Quick Closing Valves

LK Valves has worked intensively to improve and re-design their range of Quick Closing valves. The new range of LK Quick Closing Valves combines state of the art features such as integrated automatic fire release, universal release cylinder for manual, hydraulic or pneumatic activation and ultra compact design with an excellent performance / cost ratio.

The valves are Type Approved by DNV, Lloyds, Bureau Veritas, ABS and Germinischer Lloyds.

The new quick closing valves can be activated either manually by wire or by LK Valves existing well proven complete system of hydraulic or pneumatic release stations.

Mud Boxes

LK Valves has improved and refined the well proven design of our mud boxes to match future market requirements.

Extra strength in the base has been achieved by incorporating a slightly curved design and casting cavities are avoided by ensuring the base and wall thickness are the same. This also reduces the overall weight.

Typical applications for mud boxes are in the cooling water and bilge water systems onboard vessels. They can also be used in other systems at sea as well as in land based industrial applications.

The new range includes both straight and angle type
