The energy sector has passed through various atmospheric and process environmental challenges. How big is the challenge? It depends on the region, application, process media, and industry. It is also not limited to these factors. One of these challenges is Chloride Induced Stress Corrosion Cracking (CISCC).Continue reading
Requirements are not very high in the regular refrigeration market, which includes supermarkets and industrial applications. But things are different in the Petrochemical as well as Oil & Gas Industry. As an expert for industrial valves, I often notice that the demand for high-quality valves has increased significantly in these industries. But what is the reason? Let`s find it out!Continue reading
In plant construction, you often come up against challenges where standard valves no longer fit. Then, you need professional support who can advice you what to do when standard solutions don`t meet the requirements of the installation.
Some time ago we have created a simple but very helpful solution for a pressure gauge manufacturer. The solution refers to the alignment of the pressure gauge display.Continue reading
Whether in Alaska, Norway or Russia: Industrial valves, such as those used in chemical plants or the oil industry, are exposed to extreme cold as low as -55°C in some regions. However, not all industrial valves are suitable for operation in extreme cold. Three criteria are decisive.Continue reading
The Indian Oil Corporation Ltd. could reduce the installation effort from 16 hours to one hour by using Close Coupled Installations.Continue reading
During my last 12 years in the instrumentation business I have been asked many times at which pressure a manifold can still be operated. As well as, what is the difference between the following two non-rotating stem designs:Continue reading
Pressures of several hundred bar, temperatures up to 600 degrees Celsius: Industrial valves, such as those used in power plants, the oil and gas industry or in chemical process systems, work under the most arduous conditions. In such cases, safety is the most important aspect. Not only the enormous pressure, but also the often toxic or aggressive process media can quickly become a hazard for people and the environment.Continue reading
