New valves. Improved reliability.
The process is very dirty with liquid carryover and the customer experienced very poor valve life of around two months between failure. This was extremely costly due to lost production and maintenance. Our customer experienced temperature issues due to recycling gas on partial load with some of the other valve types they had tried.
Hi-Flo™ RD valves cut down on lost production and excessive maintenance.
We supplied CPI Hi-Flo™ RD valves primarily to overcome the reliability issues, but we also factored into the design the high temperature issue. The reliability improved significantly to achieve their targeted 12 months running and the temperature was not an issue due to the less restrictive flow path through the Hi-Flo™ RD valve.
