Clarke Valve has announced that it has secured two Provincial approvals on its expected path to a countrywide Canadian Registration Number (CRN).
The Alberta Boilers Safety Association (ABSA) issued the first approval for Clarke Valve to sell its proprietary Shutter Valve product line in Canada. The Technical Standards and Safety Authority (TSSA) has approved the Shutter Valve for commercial distribution in Ontario.
The patented design of the Shutter Valve enables it to reduce fugitive methane emissions by 97%, compared to commonly available “low emissions” globe valves. Clarke Valve is currently developing a pilot project with one major oil and gas producer headquartered in Calgary, and discussions are underway with several other end users in Ontario and Alberta.
“Effective immediately, Clarke Valve is now supporting sales to our oil and gas partners and other end-users in Canada,” announced Kyle Daniels, President and CEO. “This aligns our mission very closely to the Canadian initiatives to reduce greenhouse gas emissions under the Global Methane Challenge, Paris Climate Agreement, and the Canada Environmental Protection Act, 1999.”
