The longevity of your valve solution is heavily dependent on the selection of the correct materials, especially when the valve is used for seawater applications.

Valve material selection

Selecting the right valve material is critical for several reasons:

  • Product service life
  • The criticality of the valve application
  • Valve material performance and application i.e. seawater applications
  • Hazards and working environments (handling corrosive fluids, shock and wear resistance)
  • Mechanical properties
  • Material costs
