Monday, July 27, 2009
Hardide Coatings has been approved for use on a new line of
coated metal ball and seats, and has secured first orders from Flowserve.
Flowserve has approved Hardide for use on its McCANNA
standard metal seated valve applications.
The use of Hardide has enabled Flowserve to offer the base metal in

150-1500 and cryogenic to 800OF maximum temperature applications.These results follow two years of co-operation

testing. Hardide is also working with
Flowserve on the re-design and testing of two other product lines with results
expected within the next three to six months. More…
