LNG Users Maximize Space, Reduce Costs with New Pressure Relief Valves

End users can fulfill overpressure protection requirements with smaller valve


Emerson is helping LNG marine transportation customers to reduce their initial pressure relief valve investment at the shipyard by up to 25 percent, and total cost of ownership with its new Anderson Greenwood™ 9300H low pressure pilot operated pressure relief valves (POPRVs). The Anderson Greenwood 9300H patented design provides leak-free operation up to set pressure with an additional 10.5 percent flow capacity over valves currently available on the market. The additional capacity reduces the required size of the valve providing initial purchase savings, with additional savings on the associated piping, fittings and expansion elbows.


Designed specifically for marine LNG tanks on ships, floating production or storage units, the valve allows ship owners and operators to efficiently fulfill their critical overpressure protection requirements with smaller-sized valves and associated piping. The 9300H provides the superior performance and seat tightness of Anderson Greenwood POPRVs and utilizes the 52-year, field-proven Anderson Greenwood 93 Series pilot mounted flush to the valve providing a rugged, low profile ideal for rough seas. The valve is field-adjustable for either modulating action to reduce product loss during a relief event or snap action to open completely at set pressure. The 9300H valves can be easily equipped with valve monitoring technology and are certified for liquified gas carrier applications by all major classification societies, including Lloyd’s RegisterAmerican Bureau of ShippingBureau Veritas, and Det Norske Veritas.

According to Bloomberg New Energy Finance’s Global LNG Outlook, long-term global LNG demand is projected to “grow between 4-7 percent annually and a potential shortage can only be relieved by final investment decisions on new export projects in 2018-20.” 

“LNG continues to play an increasing role in global energy,” said Brett Bockeloh, product manager for pressure relief valves, Emerson Automation Solutions. “As the world pushes to keep pace with growing LNG demand, the need for innovative, reliable overpressure protection solutions has never been greater. The Anderson Greenwood 9300H’s combination of performance and reliability puts our customers in the best position to achieve their goals without the need to compromise on safety or their budget.”

New Emerson Knife Gate Valve Fills Market Gap for Mid-Service Mining Applications

New Clarkson SU10R knife gate valve for mid-service applications eliminates the compromise between light-service and heavy-duty valves with a high-performance, low-maintenance, bi-directional, abrasion-resistant design


Emerson has launched a new line of reliable, high-performance knife gate valves designed specifically to meet the needs of customers in challenging mid-service mining applications.


The new Clarkson SU10R polyurethane knife gate valve line is available in the United States and offers mining and mineral processing companies a solution to the abrasion and corrosion conditions that plague mid-service applications, while significantly increasing reliability and service life.


“Medium density slurry service has traditionally presented a challenge for the mineral processing industry. The choice is usually an economic light-service valve that will require frequent replacement or a heavy-duty valve that is expensive and over specified. The SU10R now fills that gap with a valve that offers superior service and easy servicing,” said Mike Gordon, global product manager for knife gate valves, Emerson Automation Solutions.


The two-piece body construction and field replaceable snap-in liner design provides more reliable sealing than competing products. An integral seat face seal eliminates the need for flange gaskets in many conventional flanged installations. This, along with an improved gland, will make the product particularly attractive to customers across the mining spectrum, from alumina to coal, copper, gold, silver and uranium.


The snap-in urethane liner design means that no special tools are required to replace the liner. “We have made every effort to make this design as maintenance friendly as possible, which speeds up the maintenance process and eliminates the potential for problems when the valve is installed or repaired,” said Gordon.


The Clarkson SU10R urethane valves offer a number of other advantages over conventional metal seated valves. In addition to delivering superior abrasion resistance, the inherent resilience of the polyurethane material ensures tight shut-off to MSS-SP-81 standards. The valves are also truly bi-directional.


The Clarkson SU10R valves will initially be available in sizes ranging from 50mm (2 inches) up to 600mm (24 inches) and operate at 10 bar (150 psi cwp) across the entire range at temperatures of up to 80°C (175°F).


Emerson is currently offering its new Clarkson SU10R valve for customers in the United States, with a rollout to other regions, including Latin America and Asia Pacific, at a later date.

Main burner valves from Emerson help improve reliability and reduce operational expense for oil and gas processors

The Fisher™ Type 119EZ and 119EZS main burner valves provide variable opening speeds for proper ignition in pneumatic and automated burner systems

Emerson Automation Solutions has released the Fisher Type 119EZ and 119EZS main burner valves for burner systems used in oil and gas production. The new 119 Series can help improve oil and gas burner performance, increase reliability and reduce capital and operational expense.

The 119EZ provides an adjustable opening speed for pneumatically controlled burners while the 119EZS incorporates a solenoid valve enabling it to be used with automated burner systems. The 119EZ and 119EZS are designed with a built-in speed controller allowing the unit’s opening speed to be tuned to meet the burner design. Tuning the opening speed of the main burner valve to match the burner design, helps ensure proper ignition of the main burner. The opening speed can be adjusted from 3 seconds for smaller burners to 12 seconds for larger burners.

The units are designed to close in less than 3 seconds and provide Class VI shutoff. The integrated speed controller reduces installation cost associated with using an external speed controller. The 119EZ and 119EZS are retrofitable to existing burner systems in the field.

The Fisher Type 119EZ and 119EZS are based on the compact, field-proven, and reliable Fisher Type 119 control valve platform. The new main burner valve shares the same internals (diaphragm, disk, orifice, and springs) as the Fisher Type 119, which has been used for more than 25 years on burners in the oil and gas industry.

“The design requirements of burner systems provided a great opportunity for the engineering team to develop new technology that improves the tuning process and helps simplify customer installation,” said Thomas Weyer, director of upstream business, regulator technologies, Emerson Automation Solutions. “By integrating an adjustable orifice to our valve we allow our customers to precisely tune the valve opening speed. Utilizing feedback from the field, we were able to optimize the performance to create a product that meets all of our customers’ needs.”
