RAVENNA, Italy (March 06, 2017) - Crane ChemPharma & Energy, a Crane Co. business and leading provider of highly engineered fluid handling solutions, is pleased to announce its participation in the Offshore Mediterranean Conference & Expo, March 29-31. (Hall 2, Stand N31 in the Pala De Andre). This year, Crane will showcase its latest product introduction, the Crane®FKX 9000 Triple Offset Valve.

Engineered to address the inherent dangers of demanding applications, the Crane®FKX 9000 adheres to the industry's most stringent standards, delivering exceptional flow control, optimized Cv and low Delta P, as well as zero-leak* shut off in high-temperature applications, hydrocarbon service and emergency shut down (ESD) service. Featuring an optimized seat angle, metal-to-metal sealing, innovative stem seal and shaft design, and torque seating, this new valve offers numerous cost, safety and performance benefits. Originally available in sizes ranging from 3" to 24", the Crane®FKX 9000 will now be available up to 48."

"We are very excited to bring the Crane®FKX 9000 to OMC this year, especially with the introduction of the expanded sizes that can prove beneficial to the chemical, power and oil & gas industries," said Ralf Becker, Global BLM TOV, Crane ChemPharma & Energy. "Crane strives to serve as a dependable business partner to our customers, offering a comprehensive product portfolio of solutions for a wide range of demanding fluid handling applications, and the Crane®FKX 9000 is a testament to that mission that we can't wait to share with the OMC community."

In addition to this new product, Crane ChemPharma & Energy will also display several of its other trusted products, including the Pacific® Pressure Seal, Duo-Chek® and Noz-Chek® energy solutions.


Pacific® Pressure Seal Valves

Engineered to provide best-in-class performance to Power and Refining industries worldwide, Pacific® Pressure Seal valves deliver superior solutions in challenging environments. The valve's self-aligning, spring-loaded discs reduce actuator torque requirements, while positive disc travel stops are cast into the body for uniform seat wear and improved sealing. With no wedging force, the disc reacts freely to thermal changes, ensuring maximum performance despite changes in temperature.


Duo-Chek® and Noz-Chek® Highly-engineered Check Valves

Duo-Chek® wafer valve design is generally stronger, lighter, smaller, and more efficient than conventional swing check valves. To best protect process equipment and deliver the lowest total cost of ownership, the innovative dual-plate design of the Duo-Chek® uses springs to increase the valve reaction and response time. This unique design greatly accelerates the valve's dynamic response time while dramatically reducing the water hammer effect for non-slam performance.

Noz-Chek® valves are specifically designed for fast-reversing systems where backflow is a constant concern. In critical service applications, Noz-Chek® Non-Slam Check Valves minimize the damaging effects of water hammer in fluid systems, eliminate the chatter associated with conventional valves, protect rotating equipment from damage due to flow reversal, minimize pressure loss in piping systems and provide quick dynamic response to reduce reverse velocity.
