Jordan Valve is part of Richards Industrials, which started with Jordan Valve as the only product line from 1955 to 1983. Since then, many more have been added. In 1983, Richards Industrials acquired the Hex Valve line from Circle Seal Corporation, a division of Brunswick . In 1986, they licensed a water dispenser product line from Bestobell Steam in England. In 1998, they acquired the Marwin Valve product line. In 2007, the Steriflow Valve was added to the Richards Industrials family, the LowFlow Valve was added in 2012, and the Steriflow Food and Beverage was the newest addition in January 2019, making up the 7th Richards Industrials' product line. Jordan Valve manufactures pressure and back-pressure regulators, temperature regulators, pneumatic and electric control valves and accessories for all processes in the chemical, petrochemical, oil and gas, refining, energy, food and beverage industries. The unique feature of a Jordan valve is the sliding-gate principle. A remarkably simple concept that offers superior performance and benefits not found in traditional seat and globe valves. The sliding-gate seat consists of two primary parts: a movable disc and a stationary plate with multiple openings. Together, this seat kit achieves performance, reliability and accuracy that is difficult to find in other valve designs. Jordan Valve valves are used in a wide variety of processes. Among other things, the company has an in-depth collaboration with General Electric on the design and manufacture of critical pressure-control valves for use in their turbines worldwide, and with TVA (the US's largest public electric utility) on the design and manufacture of a range of pressure-control valves used to improve fossil fuel plants. Jordan Valve is also DuPont's preferred supplier of pressure control valves worldwide.
