Dec 1, 2015

The CII Valves National Conference 2014 was recently held in Mumbai, with the theme—Going Global. I S Malhotra, Chairman - Valves & Actuators Division, CII & Pentair Valves and Controls opined that making India a global supply centre of valves is a part of the “Make in India” programme. “We need to upgrade our infrastructure so that India can produce high-end engineered valves. China is no threat since these valves are for the high end. The Indian valve industry was worth $2 billion, while the global market was worth $60 billion, which only showed the growth potential,” he added. According to Anil Gupta, Executive Director (QA&I), National Thermal Power Corporation (NTPC), the company would be generating `1.28 lakh megawatt power and would thus, need different valves. “Valves should have zero defects, which would delight customers and help this sector in going global. As India is building super critical power plants, the valves should withstand high temperature and pressure, and exhibit high quality and total reliability.”
