Exotic Alloy Valves & Exotic Valve Materials
Petro-Valve stocks an extensive selection of exotic alloys from leading manufacturers such as Vogt, Flowseal, DSI, Durco, Ladish, Pacific Valves, Quadrant, and Xomox. Our manufacturers provide us with an extensive inventory of gate, globe, check, plug, ball, and butterfly valves made from a variety of exotic alloys.
Petro-Valve stocks an extensive selection of aluminum valves. Aluminum is remarkable for the metal’s low density and for its ability to resist corrosion. Aluminum is soft, durable, and lightweight with the appearance ranging from silvery to dull grey, depending on the surface roughness. Corrosion resistant due to a thin surface layer of aluminum oxide that forms when the metal is exposed to air, preventing further oxidation.
Petro-Valve stocks a wide variety of chrome valves. Chrome or Chromium is highly resistant to corrosion and is a very hard material. Chromium’s main uses are in alloys such as stainless steel. Chromium is used in metallurgy to impart corrosion resistance and a shiny finish.
Monel is a series of nickel alloys, primarily composed of nickel and copper, with some iron and other trace elements. Compared to steel, Monel is very difficult to machine as it work-hardens instantly with heat and does not harden into a constant matrix. It is resistant to corrosion and acids, and some alloys can withstand a fire in pure oxygen.
This exotic alloy refers to a family nickel-chromium based supper alloys. Inconel alloys are typically used in high temperature applications. Common trade names include: Inconel 625, Chronin 625, Altemp 625, Haynes 625, Nickelav 625, and Nicrofer 6020.
Petro-Valve stocks an extensive selection of Nickel valves. Nickel is corrosion- resistant, silvery-white, hard, malleable, and a ductile metal. Nickel is used mainly in preparation of alloys. Nickel alloys are characterized by strength, ductility, and resistance to corrosion and heat.
Petro-Valve stocks Hastelloy, which is a prefix name of a range of twenty two different highly corrosion-resistant metal alloy loosely grouped by the metallurgical industry under the material term “superalloys,” or “high performance alloys.” The predominant alloying ingredient is typically the transition metal nickel. The primary function of the Hastelloy super alloys is that of effective survival under high-temperature, high-stress service in a moderately to severely corrosive, and/or erosion prone environment where more common and less expensive iron-based alloys would fail.
