Marine Industrial Valves

Shipbuilders, naval architects, marine engineers, ship modernization companies, and repair operations all require specific types of valves for the marine industry. Warren Valve has a proven track record manufacturing and supplying valves to the ship and barge builders.

Valves for Marine Applications

There are a variety of maritime valve applications, including these common types of valves and their uses in the barge and shipbuilding industry:

  • Gate valve: An on/off valve, gate valves are utilized to manage the flow of liquids, such as water and fuel, on ships and offshore structures, offering durability and suitability for high-pressure and corrosive settings. This valve sees extensive use in marine cargo, fuel control, and ballast systems.
  • Globe valve: Regulates flow, usually for cooling fuel oil, water, or steam systems.
  • Check valve: One-way flow control that prevents back flow, such as in a bilge system.
  • Ball valve: Quick operating, quarter turn on/off flow control with minimal systemic pressure change and bubble tight shut off.


Warren Valve manufactures with the aim of providing naval engineers a wide range of options and certifications for marine industrial valves:

  • Cast and forged globe valves: Dimensions from 1/4" to 36", ANSI 150 to 1500 in carbon, stainless, and exotic alloys.
  • Cast and forged check valves: Dimensions from 1/4" to 42", ANSI 150 to 2500 in carbon, stainless, and exotic alloys.
  • Cast and forged wedge gate valves from .5" to 36", ANSI 150 to 2500 in carbon, stainless, and exotic alloys.
  • Forged trunnion-mounted ball valves from 2" to 48", ANSI 150 to 1500 in a range of materials with advanced seat design and valve functionality.
  • Cast and forged flanged 1, 2, and 3-piece floating ball valves, from 1/4" to 10", ANSI 150# to 2500, and 800 to 6000 WOG, available in carbon, stainless, and exotic alloys.

American Bureau of Shipping Certification

Those needing to meet the American Bureau of Shipping specifications and U.S. Coast Guard Certificate of Approval are covered, as Warren Valve carries both certifications.

Tug & Barge Valves
