Flowserve has improved the design of the Valtek FlowTop control valve to meet the global requirements for general service and moderately severe service applications.
Proper linkages of all the components that comprise automated valves are critical to the performance of process control operations. Historically, when valve automation first began, mounting kits made up of brackets and couplers to mount an actuator on top of a valve had to be machined by custom bracket manufacturers.
Though experts largely feel extremely confident in the ability to control the specification of the proper materials and components, utilize the proper tools, and calculate the correct torque values; one critical and often overlooked variable still looms large.

Spare parts are sometimes hard to come by on Alaska's North Slope. Take burner plugs, for instance. These consumable parts, found within ConocoPhillips’ original gas turbines at Kuparuk (a 40-year-old field), aren’t manufactured anymore.
Not many years ago, cryogenics – the production and behavior of materials at very low temperatures – was likely to be understood by a group of people with specialized knowledge in fields like aerospace. Working with cryogenic applications means working with systems and components that have very special design and performance requirements. The costs associated with manufacturing and testing can be extreme. For these reasons, relatively few manufacturers have become adept at developing and commercializing cryogenic products that can meet the performance needs of the end user, at a price point that is practical.
Celeros Flow Technology brand M&J Valve has introduced an improved version of its Model M-303 slab gate valve. The advanced design M-303 offers a host of features that will help our customers in the oil & gas sector to simplify installation and upgrades, improve safety and minimize environmental impacts – reducing total cost of ownership (TCO).
Despite the implementation of practices such as: utilizing new gaskets and fasteners, understanding the importance of thread and bearing surface lubrication, and using proper flange cleaning and inspection practices, many individuals still believe that a box wrench, some elbow grease, and experience are all that you really need.
The Round Rock Metropolis Council accredited an economic incentive arrangement on Thursday, Feb. 24, with Emerson that will consequence in $9 million in new expense and at minimum 50 new careers made.
Baker Hughes has been awarded a contract and granted notice to proceed by Venture Global LNG to provide a liquefied natural gas (LNG) system for the first phase of the Plaquemines LNG project in Louisiana.
