Leeds based YPS Valves has completed a major order to supply cryogenic valves to ExxonMobil in Singapore.

The valves have been designed in-house to exacting standards as leakage allowances are much tighter than normal for this type of valve. Testing has been carried out at -130 ˚C utilising liquid nitrogen and helium gas, with a typical acceptance leakage of 30ml per minute @ 132.5 Bar.

YPS Vales Managing Director, Rachel Wormald, says: ‘YPS has been supplying petrochemical plants, oil refineries, power generation plants and off-shore sites across the globe for over 40 years which means we have the knowledge and expertise to produce high integrity, high quality valves that stand the test of time under extreme conditions. All our castings are sourced from Europe and the USA to guarantee quality and durability.’

Rachel adds: ‘We have supplied many of the major end users including Shell, ExxonMobil, British Gas and Dow.’

YPS can manufacture cryogenic valves with integral bonnets or as is more commonly used by fabricating an extended bonnet from high quality tube with high levels of non-destructive testing (NDT).

All valves are produced in house utilising the latest Solidworks 3D, CAD software and finite element analysis.

Meanwhile, an in-house purpose built testing facility can perform cryogenic tests at temperatures as low as -196 ˚C. All valves can be supplied with modifications to make them suitable for services at this temperature. Cryogenic and emission test facilities are available with bellows sealing.

YPS Valves launched in 1974 and is now one of Europe’s leading designers and manufacturers of valves for the hydrocarbon processing, chemical, nuclear and offshore industries worldwide.
