Metal processing
The processing of metal is a tough business: turning, bending, pickling, heating and cooling of materials, heat treatment of steels, surface treatments and at the same time maintaining a high quality surface finish – these are just some of the demands Schubert & Salzer’s valves overcome every day in many metal processing operations. It must be guaranteed that valves operate smoothly under great heat in this harsh environment. But it is not just heat resistance that is a determining factor, as in metal processing quite often aggressive media are involved which the installed valves must withstand too.

Our angle seat valve has proved particularly effective in doing this. As an “all-rounder in valve technology”, it copes easily with millions of switching operations, high temperatures and even aggressive media. Besides the angle seat construction, the seat valve is also available in right-angle, flanged and angle seat flanged body versions. Bearing many possible connection options (from socket screw threads right through to Tri-clamp fittings), this seat valve can be employed in various operations. Also, there is a choice of different types of actuation: pneumatic, motor-driven or manually-operated.

The motorised version of the Schubert & Salzer angle seat valve is used, for example, for metering the nitrogen in inert furnaces, where the gas is applied to the metal surface, or for metering the cooling air in galvanising facilities. Angle seat valves are also used for steel pickling where the effluent water needs to be processed. Another application is in the regulation of the air flow in filtration plants when it is necessary to reduce the amount of fine dust from steel processing.
