According to data, in 2018, the number of valve imports in China was 1039.97 million sets, down 2.1% year-on-year.From January to December 2018, China imported $7328128 thousand worth of valves, an increase of 20% year-on-year.Industry insiders believe that the decline in the number of imported valves, reflects the domestic valve in quality, technology and other aspects of the promotion.
Valve is a control part in the pipeline transportation system, which can be used to control the flow of air, water, steam, corrosive media, mud, oil, liquid metal and radioactive media.In the pharmaceutical industry, the use of valves is large, play a great role.
It is reported that there are about 3000 valve manufacturers in China, which can produce gate valves, throttle valves, ball valves, globe valves, butterfly valves, diaphragm valves, control valves, etc., to meet the requirements and needs of various fields.
With the control valve ranks, at present, the domestic control valve production enterprises mainly concentrated in zhejiang, jiangsu and Shanghai and other places.According to relevant information, in 2017, the geographical distribution of the top 50 control valve manufacturers in China included 6 in zhejiang, 4 in jiangsu and 6 in Shanghai.
At present, the domestic control valve can use pressure up to 2500 pounds, the operating temperature up to 1200℃.The control valves used in industrial systems need to be imported except for some key parts such as high temperature, high pressure and high wear and wear in electric power, petrochemical, metallurgy and nuclear power industries, and other products can be basically produced and manufactured by China's control valve enterprises.
In recent years, China's control valve production enterprises also for a number of nuclear power plant sets with part of the nuclear control valves, China's industrial enterprises need to import the proportion of control valves decreased year by year, at the same time, some domestic enterprises produced control valve products have been exported with part of the supporting projects.
It can be seen that China's valve technology is constantly improving, automation, intelligent products gradually occupy the market.Manufacturers said that many enterprises are striving to give intelligent valve technology, intelligent characteristics of the valve has many advantages.
Such as identifying the valve body, actuator and diaphragm information;Ability to identify product information and survival information;Can improve the reliability of the process through the traceability of information;Ability to create work specific electronic documents (e.g. supporting documents);Able to maintain log and optimize maintenance process;Can also improve the intelligent instrument (installation qualification);Can also carry out paperless office and maintenance.
Although China's valve industry in quality, technical level has been improved, but many products still have some deficiencies, the market is still dominated by international advanced enterprises, and China's valve enterprises occupy a lower share.But analysts also pointed out that this also means that China's valve industry is still a huge market development potential, enterprises need to grasp the opportunity.
The author understands, have an enterprise to make a standard actively, master powerful market attack weapon.For example, yongjia county pump and valve enterprises, the relevant people said that enterprises actively participate in the development of standards, so that yongjia valve to a large extent occupied the right to speak in the industry, and participate in the development of standards in many bidding projects is a "plus".
Therefore, the enterprise's enthusiasm is very high, at the same time, with the quality supervision and other relevant departments standardization work and related brand certification work, yongjia valve enterprises to participate in the development of the number of standards will set a new high.
Also have region issued relevant solutions, and puts forward the implementation of innovation ability, brand standards improving, information technology reform, leading enterprises cultivation, platform investment promotion, green development guide action and so on six big projects, in order to further intensify policy support, strengthen policy reversed transmission mechanism, build the strong atmosphere of vibration and the valve industry.
