STRAIGHTFLO™ SS COMPRESSOR VALVES
StraightFlo™ SS (severe service) valves provide unmatched reliability, efficiency, serviceability, and savings in the most demanding downstream applications.
Manufactured with durable stainless steel housings, StraightFlo™ SS valves provide reliable performance with highly corrosive gases encountered in refining, petrochemical, chemical and fertilizer applications.
The StraightFlo™ SS is a drop-in replacement for OEM valves in reciprocating compressors operating at speeds from 200 to 3600+ rpm, pressure differentials up to 4,350 psi (300 bar), and service temperatures from -40° to 500°F (-40° to 260°C).
On-Site Service, No Need for Spares
The revolutionary springless design of the StraightFlo™ valve features interchangeable, enhanced reed valve modules held stationary between the valve seat and carrier. Unlike conventional ring, plate, or poppet designs, the sealing components in StraightFlo™ valves do not move or impact the metal housings.
Normal wear-and-tear is completely contained inside the modules. So housings never need machining.
In fact, StraightFlo™ valves are completely refurbished on site, in minutes, simply by replacing modules. There’s no need to send out valves for repair. And no need for expensive inventories of spare valve assemblies.
Increased Efficiency & Tolerance
Reed valve modules have a straight-through flow path. Since gas doesn’t travel a tortuous path, StraightFlo™ valves have the highest effective area for a given diameter.
The straight-through flow path also makes our valves self-cleaning and highly tolerant of liquids and solids. When the reeds are wide open, liquids and solids go right through the module without any impact on the critical sealing faces.
5x-35x longer service interval (2x guaranteed)
About 15 minutes, on-site, with no machining
2-15% lower compressor power / greater throughput
Up to 80% lower
Reduced emissions, fuel efficiency, 10x lower vibrations/noise levels
StraightFlo™ valves provide a wide range of benefits to support your net-zero initiatives.
