Casting Valves with the Metals You Need Alloyed In-House
A primary focus at Erie Bronze is quality. One important way we can guarantee valve castings quality is by alloying metals in house. Our team of metallurgists uses their extensive combined experience and a suite of state-of-the-art testing equipment including a SPECTROLAB metal analyzer to ensure our alloys meet the precise specifications each casting job calls for. Examples of the alloys we commonly cast valves with include 952, 953, and 954 aluminum bronze as well as 862, 863, and 865 manganese bronze. While these are frequently requested alloys, they are by no means a complete list of the casting alloys you can contract the trusted bronze valve manufacturer in Erie, PA to provide.
Casting Valves in Alloys Including:
- C86200, C86300, and C86500 Manganese Bronze
- C95200, C95300, C95400, C95500, and C95800 Aluminum Bronze
- C90300, C90500, C90700, C91100 Tin Bronze, and more
Valve Casting Equipment Including a DISA MATCH 20/24 Molding System Ensures Prompt Turnaround
In addition to the testing tools we utilize, we are a bronze valve manufacturer that maintains an expansive suite of machines and furnaces at our Erie, PA foundry. This equipment allows us to complete valve manufacturing and casting work promptly. In addition to our existing equipment, we are always seeking to invest in new equipment to improve our capabilities. One example of this is a DISA MATCH 20/24 Molding System, which, upon its arrival, will provide our team with the ability to cast valves with improved surface finish, increased tensile strength, and reduction of hard inclusions in the casting. While we can cast a single large valve, this system will also store up to 30,000 pattern designs, making it capable of providing reproducible results for repeated production runs. This machine, which will arrive in early 2024, is going to improve our already expansive capabilities. In tandem with our six electric furnaces with a maximum melting capacity of 2,000 pounds, our equipment makes even the largest oil and gas valve manufacturing jobs possible at Erie Bronze.
Regardless of your industry or the alloy you need, we want to provide a competitive quote on your next bronze valve casting job.
