Syalon 050 is finding increased use as a metering valve for abrasive slurries, particularly for chemical and sub–sea applications.
Syalon 050 is extremely hard, tough and strong resulting in excellent wear resistant, and is chemically very stable making it potentially an ideal material for applications such as metering valves.
Case Study – Sialon Metering Valves versus Inconel and Silicon Carbide
For example, a 38mm diameter Syalon 050 metering valve, which cycled every 10 seconds, metering a hot abrasive slurry, out–performed inconel valves by a factor of 14 to 1 and out–performed silicon carbide valves by 7 to 1.
