ValvTechnologies’ Nuclear Industry Director Bill Henwood to Co-present
at International Nuclear Utilities Obsolescence Group Event

HOUSTON, TX, May 2018 – ValvTechnologies, Inc., the global leader in the design and manufacturing of zero-leakage high-performance isolation valve solutions, is proud to announce its Nuclear Industry Director, Bill Henwood, will be a featured co-presenter at the 2018 International Nuclear Utilities Obsolescence Group (INUOG) Annual Meeting.

The two-day event focusing on obsolescence management takes place on June 26-27 at the International Atomic Energy Agency headquarters in Vienna, Austria. An assembly of international equipment reliability managers, procurement engineers and concerned industry leaders will share their expertise on key topics ranging from nuclear utility projects to the development of obsolescence programs and solutions implemented.

Henwood and Adrian Swift, Procurement Engineering Support at EDF UK, will co-lead a session focused on application obsolescence in nuclear power plants. They will present a case study focusing on the ongoing efforts at Sizewell B Nuclear Power Station to replace linear valve technology with quarter-turn isolation technology, equaling $1.4M (£/€) in valve purchases to date and culminating in the recovery of over $11M (£/€) in operating income for 2017 alone. (Projected to be $11M)

“Attendees will see that the payback for the replacement program is as little as eight weeks with a comparative minimal investment in quarter-turn isolation valves,” said Henwood. “Members of the nuclear community will gain insight into how they can effectively implement a similar program resulting in megawatt recovery, vastly improved safety of plant personnel, the elimination of costly spare parts, valves, maintenance and warranty claims.”

“There are a multitude of stem sealing solutions utilized throughout severe service, flow control applications. This article will explore various stem sealing solutions and the reasons one might choose them. We will dive further into the intricacies of typical severe service applications, high-cycle severe service applications and what happens when a valve must become fastacting. We also explore limitations of a common fugitive emissions specification (ISO 15848) and how ValvTechnologies has addressed these in the development of the EcoPack® fugitive emissions system for severe service applications. But, before we get there, we must first discuss the difference in quarter turn and rising stem valves.”

ValvTechnologies Renews their American Petroleum Institutes’ Q1 Certification

Posted: Monday, April 17th, 2017 By: Linda Goodrich

HOUSTON, TX – ValvTechnologies, Inc., the global leader in the design and manufacturing of zero-leakage severe service isolation valve solutions, has successfully renewed its American Petroleum Institute’s (API) Q1 certification. ValvTechnologies has held the API Q1 certification since 2001, making it seventh oldest Q1 certificate awarded worldwide.

ValvTechnologies is one of the only manufacturers in the severe service industry that goes through the arduous process of earning the API Q1 certification year after year: most others only secure their  API product license, a significantly easier process  to pass since it  reviews  their quality program only  once every third year. ValvTechnologies, however, is committed to providing the oil and gas industry the highest quality severe service isolation valves available and therefore is audited every year to earn the highly-coveted API Q1 certification.

To become API Q1 certified, ValvTechnologies underwent an evaluation process that included the submission and review of their quality manual and host an on-site audit conducted by the API. The quality manual must meet each item outlined in the API standard. To maintain API Q1 certification, annual audits must be conducted to ensure continued conformance to the API standard.

“ValvTechnologies recently audited a small machining supplier with less than 20 employees, said Todd Blackburn, Director, Global Quality Management. “The owner emphatically stated the reason he is still in business during the recent downturn was he maintained his API Q1 certification: based on the results of our audit I believe this is a true statement,” Blackburn continued. “My recommendation is for our customers to evaluate the robustness of ValvTechnologies’ quality program against our competition when searching for their severe service valve solutions.”

The America Petroleum Institute (API) is the only national trade association that represents all aspects of America’s oil and natural gas industry. Our more than 625 corporate members, from the largest major oil company to the smallest of independents, come from all segments of the industry. They are producers, refiners, suppliers, marketers, pipeline operators and marine transporters, as well as service and supply companies that support all segments of the industry.
