When a product weakness becomes so commonplace that failure is expected, it’s time to reassess that product’s role in your facility—especially 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 to supply products that will empower the success of industrial facilities and plants at the local level.
That’s why, when an energy company grew tired of replacing their severe service control valves twice a year because of flaws in the valve design, they turned to us to find an alternative.
Our team worked with valve manufacturer UnionTech to make significant design changes to the valve internals and improve the life of the valve. We introduced and developed a metal seated ball valve program to eliminate the steam leak and extend the valve’s lifespan from six months to more than two years. Our experts also designed the valve to make it compatible with existing brackets, couplings and actuators, saving the customer the cost of purchasing new actuators to upgrade to a new valve.
On top of all that, we were able to provide this enhanced premium valve within the same price point as the original valve. Our commitment to quality, value and service has saved the energy company $488,000 in valve replacement costs over five years.
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.
