews the material properties, welding, brazing, fabrication and handling of 90-10 and 70-30 copper-nickels and their applications for pipe systems, condenser service, heat exchangers, boat hulls, sheathing and other structures engineered for marine use.

708/5: Copper-Nickel Piping for Offshore Platforms
pdf icon [8.6MB]
C70600 (90-10 Cu-Ni) piping is ideal for offshore platforms on the basis of cost effectiveness, corrosion and biofouling resistance. Includes engineering considerations for installation and fabrication.
(6 pgs.)
704/4: Copper-Nickel Piping Reduces Costs, Biofouling, Corrosion

Results of a prototype test installation in the Gulf of Mexico show that, although initial costs may sometimes be higher, the life-cycle cost of copper-nickel piping is less and productivity is improved. Reprint, World Oil, November 1984.
(3 pgs.)
706/5: Copper-Nickel Sheathing Improving Jacket Performance

Describes several prototype applications of 90-10 copper-nickel alloy sheathing of offshore structural members. Includes cost comparisons and design considerations. Reprint, Offshore, November 1985.
(3 pgs.)
704/5: Design Guide: Copper Alloys Mesh in Marine Aquaculture

Describes prototype fish cages and other aquatic hardware made with copper alloy mesh which resists corrosion and biofouling. Summarizes design data for such installations.
A7032: Guidelines for the Use of Copper Alloys in Seawater

A thorough presentation of the relative properties and advantages of 18 different copper alloys (including copper itself) in seawater applications. Presents service and laboratory data on resistance to corrosion and biofouling under various environmental conditions. Reprint, Materials Performance, September 1987.
(11 pgs.)
A1213: Metallic Coatings for Corrosion Control of Marine Structures

Reviews properties of copper-nickel alloys including corrosion behavior and biofouling resistance as affected by composition, water velocity, exposure conditions and methods of attachment to steel. Describes the results of long-term trials of Cu-Ni alloys applied to pilings and ship hulls. Cost benefits are analyzed.
