Ball valves are placed in some of the most severe conditions whether steam, oil & gas, mining, fluid transfer, fracing, etc. The use of exotic alloys to get the metallurgical results has been proven cost prohibitive.
Ball valves must be able to direct flow of the product stream reliably, restrict or stop product flow and with low-maintenance. Wear, corrosive resistance, and chemical compatibility are the major issues when selecting the correct coating for this application.
The application of SuperChrome I, SuperChrome II and Armorclad considerably improves the chemical resistance, increase wear resistance and better corrosive resistance to both alkaline and acidic environments. These applications allow for ball manufactures to use less exotic alloys and provide equal or greater capabilities.
Reduction of maintenance, longer product life, reduces costs and ensures product quality.
