Since its formation in Japan over 60 years ago, TOMOE has become a global leader in the production of high quality and technically advanced butterfly valves, actuators and control systems. Their dedication
to developing products that continue to satisfy the sophisticated demands of process control today has
earned them a reputation for supplying one of the finest and most comprehensive ranges of butterfly
valves and actuators in the world.
TOMOE products can be found operating in a wide range of industries worldwide including oil & gas,
petrochemical, marine, water treatment, vehicle manufacture and power generation, forming a trusted
and reliable part of the process in each and every application.
The European headquarters of TOMOE were established in Newport, South Wales in 1986 to develop the business in the UK, Europe, Africa, Middle East and North America.
In 1997, TOMOE Tritec Ltd was formed to design and manufacture high performance Triple Offset
Butterfly Valves. The Triple Offset design provides performance and benefits that are ideal for arduous,
high pressure, high temperature applications within the Oil & Gas, Petrochemical and Power Process
In April 2006, TOMOE Tritec Ltd was merged with TOMOE Valve Ltd. The newly combined company is
called TOMOE VALVE LTD, located at the European Headquarters in Newport, South Wales and handles
operations in the UK, Europe, Canada, Mexico, Middle East, Africa, and South America. From this site,
TOMOE implements a full programme of design, manufacture and valve assembly, as well as
maintaining comprehensive stocks for all TOMOE process valves.
TOMOE maintains large stocks of butterfly valves ready for fast and efficient delivery and a support
team of highly trained engineers is ready to provide technical help and practical advice wherever it is
needed. Their UK production facility also incorporates a Valve Actuation Centre offering a fast
turnaround of stock item valves and actuators that can be customised to exact specifications.
DHC & Air Conditioning
In the field of building utilities, TOMOE was the first to develop an aluminium die cast butterfly valve and the latest design with a high performance engineering plastic which prevents dew condensation. It made a breakthrough in space saving and excellent cost performance.
The DHC (District Heating and Cooling) System is a centralized heating/cooling system, which supplies a group of buildings in a certain area heated water, steam, cooling water and other energy media generated in one or more heat supply plants. The Tomoe butterfly valve can be used in all areas of these modern systems and as a result they make a huge contribution to the development and comfort of modern day urban life.
Water Treatment & Desalination
Water is a top priority of human life. For keeping rivers and lakes clean, companies are obliged to have their own water treatment equipment that can eliminate all the harmful elements from their waste water. The equipment today has been developed in such a manner that it removes toxic elements not only by using highly refined mechanical and chemical devices, but also by applying frontier technology of biodegradation process.
Superb leak tightness and the introduction of advanced materials have enabled TOMOE to become a market leader in this industry, where environmental awareness is at the fore.
Fluid flow lines in steel mills, chemical and pharmaceutical plants, food processing factories, paper mills and many other process industries have their own unique requirements for valves. These include services such as water, gas, steam, powder and granular fluids, both high pressure and high temperature. Tomoe products are well suited for use on all of these applications. Our reputation for high quality and reliability is constantly favored by both plant operators and end users alike.
In response to growing demands for environmental protection against global warming, acid rain, increasing CFC’s and pollution, more and more preventive actions are urgently needed. For applications found within environmental protection systems and energy preservation, a butterfly valve should satisfy various severe requirements including control capability under high temperature and pressure conditions. Taking an example of a geothermal power plant, a butterfly valve must withstand coarse sand, pointed fragments of rocks, and other hard debris.
As for the flue-gas desulfurization system of a fossil thermal power plant, the butterfly valves applied should be resistant to corrosion and erosion. With their outstanding features and capability, TOMOE butterfly valves are constantly supporting the environmental protection systems and public utilities of today.
Oil & Gas (Onshore & Offshore)
Tomoe Tritec metal seated triple offset butterfly valves are used on both offshore oil and gas platforms for a wide range of process control and isolation duties. They are also widely used at onshore refineries and processing terminals, where the critical nature of these process environments require repeatable tight shut off, long service
life and low maintenance. The triple offset butterfly valve is an ideal replacement for the conventional gate and ball valve.
Like public utilities and offshore plant facilities, TOMOE valves are fully approved for shipboard use by all the leading marine authorities. TOMOE plays an essential role in the heart of the ship, the engine and other critical
locations which require a compact and light weight design, as well as constant, accurate and reliable function for safe operation.
