Our valves help in the manufacture of petrochemical commodities including ethylene, propylene, polyolefins, aromatics, and associated by-products such as ethylene oxide (EO), ethylene glycol (EG), monoethylene glycol (MEG), purified terephthalic acid (PTA) and many more.

Aromatics: Benzene, toluene & xylenes (BTX)

Aromatics complexes are used to produce benzene, toluene and xylenes. These products are extremely dry and create surface friction. Our valves ensure protection against erosion by providing suitable coatings for trim materials.

P-Xylene separation valves

Our metal-seated rotary ball valves are hard-coated and low temperature compatible, minimising friction and wear. Furthermore, quick response and high cycle compatibility is ensured with the Neles SwitchGuard™ controller.

Benzene and toluene extraction valves

In this process, valves must be able to withstand half- or full vacuum conditions, as well as ensure accurate emission control due to the flow medium’s toxicity. Our triple-eccentric butterfly valves boast a robust design, resulting in extended service life while reducing material and piping costs.
