Project Description

Steam Valve Springs

Application: Steam Reclaiming Valve Springs

Problem: A potential customer’s existing 17-7 ph Stainless steel spring design was breaking in valve operation.

The MWI Solution:

  • Performed extensive testing and failure analysis
  • Developed replacement spring design using Inconel 718
  • Implemented component-specific load testing procedures to ensure 100% compliance with very tight load requirements


The valve spring in question was failing due to the material of the spring. A simple upgrade in material eliminated the prior spring failure and any associated maintenance costs.
