Alloy valves for nuclear, marine and subsea applications
Valves for nuclear applications: Our valves comply with ASME Section III nuclear power plant components “N” stamp – classes 2 & 3 as well as ANSI B31.1 power piping codes. Our nuclear application valves also adhere to the 10CFR50 Appendix B & 10CFR21. Nuclear plants often require bellow seal valves for their CO2 reactor cooling circuits as well as to control radioactive waste water. Our valves are also suitable for Liquid Sodium Heat Exchange Circuit at Titanium Production Plants, Liquid Sodium Calciner Circuit at Magnesium Refining Plants, Decay Stores Containment, Nitric Acid Containment and Contaminated Stream Containersat Nuclear Power Plants, Liquid Sodium/Potassium ‘Alloy’ Decontaminator Circuits at Decommissioning Nuclear Plants. Other demanding requirements, such as Liquid Metal (PFBR), Fast Breeder Reactor (PFBR), Boiling Water Reactor (BWR) and Pressurized Water Reactor (PWR) are met by our range of exotic, high-pressure alloy valves.
Valves for marine and subsea applications:Our marine valves, suitable for subsea service are in similar to land based control valves, which are used to control the flow of material through a pipeline or other apparatus, but with the added addition of typically being reinforced to function and withstand their different submarine operational environment. Subsea valves are used in sub-marine environments, which can range from depths from shallow water (usually down to a depth of 75 meters) to deep water (a depth down to 3500 meters). Various industries use subsea valves with the oil, sea and gas sectors accounting for the majority. In most cases where there is a need to move material either from or to the seabed area or below.
