CIRCOR Energy, a CIRCOR International, Inc. (NYSE: CIR) company, announced that Pibiviesse, a CIRCOR business located in Milan, Italy, completed the production of two Control Ball Valves that are believed to be the largest ever in the world. The 64" X 48" hydraulic actuated Control Cage Ball Valves have a flow capacity of 125,500 Cv. The valves will play an integral role in controlling the flow of water in a 450 KM (280 mile) pipeline from the Ras Azawr Desalination plant to Riyadh in Saudi Arabia.

“These record-breaking valves are a testament to Pibiviesse's ability to innovate and solve difficult control valve applications wherever increasing capacity and pressures are required,” said Mahesh Joshi, President, CIRCOR Energy Products Group. “We are proud of the team in Italy and thank them for their dedication to growing the business by expanding our capabilities.”

The valves were selected due to their ability to control a broad range of flow requirements with stable control against turbulence and cavitations risk. In addition to these two valves, a variety of other Ball Control Valves sizes from 6" to 40" also were delivered to manage water flow in the Riyadh distribution system.
