The shipping - shipbuilding industry

What is most important for valves used on product- and chemical tankers in the shipping - shipbuilding industry? That the valves maintain a tight shut-off to avoid any mixing of cargo.

This is where SOMAS triple-excentric butterfly valves enter the picture, used in the loading/unloading system. Combining unbeatable tightness with minimal wear on disc and seat makes the butterfly valves a perfect match. The most common material used in the seat is metal, but depending on the cargo a soft seat (PTFE) may be used.

The Cargo valves are perfect for the shipping - shipbuilding industry. The cargo valves are operated either by hydraulic actuators  or gears. These have a special surface treatment enabling them to operate in a marine environment.
