NuclearCunico - Nuclear Applications

cunico manufactures various types of fittings in a vast range of materials, sizes and pressure rating from 150# to 6000# with extensive applications in nuclear submarines and aircraft carriers, as well as the commercial nuclear industry. Our expertise is “custom fittings” for unusual and demanding applications such as the nuclear industry.

Specialty products for the nuclear industry are bellows seal valves, y-type strainers and cartridge valves, all manufactured by “sister company”, Dynamic Controls. The bellows seal valves have extensive nuclear applications, including radioactive waste water, liquid sodium, nitric acid containments and more. The cartridge valves have a large installed base in Nuclear reactor applications for nuclear submarines and aircraft carriers.

PetrochemicalCunico - Petrochemical Applications

cunico custom fittings, in special alloys and custom sizes and configurations manufactured from seamless tube, and forgings have applications in the petrochemical industry where high-integrity products are required for special processes, environmental, and safety considerations.

The cunico regulator control valves have many applications offshore and onshore, from fire protection (air and nitrogen regulation) to chemical injection regulation control.  The Dynamic Controls cartridge valve is ideally suited for high operating pressure applications (0 to 6000 psi) where safety and reliability are key requirements for all gases and liquids.  The bellows seal valves have applications with highly corrosive chemicals where zero-leakage and reliability are important requirements.
