Korean order for cryogenic control valves

UK control valve manufacturer Severn Glocon has won an order for control valve equipment from the state-owned Korea Gas Corporation. Severn Glocon’s latest order is for 70 of its specially designed Series 4000 cryogenic control valves which will be installed at a new LNG-receiving terminal being built at Tong-Yong on the coast of South Korea. The terminal is designed to handle up to six million tonnes of LNG a year, which will be stored, vaporised and transferred to the country’s pipeline distribution network at the facility. The Severn Glocon valves are being supplied in sizes from one to eight inches, pressure rated at ANSI Class 300 through 900. Most of the valves will control the LNG flow and pressure at temperatures as low as minus 168 C. For these critically important duties the valves undergo stringent quality assurance and testing procedures, including cryogenic testing at design pressure, for which Severn Glocon’s UK factory at Gloucester is comprehensively equipped. All the valves will be fitted with fail-safe pneumatic actuators and explosion-proof positioners for operation under remote, centralised computer control.
