SIL3 For South African Valve Manufacturer

24 November 2015 | Posted in SACEEC Member News.

Industrial valve manufacturer Gunric Valves has achieved the highest level of safety, the SIL3 (Safety Integrity Level), for their Metal Seated Butterfly Valves. The SIL3 - for all electrical operated components that operate within a system in a plant, such as a refinery,  - is assessed for safety and reliability as well as the impact on the system if it fails.

This Certification enables Gunric Valves to offer the Oil, Gas and Water industries a guarantee that when they need to close a particular section that the Gunric Metal Seated Butterfly Valve will close, and will close safely.

The Technology Localisation Implementation Unit (TLIU) assisted Gunric Valves in obtaining the SIL Certification IEC 601.  The certification process took four months at a cost of half a million rand. 

TLIU is an initiative of the Department of Science and Technology (DST) (hosted by the CSIR), mandated to assist State Owned Companies in realising their localisation programme by improving the competitiveness of strategic suppliers.

By obtaining the SIL3, Gunric Valves can now supply locally manufactured products to the industry, and by-pass the traditional use of nontariff barriers that allowed imported products with similar certifications to keep local products out of the market.

Gunric Valves is a leading manufacturer and supplier of cast and fabricated industrial, high performance butterfly valves in South Africa, and exports to Australasia, as well as into Africa.

Gunric Valves provides customised butterfly and check valves for unique industrial applications. The range is built for extreme pressure and temperature applications and is ideally suited for the water, oil, process, mining, power generation, petrochemical, gas, sugar and steel industries.
