Valves for every situation in refineries
Refineries break down crude oil into its various different components, which are then selectively reconfigured into new products. They are doing this by heating the oil up in a distillation column at Atmospheric Pressure. For the heavier fractions, vacuum distillation is used in order to lower the temperature at which the heavier fractions can be separated without thermal decomposition. These are already critical conditions that need to be handled by reliable valves.
Extreme safety regulations and measurements make the construction or renewal of refineries even harder. However, the high risks of environmental pollution and damages make these regulations necessary. It is not surprising that standardized valves cannot meet these requirements.
This is where ADAMS comes in. We have collected decades of experience and gathered knowledge in critical applications and especially refineries. Our valves are especially designed to withstand extreme temperatures and pressures, to protect the piping and equipment and to minimise risks completely.
