Oliver Hydcovalves manufactures valves for hydrogen and carbon capture applications that support the Net Zero Emissions Targets of industrial users.
Innovation and manufacturing of high-precision quality valves have earned Oliver a global reputation as the market leader in Instrumentation, Transportation, Pipeline, and Subsea valves. Research and development are a fundamental part of the success and dedicated testing facilities in Knutsford, England, have enabled us to once again be an industry first to qualify the ball valve with hydrogen. The valve was designed and tested to Oliver Hydcovalves own qualification standard that incorporates the requirements of ISO 15848-1 and was then verified by a third party with hydrogen.
The future is now, change is constant and the company embraces new ideas and ways of operation. This is why the R&D engineering team is comprised of long-term employees that know the industry, supported by new generations of engineers through the apprenticeship programme and university graduates, who all share a common motivation: to be the best at what it does. Test facilities include a hyperbaric chamber that’s capable of testing valves to an equivalent water depth of 13,600 ft. designed for subsea applications such as carbon dioxide storage, enhanced well recovery, and subsea hydrogen storage.
Valves available for hydrogen application now include transportation valves qualified in three bore sizes to meet the requirements of ISO 19880-3 and pipeline valves that are metal-seated, endurance tested to over 400 cycles, and after which remain rated with zero leakage.
