High Performance valves to be used on aircraft carrier

Harsh conditions and strict operational performance requirements form just part of the specifications which are needed to be met by the manufacturer of specialists valves to be used on a new aircraft carrier which is being built for use by the Indian Navy.

For this reason, specialist contractor Johnson Controls approached Wolseley's Valvestock business to supply the new valves and subsequently placed an order with them.

The company from Fareham in the south of the UK will supply a number of items including butterfly valves made from 316L stainless steel and nickel aluminium bronze, safety relief valves and pressure regulating equipment. They will also supply stainless steel fire safety valves and nickel aluminium bronze gate globe and check valves, all of which will be used on the new Indian carrier.

Before being delivered to the Indian Navy, the valves will have to undergo a number of conformance tests of which shock testing has already been completed for the butterfly valve made of 316L. The outcome of the test has approved the use of the valve for naval marine environments.

Commenting on the company's contract win, Valvestock's chief, Marcus Sampson said that winning such a large order has helped the company develop its export trade which builds on other recent foreign orders.
