Jone is a hydraulic customer from the United States. His company has recently developed a hydraulic relief valve suitable for machines with high impact and high load. Because of the high requirements of working conditions, the steel used for the hydraulic relief valve has not been approved yet. They have been testing in the local hydraulic relief valve manufacturers in the United States for several weeks. Due to the high cost of proofing in the United States, they want to turn to Chinese hydraulic relief valve manufacturers for sampling and testing.
Jone compared more than 10 hydraulic relief valve manufacturers and selected 3 to make samples. After receiving and testing the samples of hydraulic relief valves, none of them can meet the requirements of service conditions, and the test results are much worse than those of local manufacturers in the United States. Although these 3 hydraulic relief valve manufacturers changed the materials and improved the parameters, the toughness and plasticity of the steel still did not meet the working conditions, and Jone and his team were at a loss what to do.
His friend Tom recommended him to contact AAK hydraulic valve for a try. Jone sent us an email with a try attitude. According to his hydraulic relief valve drawings and the working conditions with large impact force and high load, our engineers were not 100% sure, but were 90% sure, giving 2-3 weeks.
Two weeks later, AAK successfully sent 6 hydraulic relief valve samples. On the 3rd day after Jone received the hydraulic relief valve samples, we received an email that the samples of hydraulic relief valve passed the performance test. AAK spent 2 weeks to try over 10 kinds of steels, and finally determined to replace 40Cr with 35CrMo steel. The high toughness and plasticity parameters of 35CrMo well match the working conditions of this hydraulic relief valve. At the same time, 35CrMo has high static strength, impact toughness and high fatigue limit, and the long-term working temperature can reach 500 ℃. Jone was surprised that the samples of more than 10 hydraulic relief valve manufacturers in China were not successful. Even if the local manufacturers in the United States spent 4 weeks but still failed, how can AAK succeed in 2 weeks one time?
The reason why AAK hydraulic relief valves can do what the domestic factories in the United States failed to do, because:
1. AAK has full-time material engineer who is specially responsible for material screening, comparison, testing and docking with the materials research institute.
2. Good materials also need good processing. The heat treatment method adopted by AAK for 35CrMo alloy steel is 845 ℃ annealing, 860 ℃ quenching (oil quenching) and 200 ℃ low temperature tempering. After this special heat treatment, its hardness and wear resistance are increased by at least 50%.
3. AAK technical team has engineers from the global top 10 hydraulic valve industry. They have their own experience in material selection, production drawing design and production line quality control.
AAK hydraulic relief valves, high load and high impact resistance, you can also have a small try!
