Across all our sectors and the chemical/process industries, safety and reliability are of paramount importance. It is essential that plants operate without interruption and turnarounds for plant maintenance or upgrades are fast and efficient.
We provide world class products across process industries where safety valves are required to protect pressure systems for steam, gases and liquids.
Safety valves have the function of preventing inadmissible overpressure in all pressurized systems like pipe systems, pressure vessels, power boilers and reactors in order to avoid danger to people, plant and the environment. They are set typically to the Maximum Allowable Working Pressure (MAWP) which is a higher pressure than the operating pressure of the system to be protected.
For these functional and operating requirements third party certifications and approvals of safety valves are required by laws, code and standards. IMI Bopp & Reuther safety valves fulfil this for all areas of the world (CE-marking, ASME section I, III and VIIII designator, Chinese and Russian type test approvals.
The IMI Bopp & Reuther Si series are most commonly used in process plants. The closed spring bonnet traps the process fluid in the valve and prevents a release to the environment. The straightforward design and reliable guidance of the stainless steel inside parts ensure free and repeated discharge cycles. Conventional safety valves are usually selected where a short outlet pipe leads to the atmosphere, where the fluid is safely discharged into low pressure systems and where the fluid is uncritical.
Our safety valves with bellows between the body and bonnet are designed for situations where there is excessive build-up of back pressure; where the fluid is highly viscous or contains solid fractions that could have a corrosive effect on the inner parts; where there is media with a very high temperature; or where by using of safety valves with lifting devices the environment should be 100% protected against pollution.
For process steam we offer best in class turbine bypass, steam conditioning and desuperheating products to ensure plant uptime and the most cost effective output. With class leading products, we are leaders in applications for sugar, ethanol, paper and pulp processing industries worldwide.
Our range of products serve high temperatures and ensure high repeatable quality, such as our range from IMI Z&J for the production of float glass. IMI Th Jansen provides air separation valves used across the world and approved by process licensors for the production of oxygen, hydrogen and other gasses.
