Ball Lapping

Ball Lapping

Ball Lapping

Would there be an issue of lapping lf2 ball w/tcc to a ss seat

RE: Ball Lapping

IMO, it may or may not be an issue depending on the valve type or the seat design for the ball valve. Any specific detail pf the ball valve in the application?

RE: Ball Lapping

i think the answer is if the ball is LF2 and the seat is SS, however both are TCC then there will be no issue.
however if the ball is TCC and the seat is not, then that will be a problem because the SS is much softer than the TCC
so the seat will wear out very quick and the ball won't get really lapped.
