  • Upgrading FCC-unit valve controllers without disruption

    In the fluid catalytic cracking (FCC) unit of a large refinery built in the 1940s in the US, a variety of control valve types and brands, along with their proprietary valve controllers, had been installed over the years. This had led to production inconsistency and disruption. The unit wanted to have one type of controller with multiple bracket designs to fit the wide variety of valves in the plant.

  • 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.
