HOUSTON (June 23, 2014) – Crane ChemPharma & Energy is pleased to announce the launch of the new Pacific®Forged range of gate, globe and check valves for use in Power, Oil & Gas and Chemical markets.
Developed specifically for high-stress, high thermal-cycling applications, new Pacific®Forged valves prove that not all forgings are equal. Crane’s unique forging process and next-generation design reduce the total cost of ownership, assuring consistent quality and long life for every valve.
The distinctive design of this new line offers numerous benefits to users, including:
- Superior Forging Quality (100% Tested): Multi-stage ultrasonic testing is standard on all forgings and finished valves, so customers can rely on consistent & continuous valve quality despite the most severe process conditions.
- Lower Cost of Operation: A contoured shape and a proprietary hard-face overlay process make Pacific-Forged valves resistant to cracks and delamination, reducing maintenance and plant downtime.
- Quick lead-time: 90% of our valve types can ship in less than 20 weeks.
“The next generation Pacific Forged valves complete our portfolio with the addition of a high-performance forged product range,” said Steve Brown, Global Business Line Manager for Crane ChemPharma & Energy. “Our customers will now benefit from lower operating costs and reduced downtime as a result of our unparalleled quality and superior pressure seal valve design.”
