About Specialist Valves

We offer a range of specialist valves through our manufacturing partners, SchuF, who design and manufacture an array of innovative valve solutions. These specialist made-to-order valves are meticulously crafted to meet the unique and often intricate requirements of specific applications and industries. Whether it’s dealing with extreme temperatures, corrosive substances, or intricate processes, our specialist valves are tailored to provide optimal performance and reliability in challenging environments.

Specialist Valve Models

Our extensive selection of industrial valves is engineered to control, isolate, divert, or sample gases, liquids, slurries, or powders. The specialist valves we offer are ideal for difficult or severe service conditions such as those in the chemical, petrochemical, polymer, oil, gas, refining and offshore industries.

Disc Bottom Outlet Valves

Also known as the Disc Drain Valve, these valves are most commonly used for dead-space free draining of tanks, reactors or pipelines containing non-viscous media.

Piston/Ram Bottom Outlet Valves

Piston or Ram Valves are used to quickly drain or inject media into or out of vessels, tanks, or reactors, and are particularly suited to highly viscous materials or where rapid vessel drainage is important.

Sampling Valves

There are a broad range of Sampling Valves to suit your specific application. Sampling Valves allow for hassle-free service when simplifying the extraction of samples from, or the injection into tanks, reactors, or pipelines.

Line Blind Valves

Often referred to as spectacle blinds, figure of eights, or blinding systems, our Line Blind Valves provide a fast, easy-to-use, and safe solution to pipeline isolation. In particular, the Cam-Set with a swinging spectacle plate and Cam-Slide with a sliding spectacle plate are popular choices for a variety of industries.

Lift Plug Valves

The Lift Plug Valve, invented by SchuF, is the first double block and bleed switch and/or isolation valve and is suitable for severe applications at high temperatures or with highly abrasive or erosive materials.

Control Valves

Control Valves or Angle Control Valves are designed to regulate flow, level, temperature or pressure within a vessel, pipeline, or process within a range of different industries.

Automatic Recirculation Valves

Many years of research and development have gone into perfecting the performance and unique design of the Automatic Recirculation Valve. Also knows as the Minimum Flow Valve, the function of this valve is to automatically protect centrifugal pumps during low load operation so that the pump minimum flow rate is reached and maintained.

Diverter Valves

Diverter Valves, often referred to as 3-way Valves, 4-way Valves, Multi-way Valves, or Switching Valves, are advanced dead and slow space free valves for switching critical processes and difficult media.

Spray Rinse & Injection Valves

Spray Rinse Valves are offered in two designs depending on your requirements. The purpose of a Spray Rinse Valve is to effectively rinse large tanks, vessels, or reactors without the need to open them.

Changeover Valves

Changeover valves are switchover valves, switching flow from one pipeline to another. Changeover valves are well suited to applications where mandatory pressure relief devices (rupture discs and relief valves) are installed as dual devices to ensure at least one of the two pressure relief devices is always in service.

In-Tank Emergency Shut-off Valves (TESO)

The primary application of an In-Tank Emergency Shut-off Valve (TESO) is to guarantee the safety of storage tanks containing dangerous fluids and gases such as LNG, Chlorine, VCM, VC, Propane, Propylene, or Ammonia.


In conclusion, our range of specialist valves from SchuF are designed and manufactured to meet the challenges of many difficult or severe service applications. From the intricacies of chemical processing to the rigorous demands of petrochemicals, we can provide an innovative valve solution tailored to your critical process requirements.
