LK Valves Improve the Design of Their Storm Valve Product Range
By removing the counter weight and replacing it with a spring, the weight of the product has been reduced by 40% compared to equivalent products in the market. The disc of the valve is vulcanised giving a reliable and resilient sealing. By avoiding the traditional tilted seat, the flow through the valves has increased by 10%.
Having engineered out the lead filled counter weight incorporated in previous models, the new design valves are now compliant with IHM/Green passport. Critical components, such as the innovative spring, are placed outside of the media for protection against corrosion, allowing easy inspection and maintenance - easier to handle and operate in tight places.
Available with 3.1 certification and Class certification if required, LK Valves AB are directly involved in the design, development and production of their new storm valve range. They are manufactured at their own production facility to ensure they meet with their high quality standard throughout the entire production process.
In-fact LK Valves has recently moved their manufacturing operation to a larger purpose built facility, the new factory has a total operational area of 4800 mē which includes the production area, warehousing and office space for testing and development. The contract was signed in June 2016, and the plant was inaugurated in October 2016.
This larger plant gives LK the ability to develop quality-testing processes and focus even more on the development of new, more efficient high-quality products. It was constructed based on expected growth in both the marine and industrial markets and moving forward will enable LK to meet the needs of its customers.
LK Valves & Controls has been the UK and Eire exclusive agent, stockist and distributor for LK Valves AB for over a decade and hold large stocks of the LK Valves extensive range of industrial and marine valves and strainers at their Liverpool premises for immediate dispatch.
