We will inevitably encounter a situation where some valves will be idle. If the air environment is not good, how can the idle valves be prevented from rusting and damage?
1. Regular maintenance:
Valves that have been idle for a long time should be regularly inspected and maintained to prevent valve corrosion and damage. For valves that have been idle for too long, they should be tested together with equipment, devices, and pipelines before they can be used.
2. Protection protection:
To prevent the impact of other objects, manual manipulation and disassembly, if necessary, the movable parts of the valve should be fixed, and the valve should be packaged and protected.
3. Anti-corrosion treatment:
Take out the packing in the stuffing box to prevent the galvanic corrosion of the valve stem. The valve sealing surface, valve stem, valve stem nut, machined surface and other parts should be painted with anti-rust agent and grease according to the specific situation. paint.
Fourth, match the valve parts:
After the valve is missing parts, it cannot be dismantled to make up for the west. The valve parts should be arranged to create good conditions for the next use and ensure that the valve is in good condition.
Five, clean up the valve:
The inner cavity of the valve should be blown clean, free of residues and aqueous solutions, and the outside of the valve should be wiped clean, free of dirt, oil, and dust.
Remember the above five points, the problem of rust and damage to idle valves will definitely not bother you again~
