Fusion Bonded Epoxy Coated valves for high corrosive applications.

 

FUSION BONDED EPOXY COATING

Our Fusion Bonded Epoxy Coated (FBE Coated) valves are the answer to those budget driven corrosion applications.  The FBE Coated body coupled with Flexi-Hinge® high flow type 316 Stainless Steel internals fills the void between carbon steel and an all stainless steel valve. FBE Coatings are classified as thermoset polymer coatings.  Special FBE powders are electrostatically applied to all surfaces allowing for a controlled and even thickness application.  The bodies are then heated between 180 and 480 degrees Fahrenheit transforming the powder into a liquid. A chemical “cross-linking” reaction then forms a hard chemically resistant coating.  Once cured, reheating will not melt the coating. 

FBE Coatings are available on any of our check valve body styles.  Small quantities are usually not a problem, lead-times are typically short and costing is significantly less than an all stainless steel construction.  Check FBE Coatings out the next time engineering specifies an all stainless steel check valve for that moderately corrosive application.
