The Oxy-Nitride stem is ideally suited to reclaimed water applications and a wide range of other applications where mineral-build up is a concern.
When minerals build-up on stems, it can cause potential maintenance problems and operational malfunctions. The Oxy-Nitride treated stainless steel stem is the perfect solution. Its specialized proprietary aerated salt bath treatment will reduce or prevent mineral build-up allowing the stem to stroke freely as it passes through the guide bushing. The Oxy-Nitride stem also increases surface hardness as well as wear, fatigue and lubricity.
