Ball valve used in Thermal piping systems Thailand


 Valves & Controls has successfully provided maintenance support under its specialist service brand, SABO, for a valve repair project at one of the largest gas storage facilities in Europe. After experiencing leakage of ball valves in the facility, the customer turned to  to discover the reason for the loss of seal tightness and provide maintenance to solve the issue within a short timescale.


A chosen partner based on the team’s expert capabilities in this area,  exceeded expectations and completed the job almost two weeks ahead of schedule. This minimised downtime and loss of production for the 17 billion cubic meter gas storage facility. On examination of the critical ball valve,  discovered corrosion of the seat and inner valve body, and identified that the seat required reworking and a hard-facing. By promptly determining the root of the problem, providing a mirror polished surface to the ball and adjusting the clearance with new o-rings,  delivered a successful outcome. This fast service completion also led to the early start of the pipeline testing procedure, which in turn allowed for early restart of the full pipeline. 

The 30 inch / 750 CL 600 ball valves were located between the depleted gas reservoir used as storage 2,500m underground at the facility, and the pipeline system. Featuring an actuator with a high integrity pressure protection system (HIPPS) function, the valves isolate the high pressure gas storage from the pipeline system. It was paramount that  delivered a successful and rapid outcome in order for the customer to fulfil their critical requirement of injecting gas into storage tanks by a fixed deadline. 

The repair project posed a number of challenges for  to manage, including handling due to the weight of the valves of more than 15 tons when assembled with the actuator. The extremely hard surface of the outer valve body also proved problematic. To overcome this, the previous coating, a two component polyurethane specific to offshore pipelines, was removed and grid blasted, which required special cast steel splitters - a unique capability for valves of this size. The  team worked continuously to complete the mirror polishing of the valve ball, which helped to ensure the early completion of the valve service.



Rubber Expansion Joint

Rubber expansion joint is widely used in the field of chemical industry, construction, supply water, sewage drainage, petroleum, light and heavy industry, sanitation, plumbing, electricity and other fundamental engineering.

Dismantling Joint

Dismantling Joints are used to connect Flange on the one side and weld pipe on the other,modulate the product's length in between

Duckbill Check Valve

Duckbill check valve is a simple, reliable, cost effective method of backflow prevention. The series flange integral duckbill check valve is designed to be installed between two mating flanges.

Expansion Bellows Compensator

Metal bellows expansion joints (also called Metal Expansion Joint) are compensating elements for thermal expansion and relative movement in pipelines, containers and machines.


Valve is not only own with the functions of opening quickly, easy to maintain, good sealing but also safety fire-safe and Antistatic designs.

Shock Absorber

Shock absorber is adopted in ductile iron, which improves the plasticity and toughness of the product, and the strength of the steel is higher than that of the carbon steel
