Bestobell Marine valves fully approved by four main international Class Societies


Bestobell Marine, a world leading supplier of cryogenic globe and check valves for ships, has obtained full type approval from the main four international Class Societies for its range of Globe and Check cryogenic valves.

DNV-GL. Lloyds Register, Bureau Veritas and American Bureau of Shipping have all approved Bestobell’s valves for use in cryogenic marine applications, which includes valves used in cargo systems on LNG carriers and bunker vessels, LNG fuel gas systems, LNG regasification systems and LNG reliquefaction systems.

Duncan Gaskin, Sales Director at Bestobell Marine, part of Parker PEGL, said, “It is very exciting to be one of the first cryogenic valve manufacturers to receive full type approval from all four Class Societies. This will enable us to develop our business even further supplying cryogenic valves for both marine cargo containment and for fuel gas systems, on an international basis.”

Bestobell Marine was required to obtain full type approvals for its range of cryogenic globe and check valves, due to the changing requirements from the IACS Class Societies. Having full type approval means that Bestobell Marine can continue to carry out random tests of 10% of its valves in an order, witnessed by a class surveyor, rather than be subject to excessive testing requirements that would have incurred extra cost that would have had to be passed onto customers.
