Check Valves in the Natural Gas Industry: Explore Our eBook
Natural gas demand rises in tandem with economic growth. For example, in the Utica and Marcellus Shale areas, the need for metering facilities and gas compression stations has expanded rapidly in recent years. Forecasts suggest that this ongoing infrastructure expansion should continue for the foreseeable future.
A Large Natural Gas Company in West Virginia was experiencing issues with its piston check valves. They were installed at its compressor station located near the natural gas underground storage.
Six of the 6” 900# WCB/SS DFT® model PDC® Check Valves were the right solution to replace the piston check valves originally installed for this application.
DFT® Model PDC® Features:
- 2” to 26” line size
- ASME class 150 to 1500
- RF & RTJ flanged ends
- ASME B16.10 face-to- face dimensions
- Standard Body Materials:
- A216 WCB carbon steel
- A351 CF8M stainless steel
- A352 LCC low-carbon
- Stainless steel trim
- Center-guided/dual-guided stem
- Spring assisted silent closing, non-slam
- Tight shutoff – lapped disc & seat
- Horizontal or vertical installation
- Protected spring
- Axial Flow
- Nozzle style
