Danfoss India has unveiled a new range of shut-off valves and stop needle valves (SNV gauge valves). The range of valves is manufactured in the Danfoss India factory located at Oragadam and will cater to needs of different industrial refrigeration plants.

These new shut-off valves are designed in accordance to European standards for industrial refrigeration application requirements in India. New product design features include a packaging gland, a gasket, and a Teflon cone for plant safety, lesser maintenance, and longer life span of valves. The new packaging gland is designed to ensure a tight and secure seal throughout the operating conditions within specifications, whereas the Teflon cone ensures perfect rigidity in the range.

“SNV gauge valves perform under high pressure and are suitable for heavy-duty industrial applications,” the company said, adding that the valves are compact and lightweight for ease of handling and installation.

In a statement, the company said, “Along with growing demand for industrial refrigeration products, there is a need to enhance the automation and safety of plants through reliable and efficient products. Designed to work in harsh and humid environments, the Danfoss valves provide reliable operation in various industrial refrigeration plants.”

“This is just the initial offering of a series of valves and controls engineered and manufactured from our new Chennai plant. In the coming years, customers can expect more innovative solutions from our India operations,” said Rajesh Premchandran, vice president, Refrigeration and A/C Division, Danfoss Industries Pvt Ltd, India.
