Specialty Valves

There are commonly used valves and there are specialty valves. We’re here to clear up the confusion between the two so that you can optimize your processes and make the most of your resources.

A specialty valve could be considered any kind of valve that has a niche purpose or use. These are not the kinds of valves you would run into every day. They have been sought out specifically to meet a need that not everyone faces in their work. Typically, one might think of a specialty valve as something that can’t be found at the average hardware store or mass parts manufacturer, but something that takes a bit of effort and investment to source and use. Noting that, it’s also important to point out that specialty valves are supposed to be worth that effort and investment. They meet a need that would otherwise go unmet.

Everlasting Valves

At Everlasting Valve Company, each and every one of our valves is a specialty valve. While we certainly create products that suit common needs, like process valves, diverter valves, bulk material valves, and boiler blowdown valves, none of what we provide to our clients are what you would find anywhere else. There is no other valve like an Everlasting product. Here’s why.

We introduced the first self-lapping, rotating-disc valve back in 1906 and we’ve only been improving since. We have set the gold standard for severe service valves, creating a product unlike any other, while ensuring that our valves can be used in similar applications to common products like ball valves, gate valves, globe valves, and pinch valves.

Our valves, in whatever application they are used, wear in instead of out. That’s something unheard of in your average valve! It’s all thanks to that self-lapping, rotating action, which renews and polishes seating surfaces while wearing evenly to avoid the erosion and damage to which most valves eventually fall prey.

We want our valves to work for you, not the other way around. That’s why our team works in close consultation with our clients and with industry experts, to create a standard set of specialty valves that suit most needs. We are also proud to offer customized products to those who need them, all based on that self-lapping, rotating-disc technology that has proven itself time and time again in even the harshest conditions.

Investing in Specialty Valves

While we’ve worked hard to create valves that fit in with most plant environments and operations, they are, at heart, specialty valves. That means that our products may not always fit into your system without requiring any changes. If you’re trying to save money or make the most of your budget, you may be wondering why you should bother investing in a more expensive valve that could require extra effort on your part.

Even with the larger investment at the start, our valves will save you money over time — and that’s including any expenditures related to ensuring your system works with our specialty valves. It will cost more up-front, which we are comfortable sharing because client after client has found that the return on investment is quite positive. Without having to pay for valve replacements and repairs, and the downtime — unexpected and planned — that faulty valves create, your company will come out ahead. Our valves have been known to last for decades, which means you are looking at a long life of service for each of our specialty valves.

When we create a custom valve for a customer, we take a hands-on approach to disrupt your system as little as possible. We will come on site, evaluating your unique environment, your needs, and your challenges. With a flexible design and a highly talented, skilled engineering team, you can rest assured that Everlasting Valve Company’s specialty valves can be customized to your liking, leaving you with an investment that will withstand anything you can put it through.

Don’t let your company down with another broken valve, lost day of work, and irretrievable morale and productivity losses. Our specialty valves have what it takes so you can stop wasting time, stop worrying about what will break next, stop spending money on a regular basis, and get to work knowing that your equipment is tough, strong, and ready to do what you need it to do.
