SEVERE SERVICE VALVES

EFFECTIVE SOLUTIONS FOR DEMANDING CONDITIONS

We can create solutions that are effective in the most demanding and arduous of conditions and environments. We’ve provided severe service valves for over 40 years and have the products and expertise needed to meet the needs of such applications.

WHAT IS SEVERE SERVICE?

Whilst there is still no hard and fast definition of ‘severe service’ for liquid services, it is assumed to have at least one of the following characteristics:

 

  • Pressure drop of more than 50 bar (700psi).
  • Flashing services Pv – P2 > 30 bar (435psi).
  • Multi-phase P1 – P2 > 30 bar (435psi).
  • Contaminated service.

OUR EXPERTISE IN SEVERE SERVICE SOLUTIONS

Our knowledge of severe service applications can help you ensure you get the right solution from the beginning and right through the lifecycle of the products. Severe service applications call for engineering quality, technical expertise and ongoing professional support.
THE IMPORTANCE OF TRIM DESIGN
Whilst trim design is still highly important in all applications, for severe service applications it really comes into its own. The nature of the conditions means that erosion, cavitation, vibration and noise can be even greater problems if not addressed correctly. Getting the trim design wrong can rapidly affect the condition and efficiency of the valve. Our vector velocity control trims have been specifically designed to handle the extreme changes in velocity and pressure that are typical in severe service applications.
