The valve is used to change the passage section and the flow direction of the medium. It has the functions of diversion, cutoff, regulation, throttling, check, split or overflow relief. Valve castings are control components in pipeline fluid delivery systems. They come in a wide variety of sizes and sizes.
Valve castings are widely used in chemical, petrochemical, petroleum, paper, mining, electric power, liquefied petroleum gas, food, pharmaceutical, water supply, and drainage, municipal, mechanical equipment, electronics industry, urban construction, and other fields.
Our foundry is a reliable valve parts manufacturer and supplier for valve clients all over the world. We can make all kinds of casting valve components for a check valve, butterfly valve, ball valve, gate valve, control valve, globe valve, plug valve, etc.
The main types of valve castings
Gate Valve Casting
We can offer the scale of Gate Valve Castings from our foundry. Steel gate valve castings can be used for steam, water, air, oil, gas, and non-acid fluids. These valve castings are specially designed to endure high temperatures and load. As per the client’s requirements, we can customize different gate valve castings.
Globe Valve Casting
Globe Valve Casting is widely used in the Pharmaceutical, Chemical, and petrochemicals industries. This industry has a high demand for Globe Valve Casting. As one of the best valve casting manufacturers, our product has Long-lasting and stable properties. It is welcome by our customers because of its comfort of fitting, supreme tensile energy, and accurate engineering.
Ball Valves Casting
Ball Valves Casting is the most exported one in our foundry. It is accepted by our customers at reasonable prices, trusted quality. These castings are broadly used in railway industries for air dryer systems with their hardy frame, greater services, and conventional dimensions

Valve Investment Casting Process
As per the material specification and dimensions of valve casting parts, we can make them in different casting processes:
Sand Casting: Also a casting process for valve casting parts. Sand casting is suitable for both steel and iron valve castings. Compare with lost foam and lost wax castings, it is more suitable to make larger valve components. Normally, we will need to leave more machining allowance for further machining operation. The max weight we can cast is around 2 tons per piece.
Lost Wax Casting: Can make cast steel valve components, like carbon steel, stainless steel, and other cast steel alloys. Lost wax casting is a precision casting method for valve components. So we can achieve good dimensions and tolerances, smoother surface. Stainless steel valve casting parts are widely used in the silica sol casting process, which is another lost wax method. We can use this casting process for butterfly valves, ball valves, etc.
Lost Foam Casting: This casting method is more suitable for making precision cast iron valve parts. It can also get a good surface finish and size. Such as net shape or near-net shape valve castings will need no machining or just little machining allowance.
Most importantly, valve casting provides an easier and less time-consuming way to make replacement parts when a system’s current valves break down and deteriorate. We believe that Your drawing + our technology = Satisfactory product
