Enduring reliability in critical processes

Our valves have been reliably used for decades in refineries, FCC plants or tank farms as well as ethylene plants.
The long-term reliability of our products is the most important feature when it comes to their use in refineries.
This is particularly the case as it is not only important to ensure reliable processes and protect the equipment; their foremost task is to protect people and the environment.

When it comes to their application in the processing of crude oil, our valves are often required to meet a demanding combination of requirements:they must be just as capable of dealing with high temperatures as they are with high pressures and erosion caused by extremely abrasive media. The protecting of a turbo expander, for example, is performed with the help of extremely fast closing and opening times in the range of tenths of a second. Our valves guarantee these
capabilities both enduringly and reliably.

During petrochemical processes, petroleum or natural gas are converted into petrochemicals. Typically, crude oil and natural gas liquids are cracked or distilled during the refining. The emerging products are olefins like ethylene, propylene, aromatics and benzene or toluene.

ADAMS has developed valves for petrochemical processes, which have been used for decades in refineries and ethylene plants. One of the features of our valves is the long-term reliability. This does not only relate to the securing of reliable processes and protection of the equipment but also to the ongoing protection of the environment. Our valves are developed to be completely tight even after years of operation and exposure to abrasive media.


Safety is an important factor in ethylene plants and the ADAMS valves meet the high degree of these safety requirements. We have developed our valves to operate reliable and safe under extreme conditions. One of the features of the ADAMS valves is a steam injection which prevents the build-up of coke on the seat of the seal. The seal of the valves is also protected from coke particles in the flow. Due to this additional feature, our valves have a longer life-cycle than other valves.

Valves developed for ethylene plants are the HTK, MAK and MAG. The shut-off, throttle and control valves HTK and MAK control the medium and are able to shut the lines off. This makes sure, that the processes work a they should. The MAG is a check valve and is used for protection of other equipment.
