Titanium Valve Castings / March 2009

A typical example of non metallic bead blasting,used here to remove surface imperfections and marks on large titanium valve castings. The castings were brought into us after heat treatment, and following our blasting process they then went on to be 100% X-ray checked for internal cast imperfections. The Valves will eventually be used as part of the complex hydraulic systems aboard the new range of aircraft carriers currently being produced.
