Success for Hydravalve at Valve World Expo 2018
Hydravalve showcased their first ever priced Process Valves & Actuation catalogue to an international audience at the most renowned European valve and actuator show, Valve World Düsseldorf.
For the exhibition, Hydravalve coordinated with a European partner to build and install a bespoke modular stand. The visual design and graphics were all produced in-house by Hydravalve’s Creative department. Displayed on the stand were two bespoke stainless steel fabrications built in a ‘Christmas tree’ design but showcasing process and actuated valves, which added a unique feature to the stand. The stand also included core actuators such as the Prisma aluminium, polyamide and stainless steel 0°- 90° rotation pneumatic actuators and the J+J J3CS true multi-voltage electric actuator. Also displayed were 30° and 60° v-balls to suit the Haitima 2013ND and 2019D stainless steel ball valves. The precision of v-balls offers equal percentage flow characteristics, that aren’t normally associated with a standard ball valve.
The ball can be positioned anywhere between 0° and 90° allowing the user to control and achieve the desired flow rate they require. Furthermore, when fitted with a modulating electric or pneumatic actuator this will provide a greater flow control accuracy than a standard bore ball valve. Plans for the show began early in 2017, where the management team had engaged in regular meeting to discuss the different variations of proposed designs before signing off the final visuals.
“With it being our first European show outside the UK, we really wanted to make an impression whilst ensuring our stand reflects Hydravalve’s core ethics of quality and excellence. From the positive feedback gained at the show, I was very pleased with mine and the teams’ effort” said Marketing Manager, Daryl Patel.
Whilst present at the expo and the follow-up after the show, the sales team recognised a growth of enquiries and orders for key core exclusive products such as the J+J true multi-voltage electric actuators and the Young Tech Co. electro-pneumatic positioners. There were also a growth of new enquiries and online orders from international customers that would appear to be from Hydravalve’s presence at the show.
New Managing Director, Edward Newham comments on the 2018 Valve World and future shows. “It’s difficult to gauge the true success of the show at this stage. However, the short-term success has been very promising with a large number of ongoing enquiries on our key core products and an increase in export from our web sales. We’ve also set up exclusive partner from the Middle East who will be a distributor for our products. Regarding the future, Valve World is something we simply can’t afford to miss, as it’s the perfect platform for Hydravalve to showcase on an international scale.”
Plans are already in place for Valve World Düsseldorf 2020 with Hydravalve submitting their proposed space.
