LEADING THE WAY IN VALVE FLUID TECHNOLOGY FOR NATURAL GAS FILLING STATION APPLICATIONS

natural gas filling station

CUSTOMER CHALLENGE

Requirements in these valves are high in regard to safety, sealing and function, as the natural gas is compressed up to a pressure of 300 bars in the filling station.  In addition there is, depending on the filling frequency at the station, an enormous number of switching cycles during the filling process.  With every cycle, pressure differences up to 200 bar have to be covered.

NORGREN SOLUTION

With more than 75 years of experience in the manufacturing of sophisticated solenoid valves, Norgren is ideally placed to offer expertise in the area of high pressure valve technology.

The highest production quality and the best materials, especially in long lasting seals, are standard in the Norgren high pressure valve range.  Furthermore complex component testing is applied to all.  Every single valve is tested at 350 bar and a static pressure of 525 bar before it is supplied.  The bursting pressure of these valves is above 1200 bar.  

All single valve components perfectly match each other to ensure a very high life time of the valves.  Due to the technical design and the high performance seals that are used, these solenoid valves seal very well to safeguard against leaks.  

A major attribute of the high pressure valves is that they have been designed in accordance to PED, the ATEX approval.  Additionally there are solenoid systems certified for the US market (FM approved) and the Canadian market (CSA approved) with ANSI / NEMA protection classes available. Due to a very compact design it is possible to manufacture 3-fold, 4-fold, 6-fold or up to very complex 11-fold solenoid valve manifolds with integrated filters and check valves.  

The manufacturer benefits from a solution that is extremely reliable and meets the demanding specification requirements of this market.
