MANAMA, BAHRAIN (September 28, 2018) - From September 30 through October 3, Crane ChemPharma & Energy, a business of Crane Co., will present its comprehensive portfolio of corrosion management products at the Middle East Corrosion Conference & Exhibition, a bi-annual event hosted by NACE Dharan Saudi Arabia Section and the Bahrain Society of Engineers. Situated in the middle of the hall within the special Non-Metallic Pavilion (Stand #NMB 04), Crane will highlight its lined valve and pipe innovations, as well as its latest product introductions the XOMOX® XP3 Sleeved Plug Valve and Crane®FKX 9000 Triple Offset Valve.
"This will be our third time exhibiting at the MECC & Exhibition and over the years, we've discovered the value of having a presence here," said Ismael Jammaini, Project Leader - SAI, Crane ChemPharma & Energy. "Crane places a priority on innovation and our vast portfolio of products offers unique solutions for highly abrasive applications. We want to continue to spread awareness of those benefits here in the Middle East and this conference and exhibition offers that opportunity."
Designed to comply with API 641, the 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.
The unique features of the Crane®FKX 9000 offer an unparalleled fugitive emissions package. The thick metal-to-metal sealing provides a robust, long lasting seal. The innovative wide seat angle design, relying on a "self-releasing taper" principle, minimizes binding or galling of the seal-ring. The super fine surface finish, together with the "right-angle conical" design, facilitates an almost friction-less sealing. Combined, these features allow for a bi-directional, zero-leakage closure performance at unmatched cycle times, and work together to reduce potential downtime and the total cost of ownership, all while maximizing the safety of the valve operator. Originally designed according to ANSI standards and in sizes ranging from 3" to 24", this revolutionary product will now also be available according to DIN and ASTM standards in sizes ranging up to 48" in a single piece cast body.
