Make in India! This is the message that Hon’ble Prime Minister of India, Shri Narendra Modi has been emphasising to Industry leaders across the world. Accordingly, Advance Valves has made a happy declaration that in recent months it has successfully manufactured and tested large-sized and high pressure-rated High Performance Triple Eccentric Butterfly Valves meant for Cryogenic applications.
With size and rating of 500mm (20”) ANSI # 900, this valve designed for very high pressure ratings (140 bar, or 2050 psi), and is also meant to operate at temperatures in the low region of -196 ˚C (-320 ˚F). This product, coupled with other cryogenic valves, including larger sized 42” # 300 Triple Eccentric Butterfly valves, will be deployed on American shores in Chevron Phillips Chemical (CPChem) Company’s US Gulf Coast (USGC) Petrochemical project, a project sparked by shale resource development. Based on the high-end requirements of the international clientele, the company has in-house cryo testing capability for valve sizes upto sixty inches, perhaps India’s largest testing facility.
