LDPE is also called high pressure polyethylene production. Feedstock is ethylene gas which is processed in either an autoclave (ICI) or tubular reaction (BASF). Both are high pressure processes up to 3600bar. Products are plastic pellets that are usually extruded to are film from which plastic bags or other packaging material is made from.
The high pressures along with the requirement for a lasting performance and simple maintenance ability makes this a very challenging process for valves.
For this process MIAM produces shut off angle and straight pattern globe, control, safety, check and 3 way bypass/injection valves. MIAM’s full range of LDPE valves ensure a reliable and long lasting quality performance at a very favorable cost of ownership.
We would be very pleased to assist you for the correct application of our valves in your process plant or for further questions or information that you may have.
