50 Year Durability From Duvalco

Despite the environment, this valve is still operational.

Choosing the correct valve for the service is key to ensuring the longest possible service life. At Duvalco we pride ourselves on the quality of our range and the years of technical experience that enable us to help our customers select the best valves for their needs.

With our in-house rubber manufacturing and vulcanisation we can pair a wide variety of liner and disc combinations for our butterfly valves to be used in a vast range of applications.

Recently we visited a salt processing facility where there are dozens of our butterfly valves installed, some of which have been there since the plant was built in the late 1960ís. Despite many years of arduous service in a corrosive environment, a good number of these are still functioning and keeping the plant running. We are now looking at a programme of replacement and refurbishment of these valves which will keep the plant running for many years to come.

Reliability thatís keeping the Navy afloat
We are also working on another project involving the refurbishment of 72 valves, ranging from DN250 to DN600. These valves have seen almost 15 years of maintenance free service in the ballast system of a Royal Navy vessel. Each of the bronze bodied valves has received a new vulcanised liner and most have just been cleaned up before being returned back into service. These valves are critical to the running of the vessel, so reliability and extended service life are paramount to the Royal Navy.

Selecting the correct valve, manufactured to the highest standards is as important today as it was when these valves were originally installed.

Our UK team are here to help with your enquiries and our technical experts are always on hand.
