Replacing valves on equipment can be time-consuming and expensive. Many valves last less than a decade, and will last even less time if they corrode or break. Thankfully, there’s a solution to your breakage and replacement issues!

Stainless steel valves are a great alternative, and will reduce many of the issues facing normal plastic or brass valves. Here are a few key benefits of Everlasting Valve Company’s stainless steel valves to consider.

Cleanliness and Reusability

Stainless steel is very hygienic and is a favorite choice for food preparation, hospitals, and other places that need to keep things clean. Because they’re also corrosive resistant and durable, stainless steel valves are excellent for their reuse potential.

While you probably won’t be using these valves for food, it’s important to keep your systems clean. This is especially true if you change to handling different materials! You don’t want to contaminate new systems with old chemicals or products.

If you ever need to clean your system, equipment, or valves, stainless steel valves will be your friends. Where plastic will break and other metals will attract dirt, grease, rust, and other contaminants, stainless steel will keep clean and strong for years to come!

And because they’re resistant to corrosion and easy to clean, you’ll be able to reuse these valves if necessary.

Got an old system that you’re ready to ditch? If the valves are still in good condition, they’ll keep on working just fine in your new system! Just please be certain to clean and check the condition of your valves before reusing them.

Our Stainless Steel Valves

At Everlasting Valve Company, our process and diverter valves can be constructed to your specifications, including in stainless steel. Stainless steel has some advantages over other metals or plastics in some applications.

In industrial settings, stainless steel has become increasingly popular. Nothing gives you such a high performance for the money. Compared to cast iron, brass, PVC and other metal valves, stainless steel outperforms in tough environments and heavy industrial usages.

Stainless Steel Options for Process and Diverter Valves

Decades of field testing prove the Everlasting Valve Company’s valves in extreme environments. They significantly outperform other valves, handling slurry, chemicals, and dry solids with ease. Our process valves will work in the toughest of conditions, whether dirty, hot, cold, dry or wet. Give our metal seated valves your worst and watch them perform.

Both our process and diverter valves are available in stainless steel options. Your needs will dictate which is best, so don’t hesitate to contact us to discuss your requirements. We never stop working for our customers. We jump at the chance to develop innovative new features and trim to support the use of our process valves in new applications.

Building on our revolutionary self-lapping, rotating disc-valve technology, our diverter valves have been deployed in some of the harshest plant environments all over the world. Our valves are still going strong decades after they were first installed.

Our process valves are used all over the world for reactor loading, lock hoppers, pneumatic conveying systems, vessel discharge, and slurry applications in all types of extraordinarily harsh environments. They reduce costs and downtime, along with the assurance of a tight shut-off.

Stainless Steel and Extremes

In high-temperature environments, such as petroleum extraction and processing, the additional capital cost of stainless steel valves offsets the potential for premature replacement, repairs, and downtime caused by breakages. In processing or extraction, nothing is going to beat stainless steel for the money. With the types of steel we use at Everlasting Valve Company, the performance is only going to be even higher.

As well as high temperature, stainless steel is the best solution for high-pressure uses. Nothing within the same price range will come close to the performance that our stainless steel valves allow because of the material’s strength and resilience. They’ll survive where PVC, brass or other metals would fail and quickly succumb to cracks and damage.

Take note of your PSI requirements and if you need to operate at high PSI levels, buy appropriately. You can count on Everlasting stainless steel valves to be reliable and to out-perform cheaper material alternatives every time.

Corrosion and durability

Another huge advantage of stainless steel is corrosion resistance, even over carbon steel. It’s no coincidence that so much is made from stainless steel these days. Corrosion is a significant concern. Even household items, such as basins and cutlery, benefit from the incredible corrosion-resistance of stainless steel. With our steel blends, you’re getting an alloy that is specifically designed to resist corrosion when used in valves. This is the case even if their primary use is in wet and corrosive environments.

While plastics are corrosive free, they fail when it comes to durability. Stainless steel valves are incredibly durable compared to valves made of other materials. They are extremely strong, durable and robust. Everlasting stainless steel valves have no problems when used in hot or cold temperatures. Be specific about your needs when you get in touch with us and we can provide the ideal valve for your application.

When you choose to purchase an Everlasting valve made of high-quality steel, you can count on a functioning valve that will stay in excellent condition for a long time. Considering how durable and long-lasting stainless steel valves are, they are a very good investment that can become increasingly cost-effective.

We build our stainless steel Everlasting valves with hydraulic systems that prevent leaks. This is especially important when working with substances that could be toxic or otherwise harmful to people or the environment. Our stainless steel valves are designed to eliminate leaking, even when working at high pressures.

Custom Orders

Everlasting valves have many benefits, but one of the biggest bonuses of ordering one of our valves is that you can customize them exactly how you need them. While we offer pre-made valves, we are also able to help with whatever specifications or needs you might have.

Our expert engineering team can design valves to fit your needs, and we’re confident you’ll be happy with the results! A request for quote form is a great way to tell us what you need, so we can tell you what we can do. Whether you’re looking for ball valves, shut-off valves, or release valves, we’ve got you covered!

Although your initial costs will be higher for a custom valve, you’ll save yourself a lot of time and headache. By using a custom valve, you don’t have to change your whole system to fit something off the shelf. Even better, you don’t have to worry about using something subpar for the job at hand.

Jerry rigging a system together can be dangerous, and even if it works for a short time, might cost you a lot in the long run. Even if things don’t break down disastrously, using valves that aren’t the right fit can harm your whole system. And you don’t even want to think about the worst-case scenario!

The Everlasting Valve Company’s Steel

We subject our steel to detailed metallurgical selection, surface treatments, and hard coatings selected for durability. We select steels based on the temperature requirements of our customers. And custom valves can be built to withstand up to 1200F / 650c. We perform a comprehensive mechanical strength calculation that includes thermal expansion analysis.

Don’t settle for less than Everlasting valves. If you are replacing valves on a regular basis, the additional capital investment of an Everlasting stainless steel valve is going to be worthwhile. While many customers simply pull Everlasting valves off the shelf and press them into service, many others leverage our ability to customize our process valves to meet your precise needs and requirements.
