Wärtsilä expands valve range

Hydrocarbon Engineering,

Wärtsilä Shipham Valves has extended its full range of duplex and super duplex stainless steel valves to cover higher pressure ratings. This portfolio expansion means that Wärtsilä is able to provide customers with all the corrosion resistant valves needed for this entire project from a single source. This will significantly reduce both the costs and complexity of the procurement process.

The full product range of Wärtsilä Shipham Valves , including gate, globe, check, ball and butterfly valves, can now be specified in duplex and super duplex, with sizes ranging from 0.5 in. (15 mm) to 48 in. (1200 mm) and pressure ratings up to NASI 1500 lbs. With Wärtsilä’s expanded offering of duplex and super duplex valves, a broader scope of applcaitions requiring enhanced corrosion and erosion can now be handled.

Trevor Fairhurst, Business Development Director, said: “Wärtsilä Shipham Valves are known for their quality and focus on corrosion resistant materials. We are an acknowledged world leader in the design and manufacture of specialty non-ferrous, composite and high alloy material valves, for applications with seawater or other corrosive fluids. This expanded portfolio is the result of a two year investment and development process and means that we can now support a vast range of challenging applications”.
