As early as the end of the seventies, VALCO GROUP (with Guichon Valves) started to extend its know-how in the field of special valves to the fabrication of large size valves, mostly gate and slide valves, which are widely used in the petrochemical industry.


Industrial valves for Petrochemicals

In the past 20 years, this know-how combined with the experience of difficult working conditions, especially high temperatures and very abrasive fluids such as catalysts, have conducted our company to design and manufacture special industrial valves for petrochemicals. For example transfer and decoking line valves for ethylene steam crackers, with sizes up to 42″. We have also established a partnership with the French Petroleum Institute (IFP) to produce special valves for FCC and CCR units.
