What makes seawater


aggressive toward AWWA
valves, or specifically,
toward metallic wetted
parts of any valve?
SWA

Chloride Levels
80% of Dissolved Solids in Seawater are
Sodium Chloride - 1/3 Sodium Ions, and
2/3 Chloride Ions
Chloride Ions Present in Seawater Range
from 18,000 to 19,200 ppm
Bray Controls Currently Handles
Chloride Levels in Excess of 70,000 ppm

Coating

SWA

Nylon 11 Coating Advantages


Less Expensive Alternative to Nickel Aluminum
Bronze and Duplex Stainless Steel
Excellent Corrosion Resistance
Excellent Impact and Abrasion Resistance
Proven in Seawater Service
No Corrosion After 20 Years Exposure
Excellent in Salt Spray Environments
No Corrosion After 2000 Hours Exposure
SWA

Nylon 11 Coating Advantages


Thermoplastic Produced from Vegetable Base
Low Coefficient of Friction Resulting in Lower
Seating and Unseating Torques
Not Subject to Ultraviolet Deterioration
FDA / NSF-61 Approved for Sanitary Applications

Nylon 11 vs. Rubber Covered Discs


Nylon 11 Applied Uniformly and Continuously
Over the Entire Disc Surface.
vs.
Rubber (a) Lapped on Disc Surface and Edge,
then Machined.
or
(b) Bonded to Disc Substrate and Disc
Edge is a Corrosion Resistant Metal.
Both Resulting in a Lack of Continuous
Integrity of the Coating on the Disc and
Exposure of Areas to Seawater Attack.
SWA

Nylon 11 vs. Rubber Covered Discs


Nylon 11 Disc Edges have Lower Coefficient of
Friction than Rubber Covered and Metal Disc Edges
Resulting in Lower Seating and Unseating
Torques.
Nylon 11 Discs and Rubber Seats Form Better Seal
at Higher Pressures than Rubber Discs and Seats.

SWA

Nylon 11 vs. Rubber Covered Discs


Nylon 11 Discs do NOT Allow Barnacle Growth.
Rubber Covered Discs Allow Barnacle Growth which
Results in Cutting of the Seat Upon Opening
and
Closing.
Nylon 11 is Thermoplastic and will NOT Age with
Temperatures below 200 oF. Sulfur Cured EPDM
will Age.
Nylon 11 is Inert.
