Largest slab gate valve ever produced in PetrolValves

Another “extra-large” valve is going to be included in the equipment that PetrolValves is supplying to an onshore gas terminal in the Nordic.

PetrolValves is working on a 42” isolation valve – Class ASME 1500 through conduit Slab Gate Valve (reverse acting) with electric actuator – for an onshore gas terminal. Such a majestic size valve is beginning to take shape as it is currently being carved out of its 70-tons body in our Castellanza workshop.

• Metal to metal seating;
• Full bi-directional with DBB and DIB features;
• Product life span 50 years;
• End-to-End dimension 4,000 mm.

“We embrace the technical challenges that come with building Slab Gate Valves of such dimensions,” said Sandro Malquori, CEO of PetrolValves Group. “While this is the largest Slab Gate Valve ever produced in PetrolValves, with the combination 42” and Class ASME 1500, many of our Double Expanding Valves have been operating in the Nordic area for over 30 years.”
