OTC 2016: BuTech debuts new line of high-pressure relief valves

Offshore staff

HOUSTON – BuTech has introduced a new line of high-pressure relief valves at this year’s OTC.  

The new relief valves feature a repeatable release design that minimizes the need for frequent recalibration. The company says the design enables the valves to automatically reset after each pressure release, resulting in reduced maintenance and downtime, and lower whole-life cost. 

The new valves are designed to open proportionally, to increasing pressure ranging from 1,500 psig (103 bar) to 20,000 psig (1,378 bar), with temperatures ranging from -328°F (-200°C) to 400°F (204°C). 

Steve Learney, Haskel BuTech global product line manager, said: “When any high-pressure system spikes, our valves relieve the pressure and prevent damage to the system that could stop production or potentially harm employees and the environment.”

BuTech is exhibiting in booth #2765.
