If you are looking for a valve that can protect your people, process and stop any leakage of hazardous chemicals into the environment, then you should be looking for a Bellows Seal Valve. it is now accepted that Bellows Seal designs afford the best possible prevention of atmospheric leakage and the protection of plant operators. Our Bellows Seal Valves have proven to be the very best in this category and manufactured to the most stringent manufacturing processes to ensure casting integrity and leak tightness. When you are processing dangerous chemicals and if you want to ensure no leakage to the atmosphere, you will not find a better manufactured valve than those made by Hunt & Mitton.
To have our product design, supply chain and manufacturing processes approved by Euro Chlor at our factory. Along with our ISO certifications we produce world class products of the highest quality and traceability to serve the chlor-alkali industry in Europe, Asia, Africa and the Americas. We have surpassed the highest level of requirements in casting integrity and our product sales are growing to blue ribbon chemical producers. We have achieved all of this whilst offering great service to our customers and partners.
We do not rely on statistical chance for our casting integrity. Our competitors typically radiograph 10% of their castings leaving 90% not checked for shrinkage defects. Hunt & Mitton gives you a 100% guarantee on their casting integrity. 100% of the volume of castings for hazardous chemical applications are radiographed so that we can be certain every casting meets the Euro Chlor specified ASTM E446 Level 2 acceptance criteria. We will also offer RT of critical areas only if required. Another reason why our valves give world class performance.

Our Manual and actuated valves are certified SIL3 capable.
We have been specialising in control valves and hazardous chemical valves for over 70 years. We have a long list of field proven applications in the chlor-alkali sector in which single and multistage control valves are helping to control the processing of dangerous liquids and gases around the world. Our control valve sizing program has been developed over many years and we have calculated thousands of hazardous fluid applications predicting the fluid behaviour of each individual condition. Let us have the basic details and we will do the rest.
