Clarke Valve™, a portfolio company of Saudi Aramco Energy Ventures, Chevron Technology Ventures, and OGCI Climate Investments announced that it has secured a CE Marking, following the successful completion of the certification guidelines outlined in PED Module H 2014/68/EU.
Clarke Valve’s rigorous adherence to established engineering and manufacturing standards including ISO 9001:2015, ASME B16.34, and many others helped to ensure that the design, materials, and processes behind the Shutter Valve™ readily satisfied the most stringent EU regulatory requirements for reliability and safety.
TÜV SÜD Industrie Service GmbH is the Notified Body that conducted the certification and on-site audit of Clarke Valve’s systems for engineering, supply chain, and quality assurance. Genuine Clarke Valve manufactured Shutter Valves will be marked with the EU-approved designation CE 0036.
The Shutter Valve has so far secured nine patents worldwide, with several more pending. Solving many long-standing pain points with industrial valve customers across the world, its unique geometry and quarter-turn flow control mechanism can deliver precise throttling, tight shutoff, and high cycle life, while requiring significantly less operating torque. The result is a valve and actuation package that weighs much less, costs less, and requires less energy to operate.
