TT Flow's Custom Actuated Butterfly Valves for Iraqi Oil Refinery

When a major Iraqi-based oil refinery required custom actuated butterfly valves for a large-scale plant refurbishment, T-T Flow’s expert product knowledge, access to quality manufacturing partners and extensive export experience made us the ideal choice to deliver a robust, reliable and fully compliant customised solution both on-time and within budget.

THE PROBLEM

During a major refurbishment project at a plant operated by South Refineries Company in Iraq, there was a requirement for custom actuated butterfly valves constructed of materials that needed to be fully traceable and certifiably of UK, EU or USA origin.

As the client specified non-standard materials, a completely customised valve build was required. To ensure full compliance, the valves underwent several independent third-party functional inspections and even the chemical analysis of components, along with the supply of extensive expert documentation including attested embassy origin certificates.

In addition to the non-standard materials, the client specified actuator connectivity to integrate with existing control panels and operating philosophy.

THE SOLUTION

T-T's expert product knowledge, access to quality manufacturing partners and extensive export experience made us the ideal choice to supply this actuated valve package within budget and on time. 

Supplied indirectly through an Iraqi-based specialist engineering company, we assembled and supplied 30 lugged centric butterfly valves to EN598, rated to 175psi with limit-set directly mounted non-modulating 230V/60Hz actuators.

To meet client specifications, the valves have a chemical resistant epoxy coated carbon steel body, acid resistant stainless steel (grade 1.4404 / SS316L) discs, EPDM liner, and are suitable for installation between ASME B16.5 Class 150 flanges.  

Versatile actuators were selected, offering quarter-turn reliability, weatherproof IP68 enclosure, feedback functionality and manual override. T-T identified proven partners that would ensure end-user acceptance and functional longevity.

T-T Flow were able to select, source, assemble, coordinate third party inspections, undertake comprehensive in-house hydrostatic and functional testing, and arrange global logistics, offering the end user full assurance. We also produced an instructional video detailing step-by-step actuator settings for trouble-free site commissioning.

T-T are experts in the design and manufacture of custom valves and associated ancillary equipment, utilising our expert product knowledge, manufacturing partners and extensive export experience to deliver solutions to even the most challenging projects. Our flexible approach allows the supply of just a single valve, a combination of stock products, or the ability to work with our clients to provide a complete engineered valve package, as was the case with this project.
