For all steam-boiler operations, you want the most effective valves you can find. It almost seems impossible to find that valve to clear away sludge and other impurities that build up in harsh applications. When you want the best replacement for valves, look no further than Everlasting Valve Co. for all of your steam valves.

Our original boiler blowdown valve was first manufactured over 100 years ago for the harshest of industrial applications. Since control is required for many applications involving industrial steam valves, these valves become a vital part of the process. Steam valves can be gate valves, ball valves, butterfly valves, angle valves, and more.

Traditional valves may work perfectly up to a point then cause failures you didn’t see coming. Certain of these types of valves are not suitable for sustained throttling applications. Suspended particles can settle and become trapped in body cavities in slurry applications, potentially leading to leakage or valve failure.

Other types of steam valves are unsuitable for high pressures or need ambient temperature compensation. Occasionally, thicker sludge may stop the movement of the disc, causing downtime that offsets any cost savings you may have initially enjoyed.

How Everlasting Boiler Blowdown Valves Make All The Difference

Don’t keep replacing your ball valves or gate valves with the same type of valve. They wear out quickly, especially in industrial steam applications. We’ve designed our steam valves to create an effective seal for far longer than traditional valves.

At Everlasting, our boiler blowdown valves avoid these traps. Our valves leverage our exclusive self-lapping, rotating-disc-valve technology. This technology was originally designed with boiler blowdown valves in mind but has spread, over the decades, to every type of valve we offer at Everlasting Valve Co.

Boiler blowdown valves at Everlasting have the exceptional ability to handle the sludge and the high temperatures and pressure produced by the boiler. This means our valves last significantly longer than others and do not always need to be changed during scheduled maintenance. This dramatically reduces your costs and production times.

At Everlasting, we offer boiler blowdown valves and diverter valves, process valves, and bulk material valves. They will replace valves you have in your plant operations, they will last longer and prove more reliable than any valve, even steam valves, you have used previously.

Our self-lapping, rotating-disc technology was introduced in 1906 and has been the gold standard for severe-service valves ever since. Each time the disc rotates, the action it produces renews and polishes the metal seating surfaces. Each Everlasting valve wears in, not out, which makes for a tighter seal every go-round. When other valves fail, ours keep on giving.

A variety of plant environments all around the globe use our valves. You can find these valves in applications, such as:

  • Cement Production
  • Petroleum Production
  • Petroleum Refining
  • Petrochemicals
  • Chemicals
  • Power Generation
  • and more

We’ve designed all of our valves to meet the crucial standards of any severe-service environment. Our steam-boiler-blowdown valves, the first valves ever produced by Everlasting Valve Co., meet ASME / ANSI Boiler & Pressure Vessel Code for blow-off service. The valves can replace any gate valve, ball valve, globe valve, or pinch valve in various applications.

When it comes to harsh and abrasive environments, our valves have yet to meet a material they can’t handle. From hot-catalyst handling to fluid-catalytic cracking, our valves handle all manner of slurry, sludge, dry solid, abrasive, or other erosive material you can think up. They perform perfectly every time. Everlasting valves beat other valves, hands down.

You may be wondering if Everlasting has the valves for your severe-service application. Even if we do not have what you need right now on our shelves, we will custom-build you a valve to meet your needs. Our engineering team is exceptionally talented. And because our valve technology is based on an extremely flexible design, we can create the valve you need.
