How to Regulate Your Shipboard’s Fuel Lines with High-Quality Marine Valves and Fittings

Blog | November 5th, 2021

Fuel lines are threading their way past equipment blocks in the engine room. Hydraulic tubes are zipping along a wall to a workshop, where the pressurised gas powers groups of tools. A branching line heads below decks, perhaps making a beeline towards the generator starter. Then there are cold water and superheated steam, boilers, and power plants. Thanks to an authorised Australian distributor, Meson valves are safely regulating every pipe and hose. They contain aggressive chemicals and heat, endure when pressures climb high and still have the power to spare. That reserve strength fights external threats, including saltwater oxidization, casual impacts, and more.

Harsh environments push marine vessels to their limits. Ordinarily, ship valves endure when seafaring conditions turn rough. Still, even out on a lake, freshwater spray can corrode an essential valve. If that pipe stopper locks, the propulsion system could fail. Meson Marine Valves are tougher than generic marine valves and fittings. With that being said, let’s see why an authorised Australian distributor prefers the Meson brand.

Meet the Meson Difference: Valve Integrity

Available in practically every ANSI, DIN, and JIS pressure class, these rugged valves resist briny water. Lake humidity and saltwater spray are hard elements to stop, but Meson valves and fitting are designed to meet such threats head-on. These are made from marine-grade bronze, forged steel and stainless steel. There’s even a range of angle-profiled nodular cast iron fittings. These are also equipped with this fatigue resistant alloy, causing stress-cracking events to be inhibited. They ensure easy ship bound fluid load. Most people are left wondering about the jobs these process-critical flow regulators do upon installation.

A Comprehensive Fluid Regulating Catalogue

Fire hose valves are mounted at regular intervals within a large tanker. They are flanged or threaded, fitted with a universal adapter, and always ready for use. Right there, after describing that emergency usage scenario, is where we define the character of this valve range. Yes, the fittings must operate reliably. If a hand falls on a gate valve or a storm flap, the handwheel has to turn instantly, not after putting back-breaking effort into the task. It is the same with fuel-constraining diaphragm valves, safety shut-offs, and pressure reducing units, valves that control hot steam. Manufactured from cast iron, bronze, and forged steel, every valve family member performs responsively and reliably.

High design tolerances and stringent material selection standards dictate the Meson valve and fittings production methods. Beyond these intrinsic engineering values, there are the straight and angled form factors that ensure straightforward installation. In addition, the calibrated and sealed assemblies ensure dangerous pressures are properly handled.
