Crane ChemPharma & Energy has announced the launch of the new Pacific® Forged range of gate, globe, and check valves for use in the power, oil & gas and chemical markets.
The valves are designed specifically for high stress, high thermal cycling applications. Crane’s unique forging process and next generation design reduce the total cost of ownership, assuring consistent quality and long life.
Crane highlights the benefits to users, which include:
- Superior forging quality (100% tested): Multi stage ultrasonic testing is standard on all forgings and finished valves, so customers can rely on consistent and continuous valve quality despite the most sever process conditions.
- Lower cost of operation: Contoured shape and a proprietary hard face overlay process make pacific forged valves resistant to cracks and delamination, reducing maintenance and plant downtime.
- Quick lead-time: 90% of Crane valve types can ship in less than 20 weeks.
Steve Brown, Global business line Manager for Crane ChemPharma & Energy, commented: “The next generation Pacific Forged valves complete our portfolio with the addition of a high performance forged product range. Our customers will now benefit from lower operating costs and reduced downtime as a result of our unparalleled quality and superior pressure seal valve design”.
