We use our advanced ceramic materials to make high performance valve components for corrosive and abrasive fluid flows in demanding processing environments such as chemical processing, paper and pulp manufacturing and in oil and gas extraction and refining. The range includes options for ball valves, butterfly valves and rotary and linear control valves
Our valve components are made using Nilcra® Zirconia, an advanced ceramic material that is strong, tough and highly resistant to chemical reagents and abrasive slurries. It provides a reliable, high performance option where other materials tend to fail, even in the most challenging process applications, because it offers excellent resistant to cavitation, a major problem for process control valves.
Used for critical duties in high value processing environments, Nilcra® Zirconia valve components offer processors the potential for substantial savings in downtime and valve repair costs. As a result, processors and their equipment suppliers are increasingly demanding it for use in applications that use difficult chemicals such as sour oil, bitumen, bleached wood pulp, concentrated sodium hydroxide, bauxite (alumina), line slurries and sulphur dioxide (SO2).
