Sanitary environments

Our valves are widely used in the food and beverage industry as well as the cosmetics, biotech and pharmaceutical sectors. Fully customisable, radial diaphragm, tank, pinch, clean steam, sampling, check, multi-port and two-way valves provide clean and consistent process control across a range of sanitary applications. We offer clean-in-place technology that enables valve body cavities to be cleaned rapidly with no process interruption.

To perform efficiently and reliably in the marine industry, valve technology must be robust and hard-wearing. IMI PBM multi-port, diverter port, cryogenic and tank valves are tested under the most gruelling conditions and manufactured in a range of materials to withstand the harshest corrosion environments on earth. We also provide fire-safe technology for additional reliable protection.

Diaphragm valves provide precise regulation of flow, enhancing precision and accuracy in fine and specialty chemical processing.

Fine chemicals and paint

Our multi-port, tank, two-way, spray ball and self-cleaning valves are widely used in the paints, resins and adhesives manufacturing industries for ideal process flow isolation and the control of fine chemicals. The valve technology helps eliminate product contamination, facilitates clean sampling, prevents clogging and reduces application downtime.
