High Temperature Ball Valves

Metal seated valves are designed for corrosive and abrasive applications or for applications with temperatures which exclude the use of resilient materials. The seating action is provided by the metal-to-metal contact between the ball and the seat rings. Seating faces are generally composed of hard metals.
The main feature of metal-seated valves is their ability to withstand high temperatures and severe environmental conditions when compared to regular soft seated valves. Metal seats can resist temperatures of up to 550°C, endure severe cavitation levels as a result of use with abrasive applications and fluid and hydraulic shock. They are also suitable for highly corrosive applications.
Metal seats can be hardened with ultrasonic coating, chromium carbide, and tungsten carbide.
