Acid Resistant Valves At Everlasting Valve Company

Published August 21, 2020

acid valves

There are many industries in which valves are exposed to strong acids and other corrosives. These valves are critical components within their industrial applications, and have to be resistant to the acids. Otherwise, a valve could be quickly destroyed, bringing manufacturing or other processes to a halt.

Our acid resistant valves are designed to reliably, consistently operate in challenging environments. They do not just withstand acid; they work through temperature extremes, varying pressures, getting better with every actuation. As the rotating disc, self-lapping action takes place the seal tightens and any material, including acid, is pushed away.

Why Acid Resistant Valves Are Important

Many acids used in industrial settings can be extremely dangerous if not controlled. When using chemicals like hydrofluoric acid, which is used in refinery and chemical plants, the utmost care is crucial.

Valves are commonly a part of acid holding tank isolation. These valves need to maintain absolute isolation even in high temperatures and at high pressures, over long periods. It is a challenge for many valves to meet, and not a job for a generic, inexpensive valve.

Much like operators working with these materials protect themselves, valves must be protected too. The challenge is creating a valve that can resist substances that are capable of destroying most materials.

Valves are sensitive to even the smallest amounts of acid corrosion. Some valves are designed to withstand it as much as possible but ultimately, eventually fail. When valves are corroded due to acid or other harsh materials there can be leaks, contamination, and safety risks. Our valves help you eliminate acid corrosion instead of working around it.

We understand how critical acid resistant valves are, and why our clients are concerned that their valves meet stringent requirements. We work hard to pass every customer’s recommended practices plan and/or other safety concerns. Every acid resistant valve we make is carefully checked and tested, ensuring it will serve its purpose safely.

How Our Valves Work

Our valves are the world’s original self-lapping, rotating disc valve, designed for severe service. We believe that every industrial valve should be tougher than the environment it is in, and our acid valves showcase that principle.

You can use our acid resistant valves to replace any common valve type. Where globe, needle, plug, ball, check, relief, or butterfly valves are used in your plant, an Everlasting valve is an easy, effective swap.

Abrasives, solids, and other materials flow through the valve body without jamming. The rotating disc cycles through, cleanly discharging any accumulated media. While this happens, the sealing surface of the disc is in constant contact with the seat. All together this renews and polishes the seating, and tightens the seal.

These acid valves come to you with a tight, polished seal, eliminating the risk of leaks. Any time the valve is used, its mechanism works to improve the valve. So, our valves wear in instead of out, even when used with acids.

Of course, each valve is made with materials that will resist acids and other potentially damaging materials. You can rest assured that Everlasting Valve Company’s products are the perfect fit for your plant.

If you believe your environment calls for something we do not offer, we can create a custom design specific to your needs. We know that our clients want to feel absolutely certain that materials like acids are handled effectively. That’s why we work closely with our customers on every custom job, providing exactly what you need based on our proven design.

The Benefits Of Our Acid Resistant Valves

When valves fail it is always a problem, but if they fail in handling acids, the effects could be lethal. At best, acid valve failure will result in a costly, frustrating shutdown while workers deal with the issue. Industrial downtime can stretch into millions of dollars of lost profit, very quickly.

The other challenging part of working with valves is maintenance requirements, again which can shut a plant down for repair or servicing. Our valves are literally designed to be everlasting, with some remaining in service after many decades. When you use our acid resistant valves you will experience a major reduction in maintenance requirements, and virtually end the need for repairs.

Everlasting acid resistant valves offer unparalleled value. While they may cost more up front than a lesser-quality valve, you will not have to worry about repairing or replacing these valves. That is on top of the continuous service they offer, without downtime or lost productivity.
