Langley Alloys presented at the recent ValveWorld conference held in Dusseldorf on the 27th-29th October 2018. The conference attracted 400 delegates across the three days, in parallel with the main exhibition that hosted more than 650 exhibitors from 40 countries, attended by nearly 12,000 visitors. Our lead Metallurgical Engineer, David Coghill, presented Langley Alloys work on the measurement and understanding of galling resistance. Focusing on an improved test standard, this work highlighted the increased galling resistance of Ferralium 255-SD50 in comparison with other super duplex and austenitic stainless steels.
David commented “This was a good opportunity to share some of our recent technical studies with a very focused audience. Galling is relevant for components such as valve stems and trim, so it was certainly challenging to present this work to highly qualified audience. The co-location of the conference with the large exhibition also helped me to gain a better appreciation of our customers requirements.”
