V-VALVES™

A new generation of valves.

The V-Valve™ is an innovative compressor valve that sets new benchmarks in compressor valve performance. Developed after 25yrs experience of compressor valve diagnostics, these valves act as individually replaceable cartridges that can be quickly replaced in the field without any machining or lapping. The straight through flow design guarantees flow increase, outstanding energy efficiency, lower power losses and increased running hours to name but a few of the benefits.

ABOUT

Because of the V-Valves™ highly aerodynamic flow path, turbulence is reduced in turn decreasing pressure drops and increasing flow. This leads to dramatic energy savings, increased precision closure as well as high resistance to corrosion and wear.

Aerodynamic flow reduces turbulence in the compressor and contributes to the cleanliness of the equipment. The strong plates are made for high pressure and speed which contributes to fatigue reduction and extended service life.

 

COMPRESSOR CHALLENGES

1. The reciprocating compressor valves are the "heart" of the machine.

2. Compressor valves are the leading cause of more than 70% of unscheduled shutdowns.

3. The valves fail mainly due to the mechanical impacts of their opening and closing during the operating cycle. The valves operate in a "self-destructive" manner, which also reduces operating hours.

4. Most of the conventional valve suppliers focus their efforts on reducing the mechanical impacts of the valves through the use of damping plates. This often compromises efficiency, performance, and / or reliability.
