Henry, the proud owner of Hart b.v. for 30 years

Henry took over the business, now 30 years ago in 1991 from his father. At the time, Hart b.v was smaller (only 5 employees) and had stocks in Stainless Steels and Low Alloys.

New superalloys need careful purging during welding

Significant developments recently have resulted in the introduction of new nickel alloys that offer major improvements in mechanical properties. Not least is Inconel 740H1, an alloy offering enhanced resistance to coal ash and therefore of considerable interest to fossil fuel fired boiler manufacturers.

Applications of nickel alloys for piping and valves

Inconel alloys such as Inconel 625, 718 and X750 are widely for piping and valves in the offshore sector. Although these alloys are used widely for both internal and external corrosion resistance, they have different applications such as increasing mechanical strength, reducing friction and galling, facilitating cycling and mitigating fatigue stress.
