Shipham Petrochemical Valves provide a corrision-resistant high-quality valve solution

Titanium, Zirconium and Hastelloy for aggressive petrochemical applications.

The petrochemical industry is characterised by the price volatility of the crude oil that is refined…. combined with stringent site safety requirements due to corrosive processes, dangerous fluids, extreme temperatures, and pressure making site safety an absolute priority.

In addition, the desire to contribute to a circular economy is driving the industry to reduce its carbon footprint and to promote recycling. This has led petrochemical companies to place a renewed emphasis on operating excellence and resource efficiency.

Many crucial activities within this industry rely on high-quality petrochemical valve solutions.

Serving bespoke petrochemical systems

Reputable supplier supporting the evolving petrochemical valve requirements

Processing hydrocarbons into petrochemical products requires specialist equipment manufactured from high-quality alloys to avoid corrosion and erosion. Shipham Valves has extensive experience with both Acetic Acid and Purified Terephthalic Acid (PTA) process plants, with valves made of Titanium, Zirconium, and Hastelloy® for these aggressive applications.

Our high-quality valves support petrochemical applications:

  • Gate valves – modulate the flow of media such as oil, gas, steam, water and hydrocarbons
  • Globe valves – regulate pressure, stop and start flow with high accuracy
  • Butterfly valves – open and close flow
  • Check valves – help prevent backflows


Many valves control the flow direction and protect pipelines and equipment from pressure and filter debris.
