Aug 08, 2014

Pentair Valves & Controls supplied its largest ever, bolted bonnet flanged wedge gate valves for an integrated petrochemical plant located in the Middle East. Engineered and manufactured under the Fasani brand, the specialist carbon steel bodied valves measure 78 and 84 inches in diameter with ANSI class 150 pressure rating.

The Pentair team worked closely with the project engineering and procurement contractor to design, manufacture, and test the customized valve solution, designed for wet flare line applications within the plant. Pentair’s wedge gate valve design offered an improved fluid passage and optimized flow compared with other valve technology options.  Pentair’s production facility in Rescaldina, Italy, features one of the largest test benches in Europe with stringent and extensive testing for customized wedge gate valves of this size and capacity.

Pentair’s Fasani brand large size wedge gate valves are ideally suited to challenging applications in the petrochemical and chemical processing industries. Pentair Valves & Controls also offers an extensive range of high performance gate, globe and check valves in cast materials for large pipe sizes, noble alloy materials and cryogenic services to comply with various ASME and API requirements.
