The corrosiveness of seawater is the greatest challenge that seawater desalination faces. Valves are subjected to corrosion damage under the long-term erosion of seawater, resulting in reduced sealing performance. Valve damage will increase unnecessary purchasing expenses, and even worse, it is possible that the entire equipment may have to stop to overhaul and the cost of shutdown will be very high.
To solve the problem of seawater corrosion, we usually choose titanium, (Super) duplex steel, nickel aluminum bronze or austenitic stainless steel to manufacture valves, which feature corrosion-resistance and washing-out resistance, ensure service life and longer replacement cycle, and help you save costs and improve the reliability of desalination.
