The Complete Valve Package
Partnering with Valveforce means that you have one point of contact for all your valve needs:
The Paper and Pulp Industry has numerous applications for high quality valves, especially high-performance butterfly valves, ball segment valves and rotary control valves. This is because steam applications are used for the production of chemical market pulps to making high quality stock.
In corrugating machines, steam is used to provide heat which is necessary in the forming, bonding and conditioning processes.
Ball segment valves with stellite seats are used in the stock preparation area where abrasive contaminants are often found.
Screening Process and Stock Dosing Areas
In the screening process and stock dosing areas will use ball segment valves but with a more standard PTFE seat; blow line valves, liquor circulation valves, pulp flow valves. This is also a requirement for the screening and bleaching plant.
Where additives are added to the application, they can become arduous so particular attention should be paid to the valves in this area as often hard faces are required or even ball sector valves with ceramic inserts.
Safety compliance is paramount and Valveforce can easily control and maintain these high standards by our experts selecting the appropriate valves. Often there are applications where throttling differential pressure is high; Valveforce understands these applications and will specify a ball segment valve with a unique low trim to break down the pressure gradually. This will eliminate the problems with noise cavitation and erosion.
In a vacuum service pipe dimensions are often large, so a high-performance butterfly valve is the most economical final control element. The same applies to the large pipe dimensions in screening, centricleaning and where stock consistency is below 5%.
High performance butterfly valves are also used as steam control and mains isolation.
For general isolation of water systems and compressed air lines we stock a comprehensive range of knife gate and wedge gate valves.
At Valveforce we have capabilities to aid the Paper and Pulp Industry with their most demanding valve and flow control valve problems.
Whether you need to find a cost-effective globe control valve in stock for same day despatch or a ceramic lined ball segment valve for very arduous and aggressive media, Valveforce are here to help.
