Situation: A long-time customer was committed to a major project involving many large valves made from 2205 Duplex. However, high prices and long delivery times for Duplex threatened the project cost and delivery schedule.
Solution: Working with our customer, we were able to develop a process for the application of the duplex to an alloy steel base material that enabled the finished valves to maintain the mechanical properties as well as the corrosion resistant requirements needed for the job.
Bottom Line: Due to AccuWeld’s process innovation, the material costs were substantially lower and the delivery time was significantly earlier than otherwise possible. AccuWeld was instrumental in helping our customer dramatically reduce its costs and complete an on-schedule delivery.
