Crane ChemPharma & Energy, a Crane Co. business, today announced that it will launch three new products at this year’s Valve World Americas Expo & Conference, June 20-21 in Houston, TX (Booth #609).
Spanning multiple applications, Crane’s latest product innovations include the Xomox® XP3 Sleeved Plug Valve,
the Krombach® KFO Metal Seated Ball Valve, and the new API-624 compliant Pacific® Cast Steel Valve line. In addition to being displayed in Crane’s booth, each of these new products will be presented during Valve World’s Speaker’s Corner series, held and located in the heart of the Expo floor. Crane will also present its newly acquired business, Westlock Controls Corporation, and accompanying new product, the Digital EPIC-2 intelligent valve position transmitter, during an in-booth event on June 20 at 1:00 PM local time (Booth #609).
“Crane has always been dedicated to innovation and presenting technologies that benefit our customers and are capable of revolutionizing the industry. Thus, we couldn’t be more pleased with the new products we are introducing at this year’s Valve World Americas Expo,” said Juergen Sonderschaefer, Senior Vice President, Sales & Marketing, Crane ChemPharma & Energy. “The introduction of such game-changing products like the Xomox® XP3, for example, not only enhance our portfolio, but they add value for our customers, lowering the cost of ownership and improving upon the way they do business.”
XOMOX® XP3 Sleeved Plug Valve
Designed to comply with API 641, the new XOMOX® XP3 provides the best in class fugitive emissions sealing of any plug valve currently on the market. It is the first sleeved plug valve capable of passing five thermal cycles without any packing adjustments, in accordance with ISO 15848-1 BH CO3 SSO. Available for use in U.S. chemical and refining markets, this
valve features a live loaded design that optimizes seal performance, ensuring the seal integrity to atmosphere. Virtually maintenance- and cavity-free, the XOMOX® XP3 requires no costly lubrication and prevents accumulation or contamination of process media, reducing maintenance costs and the cost of ownership over time.
Krombach® KFO 9136 Metal Seated Ball Valve
The new Krombach® KFO 9136 is an extreme temperature and wear-resistant metal seated ball valve capable for use in coal gasification, refining and power applications. Featuring a uni-directional single seat, the Krombach® KFO permits a tight shut-off, ensuring cavity-free performance. Its optimized energizing seat with low friction bearing design enables a
permanent seat/ball contact under recurrent thermal cycling and offers a lower cost of ownership through the reduction in operating torque by over 20%. With a temperature range of -29°F to 500°F (and special temperature ranges up to 700°F and 1300°F upon request), the Krombach® KFO also features superior fugitive emissions control as a result of its robust
stem seal design.
API-624 Compliant Pacific® CSV Gate, Globe & Check Valves
Designed in accordance with the industry's latest standards, specifically API-624, the new Pacific®CSV line of cast steel gate, globe and check valves provides the highest level of quality and performance in demanding applications. Each of the valves in the Pacific®CSV product line has undergone improvements to offer new features that enhance reliability and
O&M. The gate valve's fully-guided wedge ensures smooth operation in both horizontal and vertical orientations, delivering improved resistance to sticking. The globe valve features a uniquely-designed line contact between disc and seat that enables lower seating torque and faster set up. The swing check valve’s fastener is restrained by the bonnet to eliminate the risk of a displaced disc and prevent damage to downstream equipment.
In addition to these new product launches, Crane will also display its recently introduced Crane®FKX 9000 Triple Offset Valve that delivers 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.
