IMI Critical has received its first order for new triple eccentric butterfly valves, tailored for Fluid Catalytic Cracking (FCC) applications, thanks to a successful collaboration between the company and its customers.
IMI Z&J Houston has won a contract to supply $1.5m worth of IMI Remosa’s triple eccentric butterfly valves, which it developed in co-operation with IMI Orton, to solve a customer’s problem with valves manufactured by a competitor.
A refinery in Oklahoma, USA, which was in the process of revamping its FCC unit and the isolation system for two carbon monoxide boilers. Keen to solve issues with high leakage rates and operational problems with a competitor’s valve, the customer approached IMI Z&J Houston for alternate valve designs to reduce gas leakage.
IMI Orton, IMI Remosa and IMI Z&J Houston collaborated to develop the new product, combining the well-established IMI Orton triple eccentric butterfly valve design with the features required to withstand the severe conditions of the FCC process, in which IMI Remosa is a specialist.
IMI Remosa manufactured a prototype valve. The design has significantly better shut-off performance resulting in little or no leakage and high safety levels, which, on testing, met the customer’s leakage rate requirements. This resulted in an order two triple eccentric butterfly valves. This is the first project using this valve design and will help open a new market for this application.
