Why are valves so critical for operations in the industrial setup? What parameters should be considered while selecting valves?

Many times selection criteria of valves are improper which leads to malfunction while working in the industry. It is very much important to share exact working condition of the valve such as fluid details (i.e. pressure, temperature, viscosity, density, its state - liquid or gas, etc) and final flow rate, ambient temperature. If valve fails then entire machine come to stand still or process plant may stop functioning.

How important are valves for ensuring safety and efficiency at the manufacturing site?

Constant & accurate feedback from valve to control room (which monitors entire plants operations as well as safety), periodic maintenance, and adequate & genuine spares are the key for ensuring safety at the manufacturing site.

We continuously monitor demands of various industries we serve. We collect their requirements and try to fit it with nearest possible product from our vast range of products. We simulate it using various software to achieve the desired result. The final result is converted to real product which goes into rigorous test at in-house and various reputed labs. After complete test & trials, final product comes into market along with required permissions & certifications. We cater to many types of industries but our main focus is on food & pharma.

What are the emerging trends in the product segments that you operate in?

Nowadays customers are asking for safety certification to almost all the products which so far in last 56 years no one has ever asked for it and that too in general categories of the valves.
