Dubai, United Arab Emirates (October 26, 2010) – CRANE Flow Solutions™ (Stand #07040A), a leading global provider of highly engineered fluid handling solutions worldwide, is pleased to announce the nomination of its Krombach® Double Eccentric Butterfly Valve for the Best Innovation or Technology Award at the ADIPEC 2010 Excellence in Energy Awards. Used in fire-extinguishing applications, CRANE Flow Solutions’ red-coated, Krombach® Double Eccentric Butterfly Valve was nominated because of its quality standards and customized design.
Featuring a diameter of 50 to 900 millimeters, Nitrile seats and a hard rubber-lined cast body that prevents corrosion from salt water, our Krombach® Double Eccentric Butterfly Valve was commissioned for use in a high profile, crude-oil pipeline project in Abu Dhabi where a fire-extinguishing system using seawater was imperative to the completion and success of the project. Additionally, this product features the ability to maintain the necessary water pressure over long distances in the event that a fire breaks out.
“While the features and benefits of the Krombach Double Eccentric Butterfly Valve demonstrate the high quality standards customers have come to expect from CRANE Flow Solutions, the internal, global response that led to the extraordinary On-Time Delivery performance for this project is award-worthy in itself,” said Juergen Kern, Director of Sales, Europe, Middle East & Africa of CRANE Flow Solutions. “This project was a great example of how synergies within a global organization like Crane, can be utilized to meet today’s demand for the completion of large size projects on time.”
Finalists for the awards will be selected prior to the start of ADIPEC and the winners will be announced at a ceremony on November 2 at the Fairmont Bab Al Bahr. Other award categories include Project of the Year, HSE Project or Initiative of the Year, CSR Initiative of the Year, Finance Deal of the Year, Best Future Leadership.
