LIVERPOOL BECOME CHAMPIONS

While a team like Liverpool and a company like MIR VALVE are worlds apart in what we do, there are many qualities that we share.

Seeing what Liverpool have achieved these last 3 years, it could not have been done without:
- Dedication by all
- Consistency
- Discipline & Energy
- Vision & Execution
- Determination to be the best week-in, week-out
- Adhering to the principles of quality, safety and integrity


We in MIR VALVE strive to be the same, we have our competitors and compete every week against them. We play to our customers to win them over with our performance: quality, safety, compliance, integrity, performance.

It is fortunate more than 50% of MIR VALVE employees are Liverpool supporters so on this note we are in good shape to look up, admire and aim to do the same in our Valve World.

SWING CHECK VALVES DELIVERY

We have now delivered our order of 10 pcs of API 6D swing check valves for installation onshore UAE consisting of.

MV15 Swing Check Valves
4", 10" CL.300/600, FB, RF
Body: CS, Trim: SS
Devlon V Insert
Manual operated
Qty 10 pcs.
EPC: Metron, Greece
End-User: Dubai Power (MEW)
Project: Aweer Power Station H Phase IV
Application: Power Plant
Installation: Onshore, UAE

Swing check valves are used in piping systems to prevent fluid backflow, are self-activating and do not require an external power source to work. MIR VALVE has an offer of Swing Check Valve sizes ranging from 2” to 36” ANSI CL. 150 - 2500. (Up to 36” CL. 150-900, Up to 30” Cl. 1500, Up to 20” Cl.2500)

Swing Check Valves allow for full, unobstructed flow, and automatically close as pressure decreases. Full closing of the clapper/disc occurs when flow reaches zero and obviously, all flow in the reverse direction is prevented. The minimal turbulence afforded by this type of check valve allows for minimal pressure loss as fluid travels through the valve. Lower system pressure loss lowers costs associated with pump or compressor sizing.

FAT, FE AND CRYOGENIC TESTING OF ESDV BALL VALVES AT -196 DEG.C

We have completed FAT, Fugitive Emission and Cryogenic testing at -
196 deg C of two pieces of ESDV Cryogenic ball valves that have
successfully past all tests.

The valves will be installed in a Regasification Plant, onshore Malaysia.

DID YOU KNOW?

Ball Valve Manufacturers design and attach various types of valve supports to their products and they can serve functions ranging from the temporal to the permanent. At the most basic level, the valve support (or legs) is meant to take vertical load and provide stability to allow for handling, transportation and facilitate installation.

However, once the valve is installed, it may well be that the valve support is no longer needed, and the plant operators may wish them removed and so would prefer removable supports.

In certain cases, the operators are happy to leave them on to allow ease of removal and handling for future maintenance. In some cases, especially for larger valves, the piping or pipeline designers may require that the valve support be left on as part of the overall piping system support as factored in as pipe stress analyses considerations; the weight of the valve needs to be supported directly underneath. Due to these varied requirements, it is always a good idea to communicate this to the vendor at the time of purchase (preferably via datasheet), so that the permanence (or removability) of these supports can be designed into the product before manufacture.

These are relatively minor modifications the valve manufacturer can make to the product with relatively little effort and cost but if neglected, can be a source of pricey inconveniences and delays during the valves' operational life.

Please see below some examples of different valve support types for the same product.
