Uranus B6 and S1 — an alloy overview

Looking for a valve in this exotic alloy? Find it in the following configurations: Ball, Butterfly, Cast, Check, Control, Cryogenic, Custom made, Foot, Forged, Gate, Globe, Needle, Plug, and Safety relief, as well as Strainers.

Alloy Valve Stockist supplies uranus B6 and S1 gate, globe, check, ball, butterfly, plug, needle and custom made valves.

As a valve stockist, we stock, supply and distribute valves in exotic materials such as titanium, hastelloy, duplex, super duplex, monel, incoloy, inconel, alloy 20, 254 SMO, 6 Moly,tantalum, zirconium, uranus, 904L both in stock and can also deliver against tight lead times.

The combination of chromium, tungsten, molybdenum, nitrogen and copper, make it possible to design a super-austenitic stainless steel with mechanical properties equivalent to the alloy 625 and with very high corrosion resistance properties. Due to 22% Ni and 0.4% N additions, the new URANUS® B66 (UR B66) alloy exhibits a very stable microstructure, less prone to intermetallic phase precipitations than the other highly alloyed austenitic stainless steels. The UR B66 alloy has improved corrosion resistance properties compared to 6 Mo grades particularly in sea water and chlorinated sea water. Due to the optimum “cocktail” of alloying elements, the grade can be used in most very severe corrosive environments where it behaves almost equivalent or better than alloy 625.

Uranus valves come in varying grades, including 45N. Examples of alloys in the Uranus® grade series include: UR® 2202 – A new economic lean duplex stainless steel with high strength and good corrosion resistance, UR® 66 – A superaustenitic stainless steel with very high corrosion resistance, outperforming nickel base alloys in many oxidizing environments and UR® S1 – a high silicon austenitic steel for demanding applications in nitric acid environments.
