To many in our industry, a valve is just a valve. It releases cargo tank pressure and ensures fire safety. No more. No less. Fulfilling the IMO’s standards is all that matters.
At Bay Valves, we think this mindset is too narrow, and living up to the IMO’s outdated standards is not enough anymore.
We go beyond what’s expected, pushing the boundaries of what valve systems can achieve. We do this to maintain environmental and economic balance. And ensure clear-cut safety and transparency at every level across all industries.
We carve our own path, producing reliable, cost-effective valve systems for your offshore or marine company. Our products go beyond certifications and regulations because we believe in a better future.
A valve isn’t just a valve. It’s a symbol of change in the industry.

The High Velocity Valve is certified as a flame arrester, i.e. a device to prevent the passage of flames as specified in IMO MSC/Circ. 677. A P/V valve is a pressure-vacuum safety valve. It is a safety valve that opens within pre-set values of both pressure and vacuum.
Hammering is known to cause flask-back and explosions on tankers. A hammering valve is out of control and cannot keep sufficient velocity on the exit gas to prevent the passage of flames. Due to low manufacturing cost, the weight-loaded high velocity valve became dominant, which is why hammering is prevalent on many vessels.
All makes and sizes of valves can be tested using just one portable test kit. All it requires is compressed working air and thus no EeX-requirement, which means it can be used on the deck. When the valve is pressurized on a dedicated test bench, it will either jump open or pressure reading will just be stable depending on the specific valve design.
What our costumers say
Last year we purchased a number of the hi velocity bay valves (details below) and fitted them on one of our drill ships. I am delighted to say that we have carried out two operations using these bay valves and they performed very well.
