5 Benefits Of Custom Valves For Industrial Systems

Published May 31, 2021

Buying custom valves comes with many benefits. Just as you seek out custom jeans and tailor your new cars to your heart’s desire, you can modify your valves. All of custom valves’ benefits wouldn’t be able to fit in one article. So we narrowed the list down to five. Learn about these benefits by giving this article a read.

1. Easy Assembly

Custom valves are easy to assemble. The valves and fittings come as one component so it’s easier to put the whole thing together. A single component means it takes less time to assemble the unit because there aren’t multiple fittings and valves to put together. Custom valves can be used in various industries related to instrumentation, semiconductor applications, and hydraulic and pneumatic applications.

2. Safety

Custom valves put safety first. In many manufacturing industries (perhaps including your own), workers operate extremely closely to fittings that have hazardous chemical fluids. You can prevent leakages with custom industrial system valves. They block the reverse flow and stop harmful chemicals from blending. These valves perform more effectively because there’s no leakage. Fluids at different temperatures can pass through them without causing any damage or corrosion.

3. Efficiency

Every industry uses different fluids and materials. These are transferred through the valves and fittings that are then subjected to varying temperatures and pressures. Custom-made valves and fittings are designed to withstand rapid changes in pressure and temperature. Custom valves are thereby more efficient than their standard counterparts.

4. Reduced Space

Standard-sized valves and fittings require many components for fixtures. They use more space. Custom-made valves, on the other hand, use the least amount of space. The entire assembly can be designed and made so that the end product has minimal components. Fewer components mean there’s less to pay for than for standard valves and fittings.

5. Less Contamination

Foreign material in the valves and fittings can compromise the whole system’s performance. The end product won’t be up to snuff as a result. Custom valves eliminate potential leak points. There are thus fewer chances of contamination. Particles in fluids can contact and stick to surfaces. Abrasion, leakage, and other problems can then occur. Prevent those contamination-based mishaps with specialized valves.

Everlasting Will Come To You To Create Custom Valves To Fit Your System

Everlasting Valve Company is known for quality. Our products are renowned for their high-quality, durability, and longevity. We are the valve manufacturer you want on your side when things go wrong. Our goal is to see that your company operations run smoothly.

Over the years, our company has been producing the best in industrial valves. Our American-made products, of which we are most proud, are known throughout the world. But we do not rest on our past achievements. Today’s industrial valves must work harder, go farther, and last longer. We ensure that our valves continue to do just that. We process some of the best severe service valves on the market today.

Where once ball valves, pinch valves, knife-gate valves, and globe valves were the industry standard, we have replaced them with products far superior. And we specialize in creating custom valves so that you get robust valves that are perfect for your application.

Boiler Blowdown Valves

This type of valve is meant to work even when it encounters the worst of thick slurry. Harmful boiler scale and other particles are cleared out because of the rotating disc which moves smoothly across the body of the valve during operation. The post packing is self-adjusted, which reduces leakage and the need for maintenance.

Our boiler-blowdown valves are available in slow-opening, quick-opening, straight, and angle configurations. If you are looking at applications that require steam-boiler blowdown, water-column drain, shut-off and stop valves, these are the valves you need.

Diverter Valves

These types of valves will last you forever. Some of our diverter valves are still working hard decades after installation. That is because diverter valves are built on our self-lapping, rotating-disc-valve technology. The self-cleaning design of the diverter valve allows them to work longer and perform better than traditional diverter valves.

Diverter valves can be switched out quickly if needed, which means there is little to no downtime with them. Diverter valves are perfect for pumping or conveying to multiple vessels or storage silos. In applications where abrasive solids and erosive slurry are a problem, our diverter valves will keep working. With their unique open-body design, our diverter valves allow plenty of room for everything to flow through and discharge cleanly.

Process Valves

For the toughest, dirtiest, hottest jobs you’ve got, we have the process valves to match. It’s business as usual when you employ our process valves in these harshest of environments. That’s because our process valves feature a unique open-body design that’s self-cleaning. The seats wear in, not out. The rotating disc glides smoothly across the body of the valve, clearing out all of the harmful scale and minute particles while cleaning the surfaces.

Our process valves are used all over the world. You’ll find them in lock hoppers, pneumatic conveying systems, reactor loading, vessel discharge, and slurry applications. The performance of our process valves stands out in any harsh and difficult environment.

Bulk Material Valves

Everlasting Valve Company’s bulk material valves go where you have the highest-temperature, highest-cycling, and most abrasive situations. You won’t find a better performing bulk valve. Ours is built on our self-lapping, rotating-disc-valve technology, making it one seriously tough valve.

The bulk material valve features an open-body configuration, which allows for particulate to move freely. In turn, this allows the valve to be cleaned easily and all particles are expelled as the valve opens. The valve has a unique shearing action, which clears the disc face, forming a seal that only becomes tighter. This assures a tight shut-off and virtually no leaks. Because our bulk material valves perform better with each disc rotation, they are perfect for high-cycling applications. They get tougher and stronger with each cycle.
