Exhaust Valve Spindle standard full reconditioning procedure


1)  Sandblasting

2) Testing and inspection of markings to determine is Stellite type or Nimonic

3) Machining of the seat surface

3) Machining of fire side face (up to 6mm)

4) Preheating

5) Gradual build-up of fire side face using original material (up to 6mm)

6) Gradual rebuilding with Nimonic 80A (for Nimonic Type) or Stainless steel with Stellite #6  

    in way of seat area (for Stellite Type)
