In a commercial environment, quality water valves are important for safety and durability. Skimping on commercial water valves might save money up front. Every time you have to shut down your operations to replace a blowdown valve, however, you pay for the new valve and for the downtime, whether planned or in an emergency when a low-quality valve inevitably fails.

Research shows unplanned downtime can cost a company as much as $260,000 an hour. It also impacts your customers, with 46 percent of companies surveyed saying they couldn’t deliver services. Most companies, unfortunately, take a reactive approach to their equipment, rather than proactively investing in equipment with longevity like commercial water valves that are built to last.

When you are researching commercial water valves or making plans for your next round of equipment upgrades, remember that spending more on long-lasting valves now will ultimately benefit your budget, your uptime, and your client satisfaction in the long term. To find these amazingly durable, hardworking valves, look no further than what we offer at The Everlasting Valve Company.

The Benefits of Everlasting Boiler Blowdown Valves

Our commercial water valves are built with an understanding of how crucial the boiler blowdown process is in industrial operations. Without a consistent, functional boiler blowdown system, your equipment is subject to scale and corrosion as solids and sludge buildup. That buildup also contributes to failed pressure vessels, water hammers that damage equipment, and low water conditions. As much as you need to make boiler blowdown a routine part of maintenance, you need to be able to rely on your commercial water valves to work as expected.

Every valve made by Everlasting Valve Company, including our Boiler Blowdown Valves – which can be used as commercial water valves – stands up to the promise of our name. These valves are specifically built for the harsh conditions of industrial applications. They will withstand even the most challenging pressures, temperatures, and impurities.

Our valve discs are rotating and self-lapping, which means that in use, the rotating disc slides across the valve body removing boiler scale and other impurities, even in the thickest slurry. As the surface is cleared, this action cleans and polishes the valve and actually improves and tightens the seal. The open body design ensures that particulate to move freely instead of accumulating in the valve’s moving parts, and the rotating disc works to displace anything unwanted on or near the valve seat.

Our valves wear in, instead of wearing out. On the other hand, the globe valves often used as commercial water valves actually push dirt and scale into the valve seat, eventually causing failure.

Boiler blowdown piping typically calls for two slow opening valves or one quick opening valve and one slow opening valve in sequence, per bottom blowdown connection. However your boiler blowdown operations function, we have the right valve for you. Our commercial water valves are available in quick and slow opening functions, with straight or angle configurations, to suit steam boiler blowdown, surface blowdown, water column drains, and shut off and stop valves.
