Clyde Materials Handling

A speciality chemical company approached Clyde Materials Handling when it required a bespoke valve to be used in the production of monomer – a compound used in water treatment. The valve would be used on the discharge of a reactor, at the heart of the production process; therefore reliability was the key for the client. The company decided that Clyde’s dome valves would be ideal for this application as it proved both efficient and reliable during trials. As the product passing through the valve is involved in the water treatment process special materials had to be used in its manufacture. Clyde Materials Handling manufactured two 600mm dome valves that, because of the nature of the application, required two cylinders to effectively close the valve. The valves were manufactured from stainless steel with the internal surfaces coated in white high epoxy resin to ensure that there was no decolouration of the monomer product. The valves were installed in August 2003 and have performed faultlessly to date.
