Meeting your safety-critical applications

Valves are key components of desalination infrastructure

The global demand for water supplies and water management resources is increasing, whether it’s as a result of changes and growth in population, growing expectations or demand created by industry.

Sourcing water suitable for human consumption is becoming more important. With the removal of contaminants and salts during some desalination water treatment processes, seawater becomes suitable for drinking water.

Valves are key components of desalination plant infrastructure and operating systems including SWRO, which manage large water volumes at high pressure. Therefore, a trusted and reliable supply chain that delivers high-quality, proven operational performance and through-life solutions in safety-critical applications and industrial environments are paramount.
