Modified Trunnion mount

Situation

When one of our customers in the energy sector needed a specialist valve on a short lead time for a project they were working on in Australia, they faced a potential 3 month wait for normal manufacturer/supplier lead times.

Solution

Econosto UK were able to modify a stock 12” Class 300 SRI trunnion-mounted ball valve. Removing one of the flanges, a pipe pup was welded on and integrity checked by radiography.  The valve was then subjected to low temperature testing in accordance with Shell specifications.
In parallel with this operation, Econosto were busy designing and building a control panel and actuation system using components from approved suppliers. The complete acutated valve assembly was ready within 1 month despite being produced over the Christmas period.
 
 

Saving

The customer had the valve almost 2 months earlier than expected, helping them to keep their project within agreed timescales and avoid late delivery penalties.
