Devlon materials are widely specified by valve manufacturers and are approved by major oil and gas producers.
Devlon X100 and Devlon V-API were developed by James Walker in close cooperation with the valve industry as the answer to the search for superior valve seat materials.
Specifically formulated to provide enhanced performance across a wide temperature and pressure range, Devlon V-API is now widely specified by valve manufacturers and has rapidly gained approval for use by major oil and gas producers. Devlon V-API is a proprietary formula developed by James Walker, which includes additives that allow the material to perform at higher pressures and temperatures than the majority of soft valve seat materials, providing a cost effective solution with superior performance.
Devlon X100 represents the next generation of materials for valve seats and was specifically developed for use in the valve industry as a floating ball valve seat material. Devlon X100 extends both the temperature and pressure range of traditional materials such as Nylon 6 and PTFE and improves moisture absorption resistance, with additional improvements in wear performance and chemical resistance to aliphatic and aromatic hydrocarbons, H2S and CO2.
Developed for use specifically in the valve industry as a floating ball valve seat material.
In safety critical applications such as valves, it is vital that the material specified is the material used. Devlon with Positive Material Identification Technology gives manufacturers and end users the peace of mind that they are using genuine Devlon polymer, particularly significant in an industry where increased occurrences of counterfeiting are an unfortunate and unwelcome reality.
