L&T Valves has been delivering end-to-end solutions to various world-scale oil & gas and power projects across the world – To put things in perspective, the company recently supplied over 150,000 valves in sizes ranging from ½-72" to a major refinery project. Here is an overview of the company.

L&T Valves has three modern manufacturing plants located at Chennai, Coimbatore and Kancheepuram, in Tamil Nadu. The modern manufacturing facilities leverage the best of technology and skill—an L&T Valves hallmark. Chief Executive & Director, L&T Valves, NV Venkatasubramanian averred, “It is a matter of great pride to us that some of the largest high-end valves manufactured in India bear the L&T Valves brand—72" Class 150 Cast Steel Gate Valve (which weighs over 25 tons), 30" cl 1500 gate valve, 20" Class 2500 Trunnion-mounted Ball Valve and 48" Class 150 Tripleoffset Butterfly Valve.”

At L&T Valves, product design is carried out in a 3D environment using state-of-the-art design and analysis software. Finite Element Analysis (FEA) and Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) are used to improve product performance Thanks to its strong R&D, the company has developed a series of product innovations in-house.

“Designs for all the products that we manufacture now—be it cryogenic valves, trunnionmounted ball valves, triple-offset butterfly valves, double block & bleed plug valves or customised solutions for nuclear and defence— have all been developed in-house, and we have the competency and capability to build on these strengths for the future” Venkatasubramanian added.

Leader in Oil & Gas

Manufacturing valves for critical applications in the oil & gas industry is definitely a challenging job. One of the Indian companies that is not only meeting the challenge but also excelling at it across the globe is L&T Valves.

“Engineered flow-control solutions are our forte, and we focus on niche markets governed by stringent product specifications and stiff entry barriers. In these markets, manufacturers gain a place on tightly-controlled vendor lists only after successful audits of products, quality systems and facilities.”
