Valve manufacturer Thompson Valves has secured a major order for its Maxseal solenoid valves from the French EPC company Cegelec. An order for nearly 700 Maxseal solenoid valves has been received by Thompson Valves following Cegelec’s successful winning of a systems upgrade project from Bab and Asab. Maxseal was chosen to supply its hazardous area solenoids for use on the Bab and Asab fields in Abu Dhabi, UAE. The Maxseal solenoid valve with its class H-coil insulation and stainless steel coil housing provided as standard make the IC04 range suitable to the harsh conditions experienced in Adu Dhabi. The contract consists of both low power direct lift and pilot operated solenoid valves in three port, two position and five port, two position configurations.
