03 May 2019

ARMATURY Group has expanded its product portfolio with a new line of cryogenic ball valves. The development of these special valves, which can be exposed to temperatures up to -196°C, took less than three years. As part of the development task, the company introduced a new production and testing technology, successfully tested the new prototypes on the new cryogenic test equipment.

Research and development play a significant role in ARMATURY Group. The R&D team is continuously monitoring trends in industrial markets. Many liquefaction terminals are currently under construction in the world to liquefy natural gas to be transported by shipping to countries that are dependent on mineral resources. Liquefaction takes place at a temperature of about -162°C, which is a very demanding process.

ARMATURY Group has thus become a certified manufacturer of cryogenic ball valves up to -196°C, offered under the designations K91.C and K92.C. The company has been operating on the market since 2000 and is a leading manufacturer of industrial valves in the Czech Republic, supplying its products to more than 70 countries around the world, mainly to the oil and gas industry, energy, petrochemicals, and metallurgy.
