New VideoVideo On Patented Valve Design

Check out our new YouTube video, explaining NOSHOK's innovative, newly patented valve design.

Through creative 3D animation, this video highlights the unique body-to-bonnet metal-to-metal seal  on our valves that significantly increases the pressure range of the valve without compromising the flow, and helps to maintain the integrity of the bonnet threads by segregating them from the process media.

  • EXCELLENT CORROSION RESISTANCE

  • EXCELLENT ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION

  • WEEE & ROHS COMPLIANT

UPDATE:

Carbon Steel Valves Now Standard With Corrosion Resistant Zinc Nickel Plating

All NOSHOK carbon steel needle & manifold valves are now standard with Zinc Nickel Plating — an ideal choice for harsh environments where corrosion resistance is a necessity.

Improvements in corrosion protection have become increasingly important for outdoor applications, where traditional platings have limited performance capabilities in demanding environments. In addition to its excellent corrosion resistance (higher than any other sacrificial alloy), Zinc Nickel plating  provides increased deposit hardness which results in extended wear resistance and longer service life, which is ideal for most industrial applications. It is also WEEE and RoHS compliant.

Note: Colors may vary due to normal process variation and will not affect the performance of the valve.

Alex Utrera, International Sales Manager

Q: What is NOSHOK's plan for growing export sales in the future?
A:
Alejandro Utrera, International Sales Manager for NOSHOKReceiving the Excellence in Exporting Award from the Ohio Department of State last year was a true honor. To be acknowledged and recognized among so many companies is very humbling, and it makes us appreciate even more the importance of what we do and the value it provides. Most importantly, it motivates us to continue growing our business and expanding into different markets worldwide.

In 2010, NOSHOK established more than 28 new partnerships outside of the United States, in countries such as Mexico, Qatar, China, Ecuador, Canada, Vietnam, and Colombia. In the next few years, NOSHOK expects to increase its presence in other markets such as Saudi Arabia, Singapore, Malaysia and South Africa. The execution of this international expansion program also includes a detailed and strategic plan that will triple export sales for the company by 2015.

At NOSHOK, we are excited about these plans and remain committed to continue offering high quality products and excellent support to all of our distribution partners and customers worldwide.
