Baton Rouge, Louisiana, (November 5, 2012) – CRANE ChemPharma Flow Solutions® is pleased to offer WTA® automated valve packages and valve repair at its Baton Rouge Service Center location.

The Baton Rouge Service Center’s factory-trained technicians deliver quick in-house service and provide fast-response field repair at the customer’s option. Coinciding with demand, WTA® Chlorine Valves Type EC11.35 are now available to the North American customers from in-market inventories.

“In-market inventories and fast, expert service supporting WTA® processing solutions are important for our North American strategy,” explained David Shepherd, Director of Sales, Americas of CRANE ChemPharma and Energy Flow Solutions “The Chemical processing industry demands valves that help minimize maintenance and down-time while limiting risk of environmentally hazardous emissions, and proximity of service personnel and relevant inventory is important to our customers.”

CRANE’s product portfolio is now expanded further thanks to its acquisition of W.T. Armatur GmbH, located in Maxdorf, Germany. The WTA® brand product range includes Bellows Sealed Globe Valves, Changeover Valves, and Chlorine Valves, and is supported by a corresponding Actuation offering.

Bellows Sealed Globe Valves provide reliable fugitive emission protection for use in chemical processing including Chlor-Alkali, Phosgene and Fertilizer applications. With CRANE WTA® being one of four manufacturers globally whose products meet the new Euro Chlor Standard, WTA® valves comply with the demanding specifications for Bellows Sealed Globe Valves for Chlor-Alkali applications.
