Example text

Mo Molybdenum is alloyed with high strength steel to improve the high temperature physical properties. It is added to stainless steels to increase resistance to pitting corrosion. "Moly" has a favourable influence on the welding qualities. 24 MSS N Nitrogen, the chemical symbol is more usually written N2. Nitrogen increases the austenitic stability of chrome-nickel stainless steels and greatly increases the strength, hardness and improves pitting corrosion resistance. Via a nitriding process, nitrogen can produce very hard surfaces while maintaining a tough core.

Repairs During the normal manufacturing process, errors occur. The errors can be small, that is easily rectified without impairing the function or performance of the component, or major, requiring substantial rework, or critical and unrecoverable. During the production of standard valves, the valve manufacturer imposes his standard repair requirements on components. When valves are produced specially to order, the purchaser has the opportunity to decide which flaws are repairable and which are not.

If a flaw is discovered on the outside of the valve body, the lowest stressed region, other repair techniques may be appropriate. Proprietary specifications for pressure containing parts frequently prohibit repairs by peening, plugging, burning-in or impregnating. Limitations on repairs must be agreed before manufacturing commences. Always described as reduced-bore, a valve in which the seat area or the ports leading to the seat are smaller than the nominal pipe area in which it is fitted. In globe valves the ports may be smaller and the seat may be larger than the nominal pipe area.
