Swagelok has announced the release of the full-bore, bidirectional flow–capable GB series ball valve. The valve is engineered to provide flow rates at a working pressure of 6000 psig while simplifying installation, the company says, minimizing rework requirements, and delivering the reliable shutoff performance needed to keep workers safe and systems operating efficiently in a variety of demanding applications.
Safety is the top priority in refineries and plants around the world, and many of the differing applications within them require specific considerations to best protect staff members at all times.
Installing a process analyzer in a sampling system is a sizable investment, and often, it is one that requires solid financial justification. Conducting a return on investment (ROI) analysis is one way to demonstrate to management and procurement teams that a process analyzer is making a positive impact.
Medium- and high-pressure fittings, valves, and components from Swagelok are designed to meet requirements of demanding applications. These include:
When developing a steam heat exchanger or steam heat tracing system, designers must consider every element of the system before finalizing its design to avoid premature failure or under performance.
It’s no secret that process analyzers are more expensive than other measuring devices within your sampling system. Some organizations and procurement managers require justification for such expensive equipment in the form of a return-on-investment (ROI) analysis. Fortunately, much of the current process analyzer technology delivers a truly amazing ROI. However, some can result in a negative ROI due to poor system designs.
