Compressor valve steel
Hardened and tempered strip steel for manufacturing many types of valves:
Compressor valves, reed valves, check valves, flapper valves, relief and relieve valves, explosion valves, diaphragms, lamellas, emergency valves, shutting and shut-off valves. They are used in, among others, the following applications:
- Air conditioning equipment
- Brake systems
- Heat pumps
- Industrial air compressors
- Refrigerators and freezers
- Vacuum pumps
Increased design freedom with Sandvik Hiflex™ compressor valve steel
Sandvik Hiflex™ compressor valve steel enables higher valve lift, leading to increased compressor efficiency. Reduced length of valve with maintained lift enables miniaturization of the valve.
Sandvik Hiflex™ compressor valve steel is well suited for use in compressors where higher pressures, frequencies and temperatures place increasing demands on the valve. Read more about Sandvik Hiflex™ compressor valve steel
