Void Filling Valves


Void Filling Valves

Cla-Val 240M Series Ballast Valves control the balance and buoyancy of surface marine vessels.  Depending on sea conditions and individual ship requirements, Cla-Val hydraulically operated ballast valves open or close to fill or drain compartments to attain the desired level of buoyancy and to keep the ship in proper balance. They are also used to help facilitate the launching of small water craft from a larger vessel.  

Hull-mounted and submerged, these rugged valves are constructed of top-quality Naval Bronze materials for long life and minimal maintenance.

Whether in the ballast system of an enormous aircraft carrier with thousands of crew members or smaller surface vessels, Cla-Val ballast valves perform with reliability and precision, backed by nearly 70 years of experience in the military marine industry.
