Description
The production of fabrics require an enourmous amount of steam.

Typically, this industy uses bellow sealed valves where operators faces the problem that this valve type starts to leak after a short period of time.

As the leakage of steam generates unnecessary costs during daily operation and requires additional efforts of maintanance including a shut down of the steam line, this Austrian operator was eager to find better a solution.

Hence, the decision was made to replace the existing bellow sealed valves with Ballostar KHE.

The Ballostar KHE proved to be a reliable source for this application - the KLINGER ball valve is still tight and the operator enjoyed a trouble free operation without any problems for 5 years.
