When a product weakness becomes so commonplace that failure is expected, it’s time to reassess that product’s role in your facility. This is especially true when repeated problems impact your bottom line. Don’t settle for less than the best.
At Ferguson Industrial, we hold our products to a higher standard. We leverage our national reach, custom design capabilities, and team of technical experts. As a result, we supply products that empower the success of industrial facilities at the local level.
That is why when an energy company grew tired of replacing their severe service control valves twice yearly, they turned to us to find an alternative. We discovered flaws in the valve design and jumped into action to find a better solution.
To address the expensive, reoccurring issue, our team worked with valve manufacturer UnionTech. Together we made significant design changes to the valve internals. Then we introduced and developed a metal seated ball valve program. This solution eliminated the damaging steam leak that was previously occurring. As a result of our proactive solutions, the lifespan of the valve increased from six months to more than two years. Our experts also designed the valve to make it compatible with existing brackets, couplings, and actuators. Due to this extra effort, our customer did not need to purchase new actuators in order to install the upgraded valve. To top it off, we provided the enhanced premium valve at the same price point as the original valve.
For projects of all sizes, our experienced technicians, cutting-edge automation facilities, extensive inventory and quality assurance program allow us to quickly meet requirements and provide exceptional service.
Our quality program is the greatest value we provide our customers as a trusted supplier. We are dedicated to the safe operation of the industries we serve, knowing that the products we supply are critical to the safe operation of their facilities.
