DRASS WATCH TUNGUM

The Tungum is a unique piece, is the first ever case in tungum pipe.
Tungum Alloy (Aluminium-Nickel-Silicon-brass), is highly resistant to sea water and its atmosphere, resists both stress and crevice corrosion to offer outstanding serviceability.

Tungum’s high proof to ultimate stress ratio enables system proof tests to be conducted well above working pressure, without risk of permanent set taking place.
When used in high pressure hydraulic or pneumatic circuits, these features together with inherent “clean bore” characteristics combine in affording an easily constructed, high integrity system. This requires a minimum of purging and no external protective treatment.
Benefits:

  • Highly resistant to sea water and its atmosphere, Tungum resists both stress and crevice corrosion to offer outstanding serviceability, even at intermittent duty in the highly corrosive ‘splash’ zone.
  • Non-magnetic and non-sparking properties make Tungum invaluable in piping high pressure gases, particularly oxygen where its thermal conductivity/ defusivity characteristics virtually eliminate the potential dangers present when lesser materials are employed.
  • Tungum Alloy is a cryogenic material, suitable for chemical engineering and low temperature processes. Its corrosion resistance often enables its use in conveying fluids and gases containing corrosive elements.
