A gate valve, also referred to as a sluice valve, opens by lifting a barrier (gate) out of the path of the fluid. Gate valves need very little space along the pipe axis and barely restrict the flow of fluid when the gate is fully opened.
Quite different from a ball valve, it is a type of valve that regulates the flow in a pipeline. It consists of a movable plug or disc element and a stationary ring seat in a usually spherical body.
Used to only allow the flow of fluids in one direction, Check valves have two ports, one as an inlet for the fluid or media and one as the output. Since they only allow a flow in one direction, they are often referred to as ‘one way valves’ or ‘non return valves.
Mainly used to catch debris such as scale, rust, jointing compounds and weld metals in pipelines which further reduces plant downtime and maintenance. In steam and condensate systems, damage to plants is frequently caused by pipeline debris that finds a way into the system of pipelines. Strainers arrest these solids in flowing media, safeguarding equipment from any harmful effects. A strainer is usually fitted upstream of every steam trap, flowmeter and control valve.
Balancing Valves (Static or Dynamic)
These maintain flow conditions so that control valves function properly in HVAC systems. An unbalanced system can lead to fluctuation in temperature variations among rooms which further cause a spike in energy requirements. We offer a line of balancing valves that help heating and cooling systems that cost less and perform efficiently.
Auto Flow Regulators (Dynamic Balancing)
Automatic balancing valves are the ideal choice for two-pipe heating and cooling systems which generate continuous flow and various pressure changes. Once installed, auto flow regulators optimize the system by controlling the differential pressure under all possible loads. When combined with pre-setting valves, it ensures the correct flow through each radiator, and floor heating loop or cooling Terminal Unit for the best possible temperature control, energy savings and noise reduction.
These are from the family of valves that are also known as quarter-turn valves. When the valve is fully open or closed, the disc is rotated a quarter turn. The “butterfly” valve is a metal disc mounted on a rod. When the valve is closed, the disc is turned so that the passageway is completely blocked off.
We offer a comprehensive portfolio of ball valves that are not only long lasting but safely operate in harsh conditions. Our partners manufacture valves with maximum safety and environmental protection in every design, achieved by using corrosion-resistant materials, fire-safe testing, blowout-proof stems and tight shut-off features.
Rubber Expansion Joints
A Rubber Expansion Joint is flexible connector that is made of natural or synthetic elastomers,
fluoroplastics and other fabrics, to absorb movements in a piping system while containing
pressure and fluid or media running through it. Thermal growth, movement and vibration, or pressure pulsation cause movement in the pipeline system. When this movement is not able to be absorbed by the pipeline system, a rubber expansion joint is required and is always the perfect solution.
We bring you a complete range of expansion joints in all sizes, materials and shapes to meet any industrial application.
SS Flexible Hoses (For Steam & FCU)
Flexible stainless steel hoses are extremely resistant against pressure, internal chemical corrosion and external abrasion owing to the stainless steel inner corrugated tube and one or two outer braids.
Air Release Valves
These function to release air pockets that collect at each high point of a high pressure pipeline. An air release valve can open against internal pressure, because the internal lever mechanism multiplies the float force to be greater than the internal pressure. This greater force opens the opening whenever air pockets accumulate in the valve. Air Release Valves are essential for water hammer protection and an efficient pipeline system.
These continuously release air and gas that build up inside water supply pipes. Air vents feature a relatively small opening and are suitable for discharging air and other gases during normal operation. By installing them in places where air usually accumulates, it is possible to prevent issues caused by air trapped in water supply pipes.
Pressure Independent Control Valve
This is an automatic temperature control valve and an automatic flow controlling valve packaged in one. As a normal actuated temperature control valve, a ball valve with a characterised insert performs, and a pressure control cartridge provides automatic flow management to maintain a steady flow of hot or cold water regardless of system pressure change. Systems with pressure independent control valves do not need to be balanced and re-balanced, as they regulate and maintain a constant flow to the coil as water pressure in the system varies with the changing loads.
Pressure Reducing Valves
They are used in residential, commercial, institutional, and industrial applications. Pressure Reducing Valves are designed to limit incoming water or steam pressure to a fixed downstream level that is more stable and constant. The downstream pressure is determined by a pressure control setting on the valve or by an external sensor, depending on the type of valve.
A flange makes it easy to construct a piping system by linking pipes, valves, pumps and other devices. They also provide convenient access for maintenance and modification. Usually welded or screwed, flanged joints are made by fastening two flanges together with a single gasket as a sealant.
Pressure Gauges and Thermometers
These measure the pressure in media such as gas or liquid. Mainly used in industrial environments, pressure gauges are essential devices in any plant. We provide pressure gauges, dial thermometers and combined pressure/temperature gauges to suit all industrial applications.
