Can anyone give me any insight into the Brinell Hardness requirements for Monel 400 after PWHT for pipe? Is it in the range of 160-185 BHN? I also can not find any information regarding at what hardness levels does Monel 400 become susceptible to cracking. I have seen some documentation suggesting it may be in excess of 140 BHN. Thanks
