Industrial gases such as oxygen, argon, and nitrogen are extracted from air using either a process of separation or chemical synthesis. In air separation plants, cryogenics are used to separate and extract gases at temperatures as low as -196C / -384F. These plants are extraordinarily capital-intensive, and as such operating efficiency, optimal performance, on-spec product, and safety are the foremost objectives in their design and maintenance.
As these plant objectives relate to valve applications, proper sizing & selection, precise control, tight shutoff, repeatability, reliability, and material selection become a priority. Trimteck engineers and manufactures cryogenic versions of its OpGL Globe Control, OpTB Trunnion Mounted V-Notch Ball, and OpTE Triple Eccentric Butterfly valves in Aluminum, Aluminum Bronze, and Monel – all offering ANSI Class VI bubble tight shutoff.
Trimteck routinely designs and manufactures specialty control valves for the most challenging applications in the industry – ranging from fabricated high pressure cryogenic valves for liquid oxygen service in rocket engine test stands, to corrosion-resistant metal bellows seal valves for lethal chemical service at decommissioning plants.
We build a comprehensive line of control valves – and variety of actuators, positioners, severe service trims, and other accessories – that our applications engineers and representatives use to solve even the most complex process control problems quickly and economically.
