Managing valve wear in FCC slurry oil service
Fluid catalytic cracking (FCC) is an important upgrading process for converting heavy oil feedstock into products such as gasoline, light fuel oils, and olefin-rich gases at oil refineries. In this process, a hot catalyst from the regenerator flows in a fluidized state through the riser tube into the reactor. Do you want to enhance the wear protection of the critical flow control devices in the FCC unit? Read on and join my presentation in Valve World.
40 years of butterfly valve performance
The evolution from an idea to a successful product family that can stand
the test of time requires both dedication and persistence. It all starts with
a challenge and innovative thinking. The most important ingredient, however,
is determined people who are willing to invest time and systematic hard work
into overcoming all obstacles along the long road to sustainable success.
There are no shortcuts. Just hard work. The evolution of the Neles butterfly valve Neldisc™ product family is no different
12 recommendations to minimize capital project start-up problems and lower total cost of ownership
Valves are a major investment, in every sense of the word, for process industry brownfield and greenfield projects. Particular attention is given to valves in severe, operation-critical, and safety-critical applications – products on which Valmet's flow control business has built its reputation – to ensure a timely and successful plant start-up. Read on to see our expert's recommendations.
What diagnostics are available in Neles ValvGuard VG9000?
There are two tests in Neles ValvGuard™ (VG9000) intelligent safety solenoid, where the most important diagnostics are based on partial stroke testing (PST) and the internal pneumatics test. Janne Laaksonen, Senior product manager at Neles, discusses the available diagnostics in more detail.
Reliable performance with unique metal seat technology
When we talk about long-lasting performance in regards to our modular butterfly valves, we are talking about long term reliability and a valves ability to maintain the same high-quality performance across its entire operational life cycle.
Erosion can be stopped
Erosion can be stopped: Many of the problems associated with erosion in valves can be controlled with proper selection and sizing, whilst alternative materials of construction can be a solution for more severe applications.
Increased productivity with durable valves at Twin Rivers Paper
At Valmet, we take care of even the smallest details and issues our customers might have. Our distributor Everest Automation helped our customer Twin Rivers Paper, in Edmundston, New Brunswick, Canada, to find a solution to the challenges they were have with leaking valves, which was resulting in lower productivity. We interviewed Gilles Theriault from Twin Rivers about the initial challenge they had, and the good results after the expert service.
Stock parts and ensure availability
Over recent years we have witnessed several events which only a decade ago would have been unthinkable. We all remember the photos of the small digger trying to free the massive cargo ship from the banks of Suez Canal, and we can still feel the effects of the viral pandemic. Moreover, the ever more frequent extreme weather patterns, such as floods and hurricanes, impose an additional uncertainty. There is clearly much more unpredictability and unrest around us. Just as the physical environment changes, so does the figurative environment we do business in; and these changes have certainly highlighted the fragility of the global supply chains.
