Rotork Australia introduces a new range of stainless steel hydraulic valves for offshore applications.
Manufactured by Rotork Midland for the offshore oil and gas industry, the new stainless steel hydraulic valves are recommended for wellhead chemical injection and chemical dosing applications at offshore well and pipeline installations.
Providing a simple, cost-effective and compact alternative to conventional actuated process valves, the Midland-ACS valve range is manufactured in 316L Super Duplex stainless steel as well as titanium, and is suitable for on/off control of a variety of chemicals including MEG, corrosion inhibitors, hydrate inhibitors, scale inhibitors and coagulants in addition to seawater, fresh water and hot water.
The valves can operate at pressures up to 690 bar and CVs up to 4.1 using Ex d, Ex e mb solenoid or hydraulic pilot operators. Metal to metal or metal to ceramic seats and a wide range of sealing elastomer materials are available to ensure a tight shut-off and compatibility with operating fluids. Exi proximity sensors can be fitted to provide remote open and closed valve position indication.
