The inventor of the triple-eccentric metallic sealing system
"When I registered the first patent for the triple-eccentric sealing system in 1960, I was convinced that this was the initiation for the development of a new market. I am pleased to confirm that my conviction was well founded, and that we were able to convince the sceptics of the time. Our company has always remained one step ahead in the butterfly valves range. We plan and develop products which others still believe to be unattainable. It is not always easy to fulfil such high expectations, but it always remains a very exciting challenge."
Karl Adams (1898 - 1983)
Founder of ADAMS valves
