SUPPLY CHAIN DELIVERIES

It takes many years to build-up a highly reliable group of suppliers that deliver components to our drawings and on-time.

 

To achieve this level of quality, it comes with a cost: it is a continuous work in progress, driving our suppliers to ensure they stay focused, committed to quality and on-time deliveries.

 

MIR VALVE manufactures approx. 2,600 ball and gate valves annually and this equates to approx. 400,000 components a year flowing into our plant.

 

Our integrated supply chain is critical to our performance and success.

DID YOU KNOW?

Where process conditions allow, O-Rings perform better as seals when compared to Lip Seals. 

 

Due to their elastomeric nature, O-rings are far better able to conform themselves to irregularities of sealing surfaces they are contact with thus providing a more reliable pressure seal. 

 

O-rings work in both directions and are more ‘forgiving’ on presence of rust or debris compared to lip seals.  They are also typically lower in cost (up to a point). 

 

The main driver for selecting lip seals over o-rings tends to be the lip seal suitability to wider temperature ranges and in severe service applications.
