Analysis of the valve using X-ray fluorescence shows that it is primarily Inconel, 73% Nickel, 19% Chromium, 2% Titanium 1.5% aluminum (could be surface contaminant) 1.5% iron...... Looking closely at the new valve OSI930 sent me shows evidence of a weld line at the seat area, I suspect its Stellite welded but will wait for test results. The new guide looks very much like copper, and I suspect its beryllium copper, but have not tested it yet. I work slow but results are worth the wait.
