MIR VALVE GLOBAL SALES REP NETWORK

We operate in 32 countries worldwide and maintain a very good repoire and momentum with our global sales rep network.

In most markets, without their sales and marketing efforts, we would not have grown to where we are today.

Managing a global sales network is exciting, keeps us super busy but requires a dedicated team to drive these markets, customers require real time service and communications regardless of the distance from Malaysia.

Here, our sales rep network plays an invaluable role, in keeping MIR VALVE highly visible in front of our customers.

During this Covid-19 period, we wish to thank them all for their work during this difficult period, working non-stop and staying safe and healthy.

 

Thank you.
Stasi Prandalos, CEO

DID YOU KNOW?

It is important to prevent sparks from occurring within valves.  Sparks can occur when there is sufficient voltage difference built up in the working clearances between parts in the valve.  In theory, two objects of different materials can produce static electricity when they rub against each other; the friction between the ball and the non-metal components can produce a static charge when the valve is operated. 

 

Therefore, to avoid sparking and accidentally igniting the carried fluid, an anti-static device is installed to better ensure that the trim and body remain in constant electrical contact.  This ensures any voltage build up is discharged maintaining equal voltage potential between the trim and body.  This is also particularly useful when valves are installed in cross country transmission pipelines, where impressed current corrosion control measures are typically used.

 

Due to the inevitable metal-metal contact between the valve’s body and the pipeline, the impressed current will also flow through the valve’s body.  In this case it is important that there isn’t any voltage difference between the valve’s body and the trim.  The anti-static device which maintains constant electrical continuity will ensure that such a thing does not happen.


This is a standard feature of all our valves.
