Shipham Valves

Shipham High Performance Aluminium Bronze Butterfly Valves Successfully Pass Fire Tests

These successful fire tests qualify the complete Shipham range of aluminium bronze high performance butterfly valves from 3” (DN80) up to 42” (DN1050) and in both Class 150 and 300 pressure ratings (PN10, PN16, PN25 & PN40).

The Shipham firesafe range of high performance butterfly valves are designed in accordance with API 609 Category B, providing bi-directional operation, blow-out proof stem protection, ISO top works pad for gearbox or actuator mounting, internal body stops to prevent disc over-travel, accessible stem packing arrangement for easy maintenance, top and bottom bearings for stem support and a double offset stem/ disc design which reduces wear on the seat and thereby extending the in-service valve life. The range is available in wafer, wafer lugged and double flanged body designs
