Flapper Valves for Compressors
Flapper valve steel has to be of the highest precision due to its exceptional execution, requiring superior strength and a perfect surface finish. Produced for decades under Nordic climate in Sweden, our flapper valve steel is especially suited for cold rolling applications.
It is designed with optimum properties for use in refrigeration and freezer compressors as well as in heat pumps and air-conditioning systems. The flatness and surface finish of our flapper valve, which controls the gas flow in a compressor, is able to withstand billions of load cycles. Other challenging demands on material properties met by both our carbon and stainless valve products include high ultimate tensile strength, surface finish and steel cleanliness. The supreme quality of the strip steel is supported by our top modern production equipment.
Based on extensive testing and proven research that martensitic hardened and tempered steel best withstands fatigue performance, our valve steel programme comprises martensitic steel in both carbon and stainless grades to meet such stringent customer requirements.
