Lined Valve Co. Builds One of the World's Largest Valves

A Woodland company has created one of the world's largest valves: It's 34-feet tall, 11 feet wide and weighs 52,000 pounds - and it may open the flood gates for more work funded by federal economic stimulus dollars.

 

The valve fits a 96-inch diameter pipe for a Chicago storm and wastewater treatment plant.

 

The end-product proved so massive, the company rented a "90-ton crane to lift it up to get it on the truck" when it was shipped recently, said Robert Nye, operations manager for Lined Valve Company Inc.
