Success of Donkin’s PUR coated valves continues to grow in gas sector.
Building on the success of AVK UK PUR coated Series 555 gate valves which are fast becoming the default choice for line valves in the gas distribution sector, AVK have now launched a version of the very successful Series 158 construction valves with PUR coating too!
Approved for use.
Since the launch of PUR coated valves in March 2016, the demand for this coating from AVK’s Donkin range continues to increase and all Gas Distribution Networks and Gas Transporters approve its use. Both the flanged and PE tailed version (part of the Donkin Asset Protection System*) of the Series 555 Valve is in high demand as customers realise the installed cost value. The Gas Distribution Networks have now also approved the PUR Coating for use on Series 158 Under Pressure Drilling Valves.
The PUR coating forms the basis of the Donkin Asset Protection system. For the Series 158 valves this comprises elements giving the following benefits:-
A unique, factory applied, high performance Polyurethane coating, specially developed by AVK to withstand the rigors and challenges of underground installation.
Stainless Steel spindle.
The AVK Valve Installation Tracker to log, locate and audit the valve installation.
Approved to recognised standards.
The Donkin Polyurethane is fully type tested to European standard EN 10290 and complies with all the relevant parts of UK gas standard T/SP/CW/6-2. Plus, additional site specific tests to validate and approve the robustness of the coating.
The system in its entirety has been designed to ensure that valve installations are quicker, of a consistently high quality, and are fully traceable and auditable. The system also improves the asset life and integrity of the valve whilst minimising the need for additional protection systems.
