Emerson has revealed the Daniel™ V707 back pressure control valve, which comes with an adjustable spring that does not require diaphragms or pilots, making it ideal for the crude oil trade – especially for Lease Automatic Custody Transfer (LACT) skids.
Backpressure valves at the moment available in the market use rubber diaphragms which are vulnerable to wear, failure and leakage, and have pressure limits to operation. Various technologies such as gas loaded valves require the shopper to maintain a nitrogen control system. In each case, operators are required to integrate a second valve on the LACT skid as a check level. The new Daniel valve consists of an integrated check valve for two in a single functionality.
The V707 relies on the trusted Daniel 700 Series valve device, which includes a metal to metal seat and guarded O-rings to deal with harsh crude oil conditions. While users should cease operations to maintain and replace diaphragm valves, the V707 will guarantee minimal maintenance. Moreover, the price of ownership of the brand new Daniel again pressure valve will sometimes be half of an equivalent diaphragm valve for the first three years given the reduction in service hours, and related maintenance needed.
“The V707 is made to alleviate operational costs by minimizing maintenance and is designed to improve security by lowering the risk of spills, which minimizes environmental risks and exposure to an official,” stated Mark Pinheiro, product line supervisor of Daniel liquid control valves at Emerson.
“Our goal with the V707 is to offer our customers greater confidence that their services can operate reliably, safely, and within compliance rules with lower downtime or pointless costs,” he added.
