What steel are used for valves?

What steel are used for valves?

The following are some materials used to manufacture valves and their properties, applications, benefits and limitations: Stainless steel: Stainless steel is a popular valve material. Its high oxidation and corrosion resistance, durability and superior mechanical properties make it suitable for numerous applications.

What is valve material specification?

A forged valve body is produced by forging and machining solid steel. The key specifications for cast steel valves body materials are ASTM A216 (WCA, WCB, WCC), ASTM A352 LCB/LCC (low-temperature), and ASTM A351 CF8/CF8M. ASTM A105, A350 and A182 cover body materials for small size (or high pressure) forged valves.

Which material is used for engine valve?

Materials used in Engine Valves The intake valves are mainly made of chrome, nickel, or tungsten steel, and the exhaust valves are primarily made of high heat resistant metals such as nichrome, silicon-chromium, or cobalt-chromium alloys.

What is SA 216 Gr WCB?

Carbon steel SA216 WCB, is a carbon steel suitable for fusion welding in high-temperature service applications: steel castings for valves, flanges, fittings or other pressure-containing parts for high temperature service and of quality suitable for assembly with other castings or wrought steel parts by fusion welding.

What is WCC valve?

WCC stands for “Wrought Carbon” with Grade C. Sometimes you can think first letter “C” as casting. There are 3 kind of Grade A, B & C which define the ductility & tensile strength. Grade WCC is having very good yield strength as compare to Grade WCA and Grade WCB.

What is the material of inlet valve?

The temperature at the inlet valve is less compared to exhaust valve. Thus the inlet valve is generally made of nickel chromium alloy steel and exhaust valve is made of silchrome steel. the engine has one inlet and one exhaust valve.
