LK Valves & Controls Introduce A New Addition To Their Range Of Winel Tank Vent Check Valves

LK Valves & Controls Limited, the Liverpool based stockist & distributor, are proud to announce a new addition to their wide range of marine and general industrial valves, the Winel type ‘CMO’ aluminium OVERFLOW tank vent check valve, suitable for direct discharge ‘over-board’

Winel’s latest development is manufactured from a seawater resistant ALMG4.5 aluminium alloy. Available in sizes DN40 to DN400, this latest valve has a high flow capacity, it is a lightweight, yet extremely rigid slimline design.

The new CMO compliments Winel’s ‘standard’ type CM aluminium tank vent check valve which was launched in Autumn 2016. The standard CM discharges on deck. If discharge on deck is not possible, the new CMO tank vent check valve can be simply mounted in the piping system, allowing discharge directly overboard.

Winel have been producing tank vent check valves for over 50 years and have Type Approvals from all major Classification Societies for the whole range of tank vent check valves. The new CMO has been tested and certified in accordance with the relevant requirements of the European Union Recognised Organisations Mutual Recognition procedure for Type Approval.

Tank vent check valves or vent heads as they are more commonly known, are used on all ships in order to ventilate ballast and void tanks, while also preventing any contamination of the contents of the tank with water during rough seas. It is a requirement that all tanks aboard ships are protected from penetration of seawater in accordance with the International Convention on Load Lines 1966.

Winel tank vent check valves can be used on any type of commercially used ship or yacht, navy vessel and offshore platform.

By using Winel tank vent check valves, you are taking advantage of a solid, maintenance free and fully automatic operating system.

LK Valves & Controls hold stock of both the standard galvanised steel type RM, and Bolero tank vent check valves and the new CM and CMO range of seawater resistant ALMG4.5 aluminium alloy tank vent check valves, available with standard PN10 flange connection and also JIS 5K and ANSI.
