Condensate recovery provides thermal and water treatment benefits

Excess steam loss will lead to costly operation, while condensate backup will promote poor performance and may lead to water hammer. Traps can also remove non- condensable gases that reduce heat exchanger effectiveness. Valve Hospital has an established competence and...

Cryogenic Valves

Cryogenic valves are designed to be used not only in cold, but also in critical applications. They are thus most popularly used in Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) or Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) applications. Moreover, some gasses aren’t labeled “cryogenic” because of...

How Do Cryogenic Valves Work?

As its name suggests, cryogenic valves are designed to be used in very cold applications. They are thus most popularly used by companies that work with Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) or Compressed Natural Gas (CNG). For instance, the oil and gas industry frequently uses...
The Pros of Refurbishing Cryogenic Valves

The Pros of Refurbishing Cryogenic Valves

Original Strategy: Replace Valves Operational Challenges faced when replacing valves   No Technical Support from the OEM when valves fail. OEM refuses to share standards, technical drawings, measurements and angles for valves to seal. Costly downtime because...

Steam Traps: Load Pros & Cons

PROS: Boiler efficiency is not constant throughout the operating range of a typical boiler. The upper end of the operating range generally presents a decrease in efficiency also because of increased flue gas exit temperature. Excess boiler capacity on-line can result...

Different Types Of Steam Traps

The whole point of a steam boiler system is to move heat from one place to another using water as a sort of “conveyor belt.” The water picks up the heat at one end of the system, takes it to the other end of the system, and offloads it.  As we all know, when...
