SVF Flow Controls Explains Surface Roughness for Valves Intended for Special Applications

Socketed and flanged ball valves for industrial process control
Vales utillized in industrial processes
can require special materials or finishes.
Fluid control operations can sometimes require special materials of construction or finishes for piping and specialties, like valves. A segment of the industrial valve manufacturing sector specializes in providing fluid control valves with coatings, surface finish, and materials of construction suitable for the requirements of applications not well serviced by more common constructions.

One manufacturer, SVF Flow Controls, has published a short article explaining some of the basics about surface finish. The article defines surface finish and goes on to describe some of the methods employed to achieve various levels of surface roughness and texture. The article, included below in its entirety, is short and informative.
