Most valves are built to last a long time, and can withstand considerable fluctuations in temperature. However, despite the durability of well-built valves, extreme cold can affect their functionality in a serious way.
Keep Your Valves Protected
If the valves in your piping system are exposed to extreme cold for a prolonged period of time, you can run into some pretty serious problems. As a result, your bottom line will be in the throws of very expensive downtime.
For example, imagine that one of the valves that sits at an important transition spot in an oil pipeline becomes frozen and fails to redirect the oil in the direction it is supposed to. The results could be catastrophic. Or perhaps even more importantly, what happens if a shot-off valve fails to close during an emergency?
In the end, these possibilities are chances you don’t have to take. You can protect your pipe, butterfly, ball valves and more from exposure to cold weather and ensure that they always function properly.
