Although good Industrial practices always demand the use of filtered, clean, air to ensure a longer life for the internals, often no consideration is given to environmental ingress into the valves.

We find that many valves are installed with limited to no protection on the exhaust ports and the solenoid operators.

When valves are open to the environment, there is a risk of ingress from the weather, airborne contamination, dust, sand, dirt, and insects. Over time this can shorten the life of the valve and impede the top performance you expect.

Ensuring Deepwater Drilling Tension Compensation System Reliability

Posted by Martin Sarginson on Jan 13, 2021 9:15:00 AM

Today, deep water drilling from floating platforms is largely the standard for offshore oil and gas operations. This means drilling operations are taking place in extremely difficult conditions and require highly reliable dynamic tension compensation systems to mitigate the motion caused by tides and rough seas.
