  • At the heart of the GTL process

    GTL technology involves conversion of methane to high molecular weight hydrocarbons from LPG to waxy paraffins. The process itself consists of mainly 3 steps, syngas production through steam reforming or partial oxidation, liquid production through Fischer-Tropsch (F-T) reactions with cobalt or iron-based catalyst followed by product updgrading through mild hydrocracking to convert high molecular weight waxes to LPG, naphta and diesel.

  • Intelligent solenoid valves: slash time and costs with knowledge

    When a refinery in South America was approaching its scheduled three-year maintenance shutdown, it decided to take advantage of the information provided from its intelligent solenoid valves. Earlier, the refinery had decided to install these valves on every emergency shutdown (ESD) valve to identify degradation by using partial stroke testing (PST) for these critical valves.

  • Valve portfolio built on innovations

    In 1973, Antti Nelimarkka, the creative engineer behind Neles range of valves, came up with an idea that was fine-tuned until production commenced in 1975. For the valves to be more reliable in demanding conditions and applications, Nelimarkka thought of using a metallic seat ring instead of a rubber one—and the game-changer was born.

  • Maximum pipeline performance requires maximum control

    In the US alone, there are approximately 95 000 miles of pipelines. All along the way, control valves should be optimizing throughput. But pipeline operations present a unique set of challenges for valves; they have to operate reliably and efficiently to handle crude oil impurities such as water, ice, dirt and sand 24/7/365. Another important issue is effectively managing through while dealing with noise and cavitation problems. These all can potentially result in costly safety and operational issues.
