ZAHROOF VALVES INCREASE EFFICIENCY 5%, SAVE COMPRESSOR FROM MAJOR DAMAGE
INCREASE EFFICIENCY 5%,
SAVE COMPRESSOR FROM
A major Oil & Gas company sought to increase efficiency and reliability in dirty service. StraightFlo™ Valves were installed on one first stage and one second stage cylinder to directly compare performance against the OEM valve.
StraightFlo™ Valves increase efficiency by 5% and more than double previous valve life, performing flawlessly for years, while OEM plate valves fail in seven months. In March 2017, the compressor experiences a slug of liquid that deforms the piston rod on a cylinder with OEM plate valves. The cylinders with StraightFlo™ Valves handle the liquid with no issue and prevent damage.
STRAIGHTFLO™ VALVES LAST YEARS, OEM PLATE VALVES ONLY LASTED MONTHS
