Edmonton, Alberta, Canada (December 20, 2010) – CRANE ChemPharma Flow Solutions™, a leading provider of highly engineered products for fluid handling applications worldwide, today announced that it has met the necessary requirements of the Provincial Boilers Branch and has secured Canadian Registration Numbers (CRN) for its Krombach Metal Seated Ball Valve (MSBV) giving it the ability to sell the product in Canadian markets.
“The Krombach Metal Seated Ball Valve is widely respected in the industry because of the features and benefits it provides our customers,” said Robert Marocco of CRANE ChemPharma Flow Solutions. “Thus, this is truly a great accomplishment for CRANE ChemPharma Flow Solutions, as it not only validates our products in the relevant market, but it also gives us the opportunity to provide a globally-recognized, standard industry product to our end users in Canada.”
CRANE ChemPharma Flow Solutions’ Krombach MSBV was designed for specialty chemical and mining applications. Featuring a two-piece design, its ball and seat are machined to such precise tolerances that ball and seat lapping does not have to be performed individually for each valve – making both the ball and seat freely interchangeable (if equal in nominal size). Additionally, its trunnion mounted ball design offers a polygon stem-to-ball connection which reduces stress and ensures optimal torque transmission. The Krombach MSBV also includes a self-cleaning system which removes excess particles, minimizes leakage, and extends product life.
