If you're building a ship or involved in some other kind of maritime construction, choosing your fluid valves and fittings is an extremely important part of the process. If shipbuilding valves and fittings are not chosen and installed properly, it could have disastrous consequences once the ship is launched.
That’s why you want to be sure to choose Mako Products as your fluid valves and fittings experts. We are one of the most trusted sources of valves and fittings in North America, including valves for the maritime industry. In fact, we are particularly well-known for our instrumentation and control products for shipbuilding construction and ship repair due to the wide range valves, tubing and fittings we can offer.
Our Superlok tube fittings and valves are made of 316 stainless steel, which means they will not corrode in the saltwater environments most ships frequently encounter. Our products are held to the highest standards in the industry.
Of equal importance is our proprietary Superlok i-Fitting feature that guarantees a tight seal for your pipes while reducing over-tightening that can put stress on your tubing system. You won't find this anywhere else. When you install a Superlok tube fitting with the built-in gap gauge on your ship, the red ring pops off as soon as you have reached optimal tightening. You can relax knowing your ship will go out to sea with tight seals that will not allow leaks, and a system that is not stressed by over-tightening.
We carry the following valves for the maritime industry:
The reliability and quality of your valves and fittings for maritime applications are too important to be left up to chance. We at Mako Products can find just the right valves and fittings to suit all of your shipbuilding and maritime industry needs. Remember, all of the above valves and fittings feature our patented i-Fitting red ring leak-free technology.
