Gate Valve By Material

When selecting the valve material of the gate valve, the material should be determined according to the actual conditions of working conditions such as temperature, pressure & medium. The material of ZECO gate valve includes, but is not limited to stainless steel, carbon steel, forged and cryogenic.

Water, oil, natural gas, steam, and other non-corrosive media the most commonly used material of valve body, valve bonnet, and the wedge is A216 WCB, and after NACE MR-01-75 or NACE MR-01-03 treatment, A216 WCB material is also often used in the condition of slight corrosion. One thing to note, however, is that the temperature range of A216 WCB is -29℃ to 425℃.

Material Choices of Gate Valve

Like high-temperature conditions, the medium is high-temperature steam or hot air conditions, usually, the choice of materials for high-temperature-resistant materials such as A217 WC6, A217 WC9, the temperature range of A217 WC6 & A217 WC9 is -29℃ to 593℃.

A352 LCB, A352 LCC is usually used for a low-temperature application, usually, the medium is of low-temperature but over -46℃ or through conduit gate valve is installed outdoor in area of a cold environment. But these materials can not be used for high-temperature over 345℃.

A351 CF8, A351 CF8M, A351 CF3, A351 CF3M, these austenitic stainless steel are anti-rust and anti-corrosion, suitable for the medium of various kinds of acid. A351 CF8, A351 CF8M, A351 CF3 & A351 CF3M can be used in most low temperature conditions, but it needs cryogenic treatment. It can also be used in most high-temperature conditions, but there are corresponding standards for carbon content.

Aluminum-bronze like B148 C95800, B62 C83600, B283 C61300, and other Al-bronze are perfectly suitable for seawater application.

Duplex Steel A890 4A, A890 5A, SAF2205, S31803 and super duplex steel A890 6A, SAF2507, S32750 have similar application range of Al-Bronze, they have good resistance to chloride corrosion, so they are widely used for seawater application and produced water application.
