Leeds Valve Supplies £1m order ahead of schedule



Leeds Valve, the British Butterfly Valve manufacturer, has recently delivered a major order of bespoke High Performance Butterfly Valves two weeks ahead of schedule to the Emirates Aluminium Smelter Complex, UAE.

The order worth over £1m was for a range of High Performance Butterfly Valves and baffle plates in sizes from 400mm to 1500mm, all manufactured from ASTM A 890 6A Super Duplex Stainless Steel.

The valves will be installed at the US$7billion Emirates Aluminium Smelter Complex on sea water duty and will be used as flow control valves in combination with baffles to regulate the back pressure in circulating and raw water service lines.

George Burns, Leeds Valve Technical Director, says; “The specification called for a unique combination of low noise and anti-cavitation valve trim, baffles and valve to actuator weight ratio restrictions, as well as special actuator controls and air fail systems. At Leeds, we were able to combine all these requirements in a cost effective design package and hence won the order.”
This represents yet another significant step forward for Leeds Valve since the acquisition by Flow Group in October 2007. Not only have Leeds Valve dramatically improved the on time delivery of orders to over 95% on time, but also they have upgraded their Quality Management System and are now approved by Lloyd’s Register Quality Assurance to ISO 9001:2008.
