Providing engineered control valve solutions to the Oil and Gas Industry has been a cornerstone of Mascot’s business for over 30 years. Our extensive knowledge and experience of Oil & Gas production and processing applications allows MASCOT engineers to select the correct valve for the end-users application. With a focus on maximising customer production and reducing overall plant operating costs, the design of our control valves provides the lowest MTBPM against our major competitors.
The two most common modes of control valve failures are passing and seizure or sticking. MASCOT GFLO control valve design eliminates these problems and hence enhances overall plant and process performance.
Passing and excessive seat leakage is caused by trim erosion & wearing (wire drawing) of the plug and seat and where pressure balanced trim designs are typically used. Mascot GFLO control valves with unbalanced trims provide exceptionally tight shutoff and this minimizes trim erosion and wear.
Seizing / sticking is caused by close tolerances in cage-guided trim. Mascot GFLO control valves utilize non cage guided trim designs and hence do not suffer problems with either galling or sticking.
