VANCOUVER – CG Industrial Specialties (CGIS) and Delta Industrial Valves, have received confirmation that their series of severe service knife gate valves have achieved IEC 61508 SIL 3 ratings. The valves are built for use in ASME Class 150, 300 and 600 (PN20, 50, 100) are suitable for use in SIL 3 environments as a single valve and SIL 4 when used in a double valve configuration.
This unique recognition of the reliability and quality of the design allows CGIS and Delta’s clients to use these valves in hazardous areas with a risk reduction of between 1,000 and 10,000.
CGIS believes Delta is the first knife gate manufacturer to achieve such a distinction and confirms its status as an innovator within this valve type, extending its history of firsts with the 1996 introduction of a true Class 300 design and 2000’s introduction of a Class 600 design.
