DAFRAM S.p.A., founded in 1956, was the first company to manufacture floating ball valves in Italy. With 50 years experience this ensures that they are equipped to deal with today’s exacting engineering requirements.
DAFRAM's factory is located in Urbisaglia (Macerata), in the middle of Italy, in an industrial complex covering 32.000 square meters, 12.000 of which are covered workshops. The factory consist of commercial, technical and engineering offices and of two extremely modern workshops which allows the production, assembly, testing, sandblasting and painting of ball valves both large & small size and weights.
The design and production staff includes qualified engineers with experience in all technical standards to meet our customer's special requirements. Modern design methods are employed to analyse specific stresses and deformation limits of valve bodies and main valve components.
The manufacturing process is continually improved and changed using the most advanced manufacturing technologies.
Both vertical and horizontal testing machines as well as equipment used to determinate valve operating torques, testing valves at low and high temperatures, allow DAFRAM's prototypes to be checked and verified on site and 100% of production to be tested, checked and certified before dispatch.
DAFRAM's engineering department is continually working to refine and improve products. The engineers work with the most advanced software applications such as Autocad, Pro-Engineer, Pro-Mechanica etc.
These advanced software applications are combined in Dafram with an extensive experience of more than 50 years in critical applications in the chemical, oil, gas and refining industries to design superior quality valves that meet the most demanding performance requirements of our customers.
Our Supply range includes Floating ball valve in one, two & three piece design. Size range available: from ½” – 12”, class ratings covered are from Class 150 through Class 600 (Ratings up to Class 1500 available to order).
