Stainless Steel Plate
Alloy 410 Stainless Steel Gate Valves
Used in a variety of industries, gate valves are best suited for applications where fluids or gases flow in a straight line and need minimum restriction. Applications that require the flow of heavy oils, light grease, cream, and other non-flammable liquids can benefit from using a gate valve as a shutoff device. Gate valves should only be used to permit or prevent the flow, not to regulate flow speed, as the valves are typically designed to be fully opened or closed.
The properties and composition of the gate valve material is very important, especially since they are required to carry a range of liquids or gases that could affect certain substances. With the volume of liquid or gas flowing through a gate valve, they should be made of a high-strength, corrosion-resistant material. This is why Alloy 410 is an ideal choice.
Alloy 410 Stainless Steel Properties and Composition
Alloy 410 is a general purpose stainless steel with 12% chromium martensitic properties. Type 410 is made for working with a variety of liquid and gaseous substances because of its hardness and corrosion-resistant composition. The physical and mechanical properties of 410 stainless steel yield a number of fabrication options, such as heat treatment, hot and cold forming, machining, and welding.
