HIDE – The New Generation G-valves Patent No.: 10-1642210
Why you should select HIDE? What if the ship is listing heavily, with valves in the water zone or even under water and the valves fail? For instance by the float being stuck, damaged or simply gone. Then the valves will take in water! In the worst-case scenario, the pumps could be out of order, due to electrical failure or black-out, or the machinist has evacuated. Then, the situation may rapidly become serious for the ship. The valve’s reliability is of the highest importance, for safety at sea!
What if the valve is slightly too narrow or tight for the air-flow stream? Suction blocking occurs. With a blocked valve, suction forces will create tension in the tank – which might cause a breakdown in the tank’s bulkhead structure. The opposite may also occur: High pressure-drop due to overfilling will force the tank to break down outwardly. Therefore, correct sizing could prevent tank break down!
