  • Fugitive emission standards – remedy or futility?

    Plant owners are being forced to spend more time and money to stay in compliance with the lower emission mandates. Several reports state that 50 to 60% of emissions from a plant are attributed to external leakage from valves.

  • Advanced slurry valves promote efficiency and productivity

    A short article looking at the sound reasoning for using advanced slurry valves in a number of industries where targeted efficiencies and productivities require process parameters that may seem totally intolerable for materials and construction – namely nonstop exposure to abrasive and erosive solids that often move at very high velocities.

  • How to eliminate erosion and abrasion caused by catalyst fines in FCCU?

    This entry describes how an installed Neles erosion/abrasion resistant ceramic valve solution has helped a customer improve FCC unit performance and profitability. In this particular case eroding 2″ to 10″ valves in a refinery’s fluid catalytic cracking (FCC) unit were causing problems that degraded both productivity and profitability. Neles application engineers analyzed the problem and provided a solution that quickly paid itself back many times over.

  • How to improve valve service life in Catalyst Cracking Units

    A catalyst, by definition, is a substance that enhances a chemical reaction. In the refining industry, catalysts are extensively used in many upgrading processes. One common upgrading process in refineries is the Fluid Catalytic Cracking unit (FCC) unit, which converts heavier distillation cuts into lighter, more profitable products, such as gasoline. This unit has many severe service valve applications that require special attention to design and material selection.
