Novel design boosts choke valve impact resistance

Severn Glocon Group’s advanced valve services division, Severn Unival, has developed an innovative ‘protective cage’ to enhance the impact resistance of choke valves.

Offshore oil and gas operators stand to benefit most from the solution which protects choke valves from the sudden impact of fluid-borne objects. When choke valves are damaged it can lead to major downstream safety concerns due to the increased risk of over-pressurisation.

Severn Unival’s protective cage – TrimGuard – has superior impact resistance and a high flow capacity. Independent tests conducted by a Norwegian operator showed it was capable of 700J impact resistance.
