Project Description

Steam Valve Springs

Application: Steam Reclaiming Valve Springs

Problem: Existing 17-7 ph Stainless steel spring design was breaking in 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


Understanding the cause of the failure necessitated the change in material, which resulted in a higher cost component, but the new design has eliminated the prior spring failure and the associated maintenance costs.
