Materials Sourcing and Processing Department

We have set up a new Materials Sourcing and Processing Department (MSPD) to ensure that material we supply is capable of meeting the ever more demanding specifications.

The MSPD will bring together all staff of Alliance Valves Group U.K. Ltd as well as some exciting new employees that will share their expertise and knowledge of the metals industry. It will ensure customer enquiries received that may require additional processing or testing prior to being delivered are dealt with speedily and professionally.

The department’s main focus will be to take care of all your technical needs. From complying with strict testing regimes and specifications to managing the independent 3rd party inspection processes. The department will be there to ensure material conforms in its entirety to your requested specifications and requirements.

The new department will also look at grade conversions, for example; Taking ASTM A564 17/4PH Condition A and converting it fully heat treated and tested to H1150. or even full manufacture if the material / grade you need is not readily available in a time scale you have to operate. If it can be done, we will do our very best to produce it for you.

They will also be able to offer material in the shape and form you require. Whether you want a hole down a bar, squares cut from rounds, rings, plate or even hexagon bars that still meet your material mechanical requirements, then we have the knowledge and expertise to provide what you want.

The process department builds on the Alliance Valves Group U.K. Ltd core benefits. One of our main beliefs is that partnerships are stronger than working alone, and long term partnerships are the strongest of all. You supply the need, we supply the knowledge.

Duplex

Duplex is an austenitic ferritic Iron Chromium-Nickel alloy with Molybdenim addition. It has good resistance to pitting, a high tensile strength and higher resistance to stress corrosion cracking at moderate temperatures to that of conventional austenitic stainless steels.

Super Duplex

Super Duplex is an austenitic ferritic Iron Chromium-Nickel alloy with Molybdenim addition. It has good resitance to pitting, a high tensile strength and higher resistance to stress corrosion cracking at moderate temperatures to that of conventional austenitic stainless steels.
