New Breakthrough: Advancing New Valve Materials
Nowadays, all industries are tend to apply the metal valves in their production, the employment of metal valves has more than one hundred year history, in the meanwhile, although there were some improvement been made of construction and its material, metal material still restricted by its own condition. Metal material is not tough enough resisting to some kinds of bad working conditions such as high abrasion and corrosion, this is mainly reflected in the short service life and easily revealing which greatly impact on the stability of system running. Traditional metal valve needs to be overhauled in materials, design, manufacturing technique, and so on.
Being a new valve material in 21th century, the advanced ceramics material has been more and more important for scientific workers. The application of advanced ceramics material in valve industry is a bold and beneficial innovation.
Valve has these following four advantages:
1. Adopting high-tech ceramic material to produce the sealing and damageable parts of valve can increase the valve’s property in abrasion, non-corrosion and sealing, this can greatly extend the service life of valve.
2. Using ceramic material can maintain the valve for a longer life, reduce the number of change in some extent, furthermore, it can improve the safety and stability of corollary equipment operation system, release the workmen’ working intensity, reduce repairing expenses.
3. The application of ceramic valve improves high sealing of industrial pipeline system, and completely eradicate leaking as farthest as it can, this is beneficial for environmental protection.
4. There are a wide range of raw material of producing ceramics, thus, ceramics has low cost in material, some general elements like aluminum, carbon and silicon can be made to become ceramics superior performance , therefore, it saves a great deal of metal material and rare ore resources from being used for ceramics production.
New ceramic valve is mainly used in electric power, petroleum, chemical industry, metallurgy, mining, sewage treatment and other industrial fields, especially in the case of strong high wear and corrosion, high temperature and high pressure, these bad working conditions much show its excellent performance.It satisfies the working environment of strong high wear and corrosion, especially its outstanding characteristic- super long service life, its cost performance is much better than the other same kind of metal valve.
The technology of ceramic materials prescription, molding, machining and assembly process and other aspects is more mature and complete, ceramic valve obtains more and more insiders’ acknowledge with its superior performance.
