Bar Stock Fire-Safe Valves
Habonim redesigned a range of valves for a leading international pharmaceutical company to meet aesthetic and technical specifications. Habonim supplied over 200 actuated Fire-Safe 48T Bar Stock valves (with a special dome actuator), and 400 manual valves for solvents, gases and liquids. Both the valves and actuators were specially designed to match existing site specifications. The Bar Stock design was adopted to create a clean exterior finish.
Low Ferrite and Sulfur Valves
Habonim designed a range of 48T series valves with low ferrite and sulphur content to meet site specifications of a new contact lens manufacturing facility in Europe. Habonim supplied 200 manual and 80 actuated packages to the site for use in a clean steam application.
Habonim Dedicated Petrochemical Solutions
Oil field skid utilizes Habonim valves
A consortium of small oil field developers is employing a new technology to recover oil reserves previously deemed to be unrecoverable. Habonim valves were selected for this critical new project due to the quality and proven reliability of its specialty valves.
The engineers specified 316L for the entire ball valve assembly and Habonim recommended its TuBore 48 Series valves, with schedule 80 weld ends. To control the flow of oxygen and carbon Habonim V-Ball Control valves were selected and automated with Habonim’s actuators, as well as block valves using on/off electric actuators with battery packs.
New petrochemical installations in Poland choose Habonim’s MTM valves
Special sampling units for different media operating at temperatures of 300°C - 500°C were designed for Lurgi and Fluor by Ecozam, Habonim’s distributor in Poland. Habonim MTM valves made from special alloys were mounted in the insulated box.
Customized DBB Dual-Safe valves developed for ORL oil refineries
Habonim developed a Double Block and Bleed valve with total shutoff to ensure the safe flow of gas at ORL refineries in Israel. The Dual- Safe unit incorporates two main isolation valves and one bleed valve in a single body, effectively eliminating the danger of combustion.
LNG Dedicated Solution
Leading LNG safety
Working with REPSOL Spain, an internationally recognized leader in LNG production, Habonim developed a special double block and bleed (DBB) cryogenic valve to improve the company’s safety practices when transferring gases in liquid form at very low temperatures in the most severe applications.
Part of Habonim’s ‘Dual Safe’ series, the DBB cryogenic valve is employed at key stages of LNG processing with a focus on safety and efficiency. The DBB technology ensures that upon completion of specific processes, there is no pressure remaining in the body between the valves. The DBB valve contains a bleeding port to release pressure buildup in the body and a special indicator to show if there is any remaining pressure once a process is complete. Habonim’s DBB solution also features a single body construction, thereby reducing the number of body seals, and the potential for leakage, while at the same time saving space, and provid¬ing maximum safety at the most critical stages of LNG processing. Habonim’s DBB cryogenic valve can be operated manually or actuated.
Innovation for efficient LNG operations
In cooperation with Enric, a leading producer of LNG storage, transport, and processing equipment, Habonim developed a solution that addresses the company’s operational efficiency. Instead of the four units in their previous LNG transportation equipment, Habonim developed the Enric Valve Commutator which effectively condensed the old system into one unit. The result was operational improvements in a number of key areas:
- Eliminated 95% of required piping
- Reduced costs – lower equipment costs and simplified maintenance
- Reduced space – system consolidated into one unit
- Improved safety – less piping and sealing rings minimize the leakage path
- Flexible ‘plug and play’ system – allows for quick and easy expansion
- Reduced energy usage
Innovation for Enhanced Isolation
EKA Chemicals (Akzo Nobel) required an enhanced Double Block & Bleed solution for its Chromasil production. The media used in the process were: ethanol, industrial water, nitrogen, stabilizer solution, desalinated water & acetone. The design required two of each component (including actuators and valves), making the standard DBB too costly, heavy and space-consuming, while creating many possible sources of leakage.
Habonim’s innovative Dual-Safe™ DBB offered the customer a compact, tailor-made package, operated by a single actuator, which increased safety and strict isolation as well as meeting the need for cost and space savings.
Cost Effective Flow Control Solution
In a headbox profile of a dewatering machine designed by Andritz AG in Graz, the main requirement was for a large number of control valves to be fitted in a limited space application. The demand for a flow rate of “5.000 - 12.000 l/min”, for 54 valves in one machine had to be maintained. Habonim’s engineered solution offered the customer a hand-operated control valve, using V- Port 60 with oval hand wheels and position indicators to allow precise control of media flow.
