Reducing Valve Gas Leakages
Just cars, valves require periodic maintenance. Without maintenance they will eventually experience operating issues which can included leakage. Gas leakage is a safety issue, which can be reduced with good maintenance routines.
Often the lubrication fitting represents the weakest link in valve integrity. It is important that the lubrication nipple on a valve is not prone to leakage and is compatible with the lubrication equipment on the platform.
Tech Trade has worked closely together with the leading Norwegian operators and developed a range of high quality lubrication fittings which are suitable for gas service. All gas service lubrication fittings have at least two pressure retaining barriers and are leak tested in the factory. Hundreds of these fittings are installed on valves on Norwegian offshore platforms to provide easy access for maintenance and prevent gas leakages.
