KÜHME offers the proven high-performance valves as double shut-off valve unit ready for installation. The quick-closing valves combine the core competencies of KÜHME in valve technology with those of a system supplier for plant installations tailored to the demand.
The second valve can be designed as combined quick-closing control valve with type examination. This renders unnecessary the installation of a separate control valve. The individually adapted control behaviour leads to an optimised burner operation.
