By focusing on continuous innovation, quality, design and a close relationship with its customers, 4G GHIDINI® is now a leading company in the production of stainless steel ball valves and fittings. On-going investments in research and development are the driving force of the design of new items, in order to meet the increasingly more demanding needs of the global market. This has allowed the company to be awarded different certifications for their products and processes.
The highest quality is ensured by the careful selection of certified manufacturers of raw materials exclusively sourced in Europe and by processing them through mechanical operations carried out entirely in its production site located in Lumezzane (Brescia). Its high standard of service relies on flexibility, punctuality and accuracy which, thanks to its prompt stock availability, ensures timely deliveries, an added value of its product offering.
Ball valves comply with “PED” 2014/68/UE, on the harmonisation of the laws of the Member States relating to making available on the market of pressure equipment, and they can be supplied on request in compliance with directive “ATEX” 2014/34/UE for approximation of the legislation enforced in the Member States covering safety systems and equipment to be used in potentially explosive environments zone 1-21 II 2 G-D T4.
Valves comply with “MOCA” 1935/2004/EC regulation for materials and articles intended to come into contact with food, and with “GMP” 2023/2006/EC regulation for good manufacturing practice for materials and articles intended to come into contact with food.
Seals comply with 10/2011/UE regulation for plastic materials and articles intended to come into contact with food and conform with FDA 21 CFR 177.1550 “Perfluorocarbon resins”, FDA 21 CFR 175.300 “Resinous and polymeric coatings” and USP CLASS VI.
Products comply with the technical regulation EAC TR CU 010/2011 and EAC TR CU 032/2013 (former Gost certifications).
4G GHIDINI integrally sealed ball valves have been designed to minimise the build-up of fluid inside the valve body, thus preventing any contamination.
They can be sterilised with vapour, autoclave or with CIP washing systems.
The valves can be easily taken apart, thus ensuring better cleaning and quick maintenance operations. 4G GHIDINI actuators can be fitted directly, ensuring a compact and clean system.
The diverse processes of industrial chemical plants have strict requirements for the manufacturers of valves and components. Critical operating conditions such as temperatures and pressures require specific solutions.
Aisi 316L stainless steel valves can be used with corrosive fluids and are complemented by the selection of the most suitable seal. The versatile options offered by the smart combination of the valves selected and the automation technology are the best pre-requirement for the different areas of processing, water treatment and energy production industrial applications.
