Crane ChemPharma launches new line of cast steel valves
Crane ChemPharma, a designer and manufacturer of fluid handling solutions, has launched a new line of cast steel valves for demanding applications.
Designed in accordance with the industry's latest standards, the new Pacific CSV line consists of gate, globe and check valves.
'Pacific has partnered with a world-renowned foundry to deliver the highest quality of cast steel valves to our customers worldwide,' says global business line manager Tarun Shivlani. 'These valves have been designed to exceed API 624 requirements and achieve industry leading fugitive emissions.'
Subject to Crane's development and testing process, each Pacific CSV valve is uniquely built and tested per API 598 standards for use in the global oil & gas, petrochemical, power and refining industries. The globe valves also comply with API 623 standard released specifically for globe valves.
The new line of valves has several improved features that enhance reliability and O&M including:
• The gate valve's fully-guided wedge, designed to ensure smooth operation in both horizontal and vertical orientations to deliver improved resistance to sticking
• The globe valve's line contact between disc and seat, which enables lower seating torque and faster set up.
• The swing check's disc fastener, which is restrained by the bonnet to eliminate the risk of a displaced disc and prevent damage to downstream equipment.
These valves are available in various sizes and materials of construction, including special alloys and stainless materials.
