Global subsea engineering company Oceaneering International has released a new Topside Chemical Throttle Valve (T-CTV) for the oil and gas, wastewater treatment, chemical processing, medical and pharmaceutical industries that addresses operational requirements for topside chemical dosing.
The T-CTV offers a cost-effective and environmentally friendly solution for greenfield and brownfield projects and for unmanned and remotely operated applications across different industries, configured with optional Wi-Fi capabilities. The valve design features a full-flush position with an integrated mechanical scraper, which, explained a spokesperson from Oceaneering International ensures superior contamination tolerance and delivers long-term performance without the need for filters.
Oceaneering suggests that the accuracy of the valve translates to less chemical waste and boasts ± 0.2% of reading via continuous Coriolis flow measurement. Additionally, the T-CTV control system relies on live feedback from the Coriolis flow meter to automatically regulate and continuously display flow rates. With its unique helical flow path, the valve reportedly offers a controlled flow throughout the entire operating range while a programmable deadband further optimizes flow performance. The accuracy and reliability of the T-CTV will also, according to developers, cut operating expenses via lowered chemical costs and improved uptime.
