Pipeline valve manufacturer

Oliver Twinsafe Valves, the third member of the Oliver family of companies, is a leading pipeline valve manufacturer supplying to blue-chip end users and contractors.

Double block and bleed pipeline valves

The company was conceived solely on the idea of manufacturing a valve that could directly replace a single isolation valve with one that offered double block and bleed (DBB) facilities to the same ANSI B16.10 and API 6D length, thereby increasing safety levels whilst reducing weight, space and cost.

Oliver Twinsafe offers 1in to 12in DBB pipeline valves in an all forged body construction, thus increasing safety levels whilst also reducing weight, space and cost. Oliver Twinsafe also offers level gauge valves, ball valves, globe valves and check valves in its portfolio.

Flow control for the petrochemical, oil, gas and power industries

The Oliver family of companies has been providing flow control solutions to the offshore and onshore petrochemical, oil, gas and power industries since 1979 and enjoys success in over 50 countries worldwide.

With its three companies covering subsea, instrumentation and pipeline valves, the Oliver family delivers reliability under pressure from extraction, through refinement, to distribution and storage.
