Pipe Tech Becomes Shutter Valve Distributor

Clarke Valve is pleased to announce that it has added Pipe Tech of Mandeville, LA as an officially authorized Value Added Distributor. Pipe Tech brings over 28 years of experience as a master distributor and manufacturers’ representative for process industries, commercial construction, municipal utilities, power, oil and gas exploration and production, marine shipbuilding, and others.

Frank Smith, President and CEO of Pipe Tech, Inc. says “We are extremely excited to introduce the innovation that Clarke Valve has developed. The Shutter Valve is truly a revolutionary product that can have a significant impact on our customers’ savings through better flow control, lower maintenance costs, decreased power consumption, and bubble-tight shutoff capabilities.”

“Having Pipe Tech as an authorized distributor for our products means that we have a service-oriented representative helping us expand our markets into the gulf coast and beyond. Frank and his team bring an outstanding reputation for service, and the addition of the Shutter Valve to their product offering means that they will genuinely create solutions to customer problems that only the Shutter Valve can solve.” Says Kyle Daniels, CEO and President of Clarke Valve.

The Shutter Valve is an ultra- high performance flow control valve that offers both precise flow control and excellent shutoff capabilities- leak free up to 1,000 PSI. It also requires much less torque to open and close, meaning it saves a significant amount on the size, cost, and power consumption of larger actuators.

Clarke Valve is the innovation leader in the valve industry. By applying aerospace-inspired design concepts to the field of flow control, Clarke has developed the next generation of premium industrial valves to power the world’s best companies, named the Shutter Valve.
