A hard material called Stellite has been welded on safety valve seat surfaces. Welding stellite makes seat surfaces harder so that they can withstand the impact when safety valve activates.
Welding is particularly important process for manufacturing our safety valve.


Lapping (Mirror Finish)

Lapping ( Mirror Finish ) is one of the processes to make seat surfaces flat and wringing so that seat leakage might not occur with high probability. Not only machine lapping but also hand lapping is necessary depends on the shapes of the parts to stop the fluid.
The finish precision of hand lapping needs a skill of highly skilled worker.
