YPS Langley Valves manufacturers of Nickel Alloy, Duplex and stainless steel, gate, globe and check valves

For over 45 years, YPS Langley Valves has been a manufacturer of Nickel Alloy, Duplex and stainless steel, gate, globe and check valves. We are also a major International Distributor for Velan, Neway, OMB Bonney Forge plus our own Langley Stainless Steel valves.

All of the materials manufactured by YPS Langley Valves are sourced through approved suppliers who must comply with our Quality procedures based on the British Standard ISO 9001:2015 plus our PED accreditation. For high integrity valves, approximately 90% of our castings are sourced from UK foundries. The remainder, usually Titanium or Zirconium, are sourced from international suppliers. The latest addition to our list of available materials is Nickel Aluminium Bronze.

Our manufacturing portfolio includes gate valves to API 600/ISO 10434, globe valves to BS1873 ‘T’, ‘Y’ and Angle designs. In our extensive Check valve range we provide Swing, Dual Plate, Nozzle, Piston and Ball Check valves to BS1868 or API 600. Also we supply Cryogenic and Bellows sealed valves. Recently we have added full and reduced bore Floating Ball valves to our range. Many of our valves are specified for extremely corrosive or hazardous service condition therefore we offer materials meeting ASTM E446 levels 3,2 and 1, depending on the criticality of the intended application.

The standard production sizes for our gate, globe, check and ball valves range from 15mm up to 600mm. Through Langley we also offer a bespoke service where we can produce customised exotic valves designed to meet clients’ specific requirements. The synergy between our stocking and manufacturing businesses means shorter lead times for our clients and we are able to despatch products worldwide efficiently once satisfied with the quality and performance of our products.

We have already mentioned we are supplying valves for specific, and in some cases severe applications, it is therefore reasonable that End Users will require enhanced testing to confirm the suitability of the product being supplied. Our in house Specialist Testing Centre, with appropriately trained personnel, can offer a wide range of searching tests helping businesses adhere to exacting social and environmental responsibilities. These include Cryogenic Testing to minus 196 Deg C. Elevated Temperature testing to +700 Deg C. Emission Testing, Penetrant Examination and Positive Material Identification.

YPS Langley Valves has established a reputation for Stocking one of the most comprehensive ranges of high quality Stainless Steel and Duplex valves in Europe. Our range consists of Gate, Globe and Check valves from 15 mm up to 500 mm in a wide range of materials, Pressure Classes and a variety of end connections. All of which are from high quality approved manufacturers used by many leading End users.

Our dual strategy as a Manufacturer and Stockist, allows us to play a major role in resolving urgent maintenance plant breakdowns, plus supporting last minute shutdown requirements by our ability to convert a stock valve to meet almost any End User specification worldwide.

Whether a client requires a sophisticated conversion such as cryogenic of Bellows sealed valve to simple part or trim changes, we can facilitate all of these modifications in-house within short timescales and fully tested. Velan, Neway and OMB have audited and approved YPS Langley Valves as an ‘Approved Workshop’ for their valves in recognition of the quality of valves we supply.

End users of our products include Shell, BP, Exxon, Mobil, Ineos, Chevron, Sasol and Conoco-Philips. We are regularly required to manufacture and despatch products to petrochemical plants, oil refineries, power plants (including nuclear) and off-shore operations worldwide including China, Africa, Australia, the Middle East and Europe.
