Düsseldorf, Germany (Nov. 17, 2014) – Crane ChemPharma & Energy, a leading provider of highly-engineered solutions for fluid handling applications worldwide, are pleased to announce the launch of three new products during the 2014 Valve World Düsseldorf Conference & Expo (Hall 3, booth E51). The Xomox®XLC, Xomox®FK and Pacific®CSV will be on display for the first time, in addition to the numerous products that comprise Crane’s comprehensive valve portfolio.
“This year’s Valve World Conference in Düsseldorf provides us with the ideal platform to introduce a diverse new solution set to our customers in Europe and throughout the world,” said Jürgen Sonderschäfer, Vice President of Sales for Crane ChemPharma & Energy. “More importantly, however, we are excited to use this opportunity to communicate directly with our customers and better understand how we can continue to provide them with the best solutions to their needs.”
Xomox®XLC fully-lined ball check valves offer economical solutions for the vast majority of chemical applications with a unique flexible seat that enables Class A and API-598 sealing, a first for lined ball check valves. Critical equipment is protected from cross contamination and the effects of backflow, even in the horizontal position where the XLC’s angled ribs guide the ball tightly into the seat. With metal-to-metal contact at the joint seal and wide conical plastic connection, the risk of dangerous external leaks is drastically reduced by the Xomox®XLC.
Engineered to address the inherent dangers of volatile chemical applications, the Xomox®FK adheres to the industry’s most stringent standards and combats the harmful effects of temperature and pressure fluctuation. Three independent stem seals offer superior fugitive emissions control, and are certified to EPA Method-21, ISO-15848 and TA-Luft according to VDI 2440. Self-relieving seats relieve excess pressure to protect the integrity of the valve while maintaining bi-directional operation. The patented SX ball stem design provides high maximum stem torque capability and built-in side load resistance, which extends valve life under severe conditions including thermal cycling.
Designed to exceed industry fugitive emissions standards with outputs as low as 20ppm, new Pacific®CSV cast steel gate, globe and check valves offer superior performance to the Oil & Gas, Power and Refining industries worldwide. The CSV gate valve’s fully-guided wedge ensures smooth operation in both horizontal and vertical orientations to deliver improved resistance to sticking, while the globe valve features a uniquely-designed line contact between disc and seat for lower seating torque and faster set up. The CSV swing check disc fastener is restrained by the bonnet to eliminate the risk of a displaced disc and prevent damage to downstream equipment.
In addition to launching new products during the show, Crane will distribute copies of TP410 and deliver a presentation about their latest white paper, which focuses on functional safety in the chemical process industry.
