Oxygen service valves
We have extensive experience of providing valves for hazardous areas, in particular those found in the iron and steel industry
Our experience of providing valves for hazardous areas is second to none. This expertise is especially relevant to the iron and steel industry, where oxygen service valves are needed.
Oxygen service has many inherent dangers. All materials will react with gaseous or liquid oxygen at certain temperatures and pressures. The reaction that occurs can cause a fire or even worse an explosion, making it vital for companies supplying valves to the steel industry to have a thorough understanding of system processes and material properties. Clearly the selection of the wrong valve material could have disastrous consequences.
Thanks to the hazardous area knowledge and understanding we have built up over many years, our valves have proven themselves to be extremely reliable, rugged and efficient in steel production plants, where they meet the very highest standards of safety and performance. Recent contracts include the supply of valves to two of India’s largest steel production units, the Nagamar plant and SAIL’s Rourkela plant.
Before dispatch, all Orseal valves for the iron and steel industry are subjected to a rigorous process of ultra-cleaning to remove any grease or other materials that might react with oxygen.
