Filler Materials for rebuilding and hard facing of Valves, Valve Spindles &Valve

Valves and Valve seats of Diesel engines are subject to wear by high temperature and metal to metal friction

Depending on Welding equipment available use on of the following alloys

  • SMAW 1 : 290 (Ni based alloy) as build up and or final layer
  • GTAW: 290 -GTAW as build up and or final layer/406 (CO 6 ) as final Top layer
  • PTA : ARCWEL 2006- PTA -Powder

Above filler metals can increase the lifetime of Valves many times

Piston Crown -Welding Repair Solutions

Piston Crowns made from alloy steels are subject to high temperatures ,and friction.

The surfaces tend to wear down and need to be rebuilt .

Depending on Equipment available the following filler materials are suitable for rebuilding piston
crowns.

SMAW PROCESS

  • ARCWEL 350 – SMAW (220-250 HB)
  • ARCWEL 450- SMAW (HRC 45)

GMAW PROCESS

  • ARCWEL 350—GMAW /FCAW

Laser

  • ARCWEL 2040 LAS (HRC 40 Ni base)
  • ARCWEL 2006 LAS ( HRC 40 Co Base )

Worn Piston crown totally rebuilt using
The SMAW process (ARCWEL 355)

Recommendations:

  • Clean surface to be rebuilt by grit blas
