Industry: Oil and gas
Plant type: Natural gas processing
Application: Emergency shutdown (ESD) valves on de-ethanizer reboilers
Location: Dallas, West Virginia
Overview: This project was a new project build; the plant never had a valve in this application - (ESD) valves on de-ethanizer reboilers - at this site. These severe service applications require three separate actuated valves: two 12” 300# ASME/ANSI class valves for the hot oil application (Therminol 55) to the de-ethanizer and one 8” 300# ASME/ANSI class valve for the hot oil to the amine still. ValvTechnologies and Portersville PRD are the trusted advisors and preferred suppliers of the industry-leading high-performance, zero-leakage isolation valves in critical applications for the engineering firm completing the design: the firm knew they could count on the superior expertise and global experience of ValvTechnologies and Portersville PRD.
Requirement: The customer required a metal seated, zero-leakage valve with design temperature rating to 575˚F and closing speed of 30 seconds. Additionally, the plant required a competitive price and quick delivery for a reliable automated ball valve package.
Solution: ValvTechnologies supplied two 12” 300# Class valves for the hot oil (Therminol 55) to the de-ethanizer and one 8” 300# Class valve for the hot oil to the amine still. Benefits to the customer include:
ValvTechnologies and Portersville PRD together engineered turnkey automated ESD valve solutions that exceeded the expectations: with high safety factors, the customer has confidence in the event of an emergency that these systems will now safely be disabled to prevent potential catastrophic plant damage.
