Valve Degreasing Method
1 Cleaning Steps
The valve parts must go through the following processes before the assembly:
1.1 According to the processing requirements, some parts need to be polished and the surface should not have processing burrs, etc.;
1.2 All parts are degreased;
1.3 After degreasing is completed, pickling and passivation is carried out, and the cleaning agent does not contain phosphorus;
1.4 Rinse with pure water after pickling and passivation. There should be no residues of chemicals. This step is omitted for carbon steel parts;
1.5 Use non-woven cloth to dry the parts one by one and do not leave the surface of the parts such as wire bristles, or blow dry with clean nitrogen;
1.6 Use non-woven fabric or precision filter paper dipped in analytical pure alcohol to wipe each part until there is no dirty color.
2 Assembly Requirements
The cleaned parts must be sealed and stored for installation. The requirements for the installation process are as follows:
2.1 The installation workshop must be clean, or a temporary clean area within the workshop needs to be set up by resorting to solutions such as applying newly purchased color striped cloth or plastic film, etc., to prevent dust from entering during the installation process.
