  • Most grades of stainless steel
  • Low carbon steel
  • Hastelloy
  • Titanium
  • Tantalum
  • Monel
  • Inconel
  • Copper based alloys

For general corrosion resistance the most common material used is stainless steel and quantities of Grades 304 and 316 are kept in stock to ensure fast deliveries. For other materials contact CALGAVIN for up to date delivery information.

Instructions and diagrams are provided for each specific application to secure the elements in place, together with the necessary securing wires, joining fittings and pulling rods. Tooling for fitting and removal of the elements are selected to meet the requirements of the particular application.
