Common Material Requirements For National Standard Valves
1. General requirements for materials
The materials of the valve body, bonnet and flange should be selected according to the conditions of use and manufacturing requirements, and should
meet the requirements of GB 12228, GB 12229, GB 12230 and GB 3077.
The materials of nuts, bolts and studs can be A5, 25, 35, 30CrMoA and 40MnVB, etc.,. which should be selected according to the working pressure
and temperature, and should meet the requirements of GB 700. GB 699 and GB 3077.
Precision castings shall not be used for valves with nominal pressure PN> 10.0MPa.
Note that the material may graphitize in the fllwing situations:
When carbon steel is above 425°C;
Carbon-molybdenum steel is about higher than 470°C;
Chrome-molybdenum steel (containing less than 0.6% chromium) is approximately above 525°C.
In the ollowing situations, attention should be paid to the possible peroxygen reaction (from oxide scale):
1Cr-0.5Mo steel, 1.25Cr-0. 5Mo steel, 2Cr-1Mo steel and 3Cr-1Mo steel above 565°C
5Cr-0.5Mo steel above 595°C
2. Regulations on the selection of materials for main parts
The material of the main parts of the carbon steel valve whose temperature is -20~425°C should meet the requirements of "Table 1".
The material of the main parts of the alloy steel valve whose temperature of the conveying medium is lower than or equal to 540°C shall meet the
requirements of "Table 2".
The main materials of alloy steel valves whose temperature of the conveying medium is lower than or equal to 550°C shall meet the requirements of
The material of the main parts of the stainless and acid-resistant steel valve whose temperature is lower than or equal to 200°C shall meet the
requirements of "Table 4".
The sealing surface material of the wedge gate valve that is used for A and B pipelines and frequently opens and closes should be made of hard alloy
material. If there are special requirements for the main parts and materals of pipeline valves for transporting corrosive media, they should be mentioned when
The alloy steel and stainless steel valve bracket material separated from the bonnet shall be carbon steel or determined according to order
Manufacturers of valve packing and gaskets must conduct performance tests on their products by relevant seal testing units, and their technical
performance should meet the following requirements:
The surface of the gasket body should not have defects such as scars, unevenness and rust spots;
The non-metallic belt shall protrude evenly from the metal belt and shall be smooth and flat,
The gasket shall not be pre-pressed or processed, and the solder joints shall not have defects such as false welding and overburning.
