Parker Bestobell Marine has developed a new range of high pressure, cryogenic valves which has been fully approved for use in the marine sector.
The valves can withstand pressures of up to 625 bar and vary from half an inch to three inches wide. The range includes manual, gearbox operation, single actuator and tandem actuator valves.
Duncan Gaskin, Market Development Manager for Parker Bestobell Marine, explained, “We developed these valves in collaboration with a number of shipbuilding companies which required them for the MAN ME-GI fuel gas systems.”
“As worldwide markets look to reduce air pollutants and with the introduction of emission control areas (ECAs), we expect to see demand increase for high pressure valves that are marine approved.”
The UK-based company, which is part of motion and control technology specialist Parker Hannifin, has previously supplied its high pressure valves for fuel gas systems for a variety of projects in countries such as South Korea, China and Norway.
