Baker Hughes reduces emissions with launch of industry leading Low-E Packing

Baker Hughes has committed to environmental stewardship by reducing CO2 equivalent emissions 50% by 2030, and achieving net zero carbon footprint by 2050. Masoneilan has committed to support this clean air initiative through continuous development to surpass industry standards and exceed current day emission requirements with the launch of the NEW Masoneilan Low-E Packing series for reduced emissions.
With the inception of the EPA’s Clean Air Act in 1963, our industry has been tasked to develop improved solutions that can limit fugitive emissions for our customers. The new Masoneilan Low-E packing series far exceeds some of the most rigorous ISO and EPA specifications of < 100 and < 50 ppm in the market today. With over 100,000 cycles using both methane and helium test media, the Low-E series has been independently tested and verified for certification as low as 1 ppm for some of our premier products, including the flagship Camflex, rotary control valve. In addition, most globe and severe service valves have also been certified with results in the low range of 6-10 ppm, making a complete portfolio of best-in-class control valve solutions. CLLT (Certified Low Leak Technology) certificates are available upon request.
“Our Masoneilan goals have been to not only exceed the industry requirements for low emissions, but also to make this our standard solutions across the board.”, says James Lowery, Senior Product Manager of Masoneilan. “Masoneilan has been providing the industry with high quality, low emission solutions for more than 25 years, and over this time we have evolved many generations of offerings. Today, many suppliers can claim high performance, but side by side our portfolio is hard to match. Combining the Masoneilan VLM (Valve Lifecycle Management) advanced predictive diagnostic tools, we have a complimentary portfolio that is complete with not only a full suite of control valve and pressure relief product, but also predictive diagnostics that can detect deteriorating leak points before they evolve.”
