If you are responsible for liquid pipelines, you need to protect your plant and personnel from the risks of a surge event. Celeros Flow Technology’s M&J Valve brand has just published a new brochure that details the products and services they offer in this field.
“Transient surge events are a potential risk on any liquid pipeline,” explains Eduardo Zani, Service Operations Director. “They can be triggered simply by closing a valve too quickly, causing a rapid change in pipeline pressure. The resulting pressure surge travels through the pipeline at speeds of up to 1000 m/s. It can cause severe infrastructure damage, loss of product and environmental harm, as well as posing a significant risk to personnel safety. M&J Valve has developed a comprehensive range of products and services to help customers mitigate these risks.”
M&J Valve’s range of surge relief systems are based on the DANFLO axial surge relief flow control valve, which offers a very quick response time and high flow capacity, making it ideally suited to surge control applications. These valves are engineered to track unabated surge-wave pressure transient: opening quickly, then closing without slamming shut.
“Our nitrogen-operated DANFLO surge relief valve is ideally suited to dirty service, such as crude oil and sea water pipelines. We also offer a pilot-operated alternative for clean service applications,” says Eduardo.
Alongside these surge relief valves (SRV), M&J Valve offers a compact control module, comprising a control panel, bottle rack and plenum. DANFLO SRVs and control modules can be specified as individual units or as part of a single- or multi-run skid system. For the ultimate in surge relief protection, M&J Valve also offers its patented rate-of-rise system. This combines the DANFLO SRV with a predictive pressure rate-of-rise system to allow pre-emptive action against a developing surge event.
In addition to its quality OEM surge flow valves and systems, M&J Valve offers customers total lifecycle support, including modular and highly customizable skid construction, engineering design services, installation and commissioning, and maintenance services.
