ValvTechnologies Now “N” and “NPT” Authorized and Code Stamped

Tuesday, January 27, 2009

ValvTechnologies has successfully acquired “N” and “NPT” Authorizations and Code Stamps. As of January of this year, ASME lists 110 “N” Code Stamp holders worldwide. Of the 110, only 16 of the authorized stamp holders are North American valve manufacturers –-- now make that 17.

Bill Henwood, VP & Director of the Nuclear Division explains, “Setting up a potential valve sale in the nuclear industry is completely different to dealing with the fossil fuel or processing industries. It’s extraordinarily difficult to get new products into nuclear power plants. The complexity and volume of the industry rules and regulations make it very difficult for plants to implement changes. For example, if you have a safety related or ASME Code globe valve in an application it’s very difficult to substitute this with a ball valve. The documentation and paperwork alone can cost up to $100,000 to implement such a change.”
