Saval Quality

In our section of products you can access the most detailed technical sheet of each of our valves.

European Product.

All SAVAL valves are subjected to rigorous tightness tests and mechanical resistance of the housing and the seat.

Materials are derived only from approved foundries, using the best materials depending on the application.

SAVAL valves are tougher and more durable due to body and bonnet of valves are reinforced.

Disc (single piece) with a stop nut to achieve an optimal closure.

Union (metal-metal) of the seat is not damaged when the plug closes on the ring (of the seat).

Greater pressure without loss due to the valve’s stem characteristics.

Possibility of mechanical aperture indicators.
