HOUSTON, TX (USA) May 30, 2019 – Crane ChemPharma & Energy, a Crane Co. business, announces their participation in the 2019 Valve World Americas Expo & Conference, June 19-20 in Houston, Texas (Booth #511, George & Brown Convention Center). A wide range of products with diverse applications will be featured, with four white papers to be presented as well.

Crane®FKX 9000 Triple Offset Valves

The Crane®FKX 9000 Triple Offset Valves valve design is recommended for industrial applications where large bore valves handle hot steam or isolate parts of their plants and have high/low temperatures that prevent the use of rubber lining elements.

Compared to ball valves, the Crane®FKX 9000 Triple Offset Valves is an affordable solution that requires less structural support to ensure bubble tight shut-off. The result is a virtual zero leak rate even in high-pressure, high-temperature applications. Due to their quarter-turn movement for opening and closing, the valves are easy to automate and they can fulfill a quick closing time, which is often required in safety applications.

XOMOX® XP3 Sleeved Plug Valves

XOMOX® is a world leader in manufacturing Sleeved Plug Valves that continues to strive for best in class solutions to our customers. Following the strategy from Crane CPE, XOMOX® is engaging in actions to further expand its portfolio to meet the most stringent emissions standards.
