CUSTOMER CHALLENGE

Gas to liquids (GTL) is a refinery process to convert natural gas or other gaseous hydrocarbons into longer-chain hydrocarbons such as gasoline or diesel fuel.

Solenoid valves are used for the control of all pneumatically operated valves in a GTL plant.  Due to the environment on this plant in Qatar, high resistant, explosion proof products are requested for the highest safety levels.

NORGREN SOLUTION

The 24011 and 980175 series valves both offer the level of reliability, quality, temperature suitability and certification that met the needs of this application exactly.

A redundancy panel was also produced incorporating the use of pilot operated solenoids to control a 5/2 safety valve with dual piloting to operate under simultaneous commands. This panel was designed to ensure that the large size actuators can operate as required with rotary valves in the petrochemical industry.
