Choosing the right valve body materials can assure the high performance of valves in specific applications, such as high-temperature environments, or strong corrosive industrial processes.
Valve Body Materials
There are various types of materials available for valve body manufacturing.
For normal applications, we have carbon steel, low carbon steel, duplex stainless steel, and austenitic stainless steel.
For severe applications, there are titanium alloy, Inconel alloy, Monel alloy, Hastelloy, zirconium alloy, etc.
Soft Sealing Material
The selection of sealing material is decided by the required temperature range as well as the inside media properties.
PTFE is the most common choice, besides, there are RPTFE, PVDF, KEL-F, PFA, PCTFE, and PEEK available, too.
