Tested and certified ball valves for the offshore industry

To maintain this quality, the company continuously invests in modernisation and innovation. New materials, designs and procedures are developed and extensively tested. Top priority is always ensuring safety and reliability over the entire service life.
Customised products for any offshore project
Böhmer delivers custom-made products to its customers in the shortest possible time, offering intensive consultation worldwide. Together with customers, the company’s experts define an application profile, which is the basis for choosing the materials, components and the right type of seal (purely metal seated, PMSS or soft seated).
Design features such as Double Block and Bleed, Single and Double Piston, fire safe design, sealant injection or additional bypass lines are just a few of the ways to customise the ball valve perfectly to the required conditions.
The company’s established modular system enables short and flexible production times. It contains the components for the ball valves in all conceivable nominal widths, pressures and temperatures. The universally applicable components are kept available in the company’s warehouses. The computer-aided warehouse management ensures that there are never bottlenecks.
Proven operational safety and low maintenance valves for offshore platforms
Böhmer is always aware of its responsibility and acts accordingly. Due to extreme operational safety, the company’s products are designed to protect life and the environment. In addition, they enable considerable cost savings by reducing maintenance and repair costs.
Customers also benefit from the fact that the ball valves simplify certain processes, which otherwise would require much more complex solutions. More and more customers are realising that higher investment in quality products pay off by significantly lower operating and maintenance costs.

In its production facilities, Böhmer has some of the most modern machinery in the industry. Nevertheless, its experienced and motivated employees are the key to the high quality of its products.
