Frequently Asked Valve Questions

If would like to know more, please get in touch and we’ll be happy to answer your questions.

The most common types of valves in this industry are ball valves, gate valves, globe valves, check valves, butterfly valves, and plug valves. Each type serves a specific purpose, from regulating flow to preventing backflow, and is chosen based on the specific requirements of a task.

Material choice is crucial due to the corrosive and high-pressure environments in the hydrocarbon industry. Common materials include carbon steel, stainless steel, alloy steels, and sometimes special alloys for extreme conditions. The material must resist corrosion, withstand high pressures and temperatures, and be compatible with the type of oil or gas being handled.

Regular maintenance ensures the longevity, safety, and efficiency of valves. In the hydrocarbon industry, poorly maintained valves can lead to leaks, spills, or even catastrophic failures, resulting in environmental damage, safety hazards, and financial losses.

Environmental regulations often dictate the design and operation of valves to minimize leaks and emissions. This includes requirements for low emission valves, the use of specific materials, and design features like double block and bleed capabilities to prevent leaks.

Safety valves, or relief valves, are critical for preventing overpressure conditions that could lead to equipment failure or explosions. They automatically release pressure when it exceeds a predetermined limit, ensuring the safety of the system.

Valves can be operated manually, electrically, pneumatically, or hydraulically. The choice depends on factors like the size of the valve, the required precision, the environment (especially in remote or hazardous locations), and the need for automation.

To minimise leakage, the industry uses valves with tight shut-off capabilities, like ball valves and plug valves. Maintenance routines, the use of high-quality sealing materials, and adherence to operational protocols are also key strategies to prevent leakage.

Yes, valves can be automated using actuators and control systems. Automation offers benefits like remote operation, increased precision, improved safety, and better efficiency, especially in large-scale or hazardous operations.

Temperature affects material selection and design. Valves must be able to operate reliably under the temperatures they will encounter, which could range from very cold in arctic environments to very hot in processing applications. Special materials and designs are used for extreme temperatures.
