Latest product launches


Posted: Friday 6th February 2015

Albion Valves, supplier of specialist products for the water industry, is one of the first companies in the UK to introduce a range of stainless steel fittings, which conform to current ISO 4144 Standard designed to specify the pressure, temperature ratings and dimensions of this product group.

Stainless steel does not readily corrode, rust or stain with water, making it the primary choice of material used in water systems, from safe drinking water supply to complex industrial water supply systems such as in hospitals, schools and hotels. However, although it is commonplace for engineers to assess system components for quality including valves, it is less likely that the fittings are checked or conform to the industry standard.

Albion supports the industry standard and the focus it brings to quality in this sector, which has suffered in recent years as a result of not having clearly defined quality controls. Historically, there has been a huge diversity on quality and pricing for this product sector, often resulting in products being specified that were either unfit for purpose, over-spec'd, non compliant or over priced for particular applications.

Albion's new range features a wide variety of different fittings available in sizes from 1/8" - 4" all of which meet the new Standard's criteria, offering customers an extensive choice, as well as the optimum balance of quality, performance and price.

David Keys, Albion Managing Director commented:

"It is imperative for our business that we stock a high performance range of products that are safe, reliable and excellent quality. We aim to provide our customers with complete confidence and peace of mind, by supplying products that both increase productivity and minimize waste and errors.

As such we welcome the ISO Standard and will be encouraging our distributors to benefit from the enhanced quality controls in this sector."
