Plant type: Chemical
Application: Hydrogen Isolation
THE WIN: This customer had a long standing
history of using “Y” pattern globe valves for isolation valves in hydrogen isolation service. After reviewing the benefits of the ValvTechnologies’ zero-leakage design, the customer changed their specification to require ValvTechnologies’ zero-leakage, metal seated ball valves.
Plant type: H-oil unit
SOLUTION: ValvTechnologies' decades of engineering experience led to the design of its superior, severe service zero-leakage isolation valves that exceed industry standards. In this case, it also led to ValvTechnologies' largest ever h-oil project win and the displacement of a former firmly ingrained competitor.
Plant type: Petrochemical
Product: TrunTech® trunnion dosing cup
SOLUTION: A Texas polyethylene plant had valves grouped in a pair of fours with a drive system that could operate one or multiple valves as required. Instead of a traditional hole through the valve, these unique valves had a dosing cup that metered catalyst into the reactor, rotating 360° based on the drive system.

Plant type: Refining
Application: Coking – furnace heater isolation
SOLUTION: ValvTechnologies committed to the customer’s short lead time requirement based on their on-site delivery needs by offering expedite options with existing coker inventory/stock, changing out to forgings where able and working with valued suppliers to expedite materials with negligible impact on overall project cost.
Industry: Heavy oil
Plant type: Refinery
Application: LC finer
Location: Texas City, Texas
Product: V Series
SOLUTION: ValvTechnologies’ replaced approximately 250 valves in the late 1990’s due to issues with the competitor’s valves. The facility ran for 14 years without needing to service ValvTechnologies’ products. ValvTechnologies’ products continue to perform exceptionally well, solving the plants problems, eliminating fires, leaks and equipment failures previously experienced with competitive products.
Industry: Upstream oil & gas
Plant type: Oil field
Application: Molecular sieve dehydration units
SOLUTION: The customer switched to ValvTechnologies’ V1-4, solid Inconel 825 and the valves lasted for two years vs. the competitor’s 1-90 days and saved them millions of dollars of lost production. The customer has now standardized on ValvTechnologies’ valves in all their molecular sieve units. A second order was placed for 74 V Series valves, sizes 12” and 16” in solid Inconel.
Plant type: Refinery
SOLUTION: ValvTechnologies designed and manufactures a pulsejet valve to control the flow of syngas needed to disrupt the formation of the char cake. The valve satisfies the service conditions for operation of eight months or more, depending on the actual cycle time of the valve. To develop the most robust solution, ValvTechnologies designed the valve to meet the end user service requirements and agreed to some of the harshest requirements available.
