The Use Of Valves In South Africa
Wherever the flow of liquids or gases needs to be monitored or controlled you can be sure that there are valves involved in the process at some point. Industries in South Africa that use valves include the oil and gas industry, power generation and mining, as well as the supply of both potable water and water for industrial use. Valves are also extensively used for the flow control of sewage.
Although originally valves were extremely simple today they have evolved in precise and in many cases extremely complex pieces of equipment. Given the complexity of the modern industrial processes that we all rely on to maintain our standard of living, selecting the correct valve for the correct use is simply essential for the smooth running of many industrial and manufacturing processes.
Today valves in South Africa are in use which can withstand conditions that would have caused the equipment of only a decade ago to fail extremely quickly. Some of these valves are specifically designed to withstand extremely corrosive conditions, which others can withstand extremely high heating conditions or extreme cold. Think of what would happen if the valves on an arctic habitat failed when the scientists were in residence or if the valves in South Africa controlling to flow of flammable material at Sasol had to fail.
The sheer range of valves that are today available is staggering, butterfly valves, knife gate valves and pressure relief valves are only some of the units that industry is today relying on to keep output high and guard the safety of workers who are often in close proximity to hazardous substances.
When choosing a supplier of valves it is important to note that the valves themselves are only a single part of a usually extremely complex industrial process. The supplier of the valves in South Africa should have at least a working knowledge of the industrial process in question. Always make sure that the supplier has an excellent reputation for the supply of world class, proven valve solutions.
