The durability of the valve seat is crucial to the integrity of the entire valve.
Minimize possible leak points by minimizing the size of irregular valve packings.
Retain the media in the pipeline system.
Why Ceramic Valves?
Ceramic materials are 6-8 times harder than stainless steels.
The thickness of SKYCERA's ceramic material is often measured in inches, typically 1/4" and thicker. Most hard coatings are measured in microns. For example, Hard Chrome coatings are typically less than one-thousandth (0.001") of an inch.
Extreme hardness and high temperature capabilities give
ceramics exceptional resistance to cavitation, even continuous, aggressive cavitation does not affect the material.
With special ball and seat processing, near bubble-tight shutoff can be achieved.
