Critical Service Type 447 as alternative to nickel-based materials
Nickel prices are exploding on the raw material markets
In type 447, the medium-wetted parts of the steel body (inlet and outlet) are lined with PTFE. This makes this type an economical alternative to nickel-based materials, such as Hastelloy, which can be used in API type 526.
Applications with corrosive media have challenging requirements for the materials. For example, stainless steels are unsuitable for the production and processing of chlorine. LESER offers safety valves of the "Critical Service" product group to safeguard these applications.
The minimum thickness of the PTFE lining is 3 mm. This ensures reliable protection of the safety valve against corrosion. The system is safely protected against impermissible overpressures. The 447 is thus an equivalent technical alternative at significantly lower prices.
