Entire Proses of Industrial Valve Manufacturing
Industrial valve production is a comprehensive process starting from the valve design to the delivery of the valves produced to the customers. Throughout the process, quality control tests are carried out at all stages and production is carried out according to industry quality standards. The manufacturing process can be considered in six main categories: design, modeling, casting, machining, assembly and quality testing.
Industrial Valve Production Processes
Industrial valve production starts with the design phase. During the design, the competent engineers, according to the customer wishes to design the valve on the computer. The prepared valves are tested for different usage scenarios in the computer environment.
This step involves the preparation of molds for the production of valves prepared and tested in the computer environment. These models, called the casting model, form the basic molds for which the valves will be produced.
The first stage of production is used by using the casting models prepared during the modeling phase. Casting lines are casted in different weights according to the usage area. Depending on the type of the valve produced during the casting process, it can be a single body production or in the form of parts.
After casting, the valves are processed on CNC machines to eliminate any roughness. After the machining process, the processed valve is sent to the next stage and the resulting waste is converted to gray and included in the production process.
Valve parts produced separately can be mounted manually or by machines depending on the time required by the installation. During the assembly process, the finished products are sent to the painting line. During the dyeing process, different processes are performed according to different needs. For example, the valves to be used in drinking water lines use special paints that comply with the drinking water health regulations and standards. In addition, oil or natural gas will be used in the valves of these materials are used in appropriate paints.
Quality Control Test
The final stage of industrial valve production processes is the quality control test. At this stage, all quality tests in the leak test, hydrostatic pressure test and related regulations are applied before the products are delivered to the customer. Test results are reported in detail and these reports are sent to the relevant production units.
Packaging & Delivery
After completing the quality control tests of the produced valves, they are packed for delivery to customers and ready for delivery. The valves are packaged in a special way and sent to the customers after the measures taken against the damage that may occur during transportation.
