Cook Compression wins multi-year valve service contract

Cook Compression®, part of Dover Precision Components and Dover (DOV), has been awarded a multi-year contract by ISAB S.r.l, a part of Lukoil Oil Company, to provide technical support, reconditioning and upgrades for reciprocating compressor valves and actuators. The contract encompasses support for 27 reciprocating compressors in the ISAB Sud and Nord refinery sites in Syracuse, Italy, on the island of Sicily.

To support the rapid reconditioning requirements of the contract, and to offer similar services to other refineries in the region, Cook Compression has opened a satellite service facility in Sicily.

With rigorous inspection and best-in-class procedures and quality replacement components, the Cook valve reconditioning process returns valves to original specifications and as-new performance. Cook Compression also has the application knowledge and technical expertise to recommend valve upgrades for improved reliability and efficiency. Highly qualified in-house engineering teams optimize valves for the end user’s specific operating conditions, applying a range of proven designs. From the creation of the original radiused-disc Manley® valve to the extreme reliability of the patented MOPPET® valve, Cook has pioneered developments in valve designs and materials that yield meaningful improvements in performance.

The Sicily service facility successfully passed its ISAB audit this past spring, and in May, Cook Compression celebrated the grand opening with key customer contacts. The facility has room to expand its capabilities in support of the region’s compressor service, repair and upgrade needs.
