Industrial gases such as Oxygen, Nitrogen and Argon are either extracted from air using process of Separation or Chemical Synthesis. Within the separation, gases are extracted using a process known as cryogenics. Industrial Gas Processing Plants are typically large and costly and hence the correct control valves must be used to ensure overall plant optimum performance, safety and reliability.
Class VI shutoff is typically specified for control valves used within (ambient temperature) gas applications. In this case it is important to ensure the design of the control intended to be applied is suitable for “repeatable” Class VI shutoff.
Also, special materials are a feature of the Industrial Gas Industry, particularly when using control valves on Oxygen Applications. The use of Al. Bronze and Monel materials is typically a feature of control valves used in oxygen applications.
Mascot has provided Engineered Control valve solutions to the Industrial Gas Industry for over 30 years. Our extensive knowledge and experience of Industrial Gas production and processing applications allows Mascot Engineers to select the correct valve for these demanding applications. With a focus on maximising Customer’s production and reducing overall plant operating costs, the design of Mascot control valves provides the lowest MTBPM against of our major competitors and hence are ideally suited to this industry.
Common application requirements within the Industrial Gas industry include precise and accurate flow control, cryogenic conditions, noise attenuation capabilities in applications where high noise levels are apparent, and reliability of operation. MASCOT Control valve design specifically deals with these exacting process requirements, effectively enhancing overall Plant and Process performance.
