In the marine environment, both commercial and naval, equipment must be of the highest quality and reliability to deliver long service life under extreme conditions, notably the corrosive seawater environment. When vessels are at sea, repair may be impossible and failure can be catastrophic, so the quality of the design, engineering, qualification, manufacture and ongoing support and maintenance of onboard valve systems are critical.

A typical surface ship contains around 4,000 valves, so the quality of the valve components and materials are of vital importance to safe and efficient operations. In the naval marine environment, specifications are even more demanding, as valves need to be able to withstand the extreme shocks that might be experienced in a combat situation, and still maintain their integrity.
