Flow Coefficient Kv Values At Disc Opening Positions


Flow data for Butterfly Vales is generally used within pipe work calculations for sizing and pressure losses when the valve is in the fully open position. When used as an On/Off Isolating valve the Disc will chiefly remain in the fully open position, therefore AVT have made the Disc design as efficient as possible, having high Kv values to reduce pressure drops, optimise plant efficiency and reduce energy costs. AVT Butterfly Valves may also be operated at intermediate opening position as a flow control and we have prepared the following table of Kv values for operating positions between the On/Off conditions. Maximum recommended flow velocities should take into account avoidance of cavitations, vibration, noise generation, etc. design factors can vary based on individual piping layouts, piping materials and medium carried. AVT advise maximum flow velocities should be in the range of 5m/sec for liquids and 50m/sec for gases. Kv flow coefficients are expressed in m3/h for water between 5 to 39 degrees centigrade at a pressure drop of 1 bar across the valve. Please check with AVT Technical Service Department for gaseous calculations.

Installing Advanced Valve Technologies Valves.


All valves are important pressure containing vessels and should be installed with care. If you are in any doubt as to the correct procedure please contact our local Distributor or our Technical Help line (see address above.)

General Valve flange faces should be kept clean at all times. Do not remove the valve from its netlon cover until immediately before installing it in line. In the case of lever operated valves, do not attach the lever until the valve has been correctly fastened. Before attaching the lever, check that the valve has been installed in the correct direction.
The pipe system into which the valve is to be installed must be fully supported in such a way as to ensure that the valve is isolated from any bending or other torque transmitted from the pipe.

Flanges Raised face flanges should not be used when Reinforced Epoxy or Vinyl Ester valves are to be
installed.

Gaskets Always use full-faced gaskets of an elastomer appropriate for the intended pressure and
temperature of the service and the gases or liquids expected to flow through the installation. The gaskets th should be 3 mm (1/8 inch) thick with a Shore A Durometer hardness of between 55 and 65. If in doubt as to the correct gasket specification to use please contact our local Distributor or our Technical Help line (see address above).

Installing the Valve Before commencing the installation ensure that the correct nuts, bolts, studs and
washers are present and within reach of the installation team. Having carefully lined the valve between the flanges so that the bolt holes in the flanges line up properly with the bolt holes in the valve, (do not use excessive force on either the gaskets or the valve to achieve the correct orientation) insert all the bolts/washers or studs into the bolt holes, ensure that washers in good condition are in position, attach nuts and finger tighten all of them. (Use a good quality lubricant on washers and threads) Increase the torque applied to the nuts as stated in the table below and continue to follow the sequence indicated in the diagram until all nuts reached the stated torque. DO NOT EXCEED THE STATED TORQUE.

Safe Operation of Valves Ensure that pumps are not operated against closed valves at all times. Valve
opening and closing must be carried out with caution as too fast operation may cause excessive line pressure to build up. Avoid closing or opening valves fully faster than 5 seconds. Ensure that the pin provided on lever operators fitted to Butterfly Valves are correctly seated at stop points and pushed fully home. BUTTERFLY VALVES MUST NOT BE LEFT IN PIPELINES WITHOUT HAVING CORRECTLY WORKING OPERATORS (levers, gear operators or actuators) FITTED

The information given in this notice is provided in good faith. However, proper care must be taken at all times to take into account actual conditions at the installation. When in doubt consult the plant designer. Advanced Valve Technologies Limited reserves the right to alter product specifications at any time without giving notice.

Chemical Resistance Guide


How to use the Chemical Resistance Guide

Advanced Valve Technologies (AVT) products are suitable for employment in harsh environments and applications listed up to the maximum recommended temperature. Although this information is believed to be accurate, it is intended as a guide only. AVT make no warranties, expressed or implied and assume no liability in connection with any use to which it is put. The Guide covers the main chemical resistance properties of the specially formulated materials used in AVTs products (AVT 510, AVT 520 & AVT 530). New formulations will be developed to meet the needs of particular applications. For applications not listed, please contact AVT or the local authorised distributor. The data is based on specific concentrations of chemicals at stated temperatures and has been extracted from several sources including, controlled laboratory tests, field experience and historical performance, chemical structure and suppliers data. It should be noted that media containing suspended solids and /or variations from the temperature, concentration or combinations of materials might offer synergistic effects to the detriment of the moulding. This guide has been developed to assist designers in the application and selection of corrosion resistance products manufactured by Advanced Valve Technologies Limited. The final determination of the suitability of any AVT product for the application under consideration is the sole responsibility of the customer or their advisors. Where, in the guide, no mention of any specific chemical or combination of chemicals is made or where the actual operating conditions of the application are near, at, or in excess of the indicated temperatures or concentrations stated, reference to the AVTs local authorised distributor or AVT itself is recommended. AVT 510 is a specially formulated anhydride cured, glass reinforced Epoxy Resin System with a good chemical resistance/temperature profile and excellent mechanical properties suitable for a wide range of applications in aggressive environments. AVT 520 is a specially formulated modified aromatic amine cured, glass reinforced Novolac Epoxy Resin System and has a similar chemical resistance profile to AVT 530 but with a generally higher temperature range. AVT 530 is a specially formulated modified aromatic amine cured, glass reinforced Epoxy Resin System with a wider chemical resistance profile than of AVT 510. AVT 530 is typically capable of operating at higher temperatures.

Introduction Non-metallic valves are of considerable interest in the oil and gas industry for use in water systems such as seawater, deluge, firewater and extinguisher plant. Such valves may provide a reliable and cost effective alternative to highly alloyed steel and lined steel valves. Epoxy materials are low in price systems, which exhibit long-term mechanical and chemical stability at temperatures associated with normal operation of such valves. Such materials may also be cast into complex shapes and machined to high tolerances. As a result, the marriage of Epoxy materials with Non-metallic Valve would appear to offer unique opportunities. Similar systems have been tested earlier, however the complex nature of the loading/offloading of stresses within the valves has not been adequately handled. This has led to early leakage, vein shear and housing cracks. It was thus the intention of the current work to address all of these areas in the form of one series of test. The test protocol was arrived at through discussions between Statoils materials technology section and Statoils valve technology discipline group. A 6 unidirectional Epoxy based butterfly valve was received from Advanced Valve Technologies Ltd. The valve had been modified relative to earlier versions of the valve in as much as the vein had been strengthened by lamination of a cross woven GRE mat on the low pressure side, and a revised touchdown profile of the spindle on the housing. The lamination of the GRE had been performed in order to increase the load capacity of the vein and to distribute loads more efficiently over the vein. The modified touchdown between the spindle and the housing (spindle recess) was performed in order to reduce the harmful effect of point loads. As will be seen in the conclusions section, Advanced Valve intend to incorporate a further improvement in future models by the in-lamination of a GRE ferrule on the inside of the spindle recess, in order to further reduce point loads and to improve the off loading over a closed vein. Experimental The test, performed using Statoils automated low pressure valve testing facility, comprised 2700 cycles with periodic valve and spindle leakage tests according to the following 1. 200 cycles dry 2. Hydrostatic leakage test (16 bar / 240 psi) closed vein 3. Hydrostatic body leakage test (24 bar / 360 psi) open vein 4. 500 cycles, 16 bar / 240 psi, hold time 3 minutes 5. Hydrostatic leakage test (16 bar / 240 psi) closed vein 6. 500 cycles (16 bar/ 240 psi ) hold time 3 minutes 7. Hydrostatic leakage test (16 bar / 240 psi) closed vein 8. Hydrostatic body leakage test (24 bar / 360 psi ) open vein 9. 500 cycles (16 bar / 240 psi ) hold time 3 minutes 10. Hydrostatic leakage test (16 bar / 240 psi) closed vein 11. 500 cycles (16 bar / 240 psi ) hold time 3 minutes 12. Hydrostatic leakage test (16 bar / 240 psi ) closed vein 13.

A schematic of the test facility is shown in Figure 1

Figure 1. Schematic of test facility. Computer coordinates opening of the test valve and the opening of the filling valve. The manifold is equipped with 15 and 25 bar safety valves to give the two test pressure levels

Data concerning number of operations, duration, opening time and pressure are logged to the control PC for each cycle. For each of the pressure cycles, the valve to the low-pressure blow off valve was checked to be open and the manifold pressure was adjusted to the desired pressure. The lower stop valve was checked to be open, the vein was checked as being closed and the inlet valve opened. After attaining the desired pressure inside the valve, the system was held for 3 minutes, the inlet valve closed and the vein rotated 900 and the valve drained. For the leakage tests, the pressure was held at 15 bar for 3 minutes and the rate of leakage over the vein was measured in terms of a volume pr. minute. For the housing tests, the lower drain valve was closed, the vein was opened and the valve to the low-pressure blow off valve closed. The inlet valve was opened and the pressure in the test valve adjusted to the desired level. Housing leakage was studied for a period of 5 minutes. At end of testing the valve was stripped down and inspected for wear and damage. Results and Discussion No sign of leakage was found with the current valve at any point during the testing. The valve operated smoothly and showed no tendency toward increasing opening torques. The rubber seal was inspected following 2700 operations and was found to be intact, in its groove and showed no sign of distress.

A typical pressure curve is shown in Figure 2. A rapid pressure rise gives an overpressure spike after ca. 15 seconds. This then dies down to the stable test pressure. The pressure is invariant during the hold time.

Conclusions The results of the test reported indicate that: The valve is suitable for use in water systems up to a pressure of 10 bar standard operating The valve does not show signs of wear following 2700 operations The valve is capable of withstanding a pressure of 24 bar on the body with the vein in the open position The vein is mechanically stable under the applied loadings The current test does not address three important factors, important for future applications, these being: Pyrotechnic aspects, jet flame testing, need for flame protection etc Fatigue effects behaviour of the valve over time in an environment where the valve is exposed to mechanical oscillations Mounting constraints requirement for parallelism of flanges, allowable out of line tolerances for mating flanges, need for mechanical support.

A schematic of the test facility is shown in Figure 1

Figure 1. Schematic of test facility. Computer coordinates opening of the test valve and the opening of the filling valve. The manifold is equipped with 15 and 25 bar safety valves to give the two test pressure levels Data concerning number of operations, duration, opening time and pressure are logged to the control PC for each cycle. For each of the pressure cycles, the valve to the low-pressure blow off valve was checked to be open and the manifold pressure was adjusted to the desired pressure. The lower stop valve was checked to be open; the ball was checked as being closed and the inlet valve opened. After attaining the desired pressure inside the valve, the system was held for 3 minutes, the inlet valve closed and the ball rotated 900 and the valve drained. For the leakage tests, the pressure was held at 15 bar for 3 minutes and the rate of leakage over the ball was measured in terms of a volume pr. minute. For the housing tests, the lower drain valve was closed, the ball was opened and the valve to the low-pressure blow off valve closed. The inlet valve was opened and the pressure in the test valve adjusted to the desired level. Housing leakage was studied for a period of 5 minutes. At ended testing the valve was stripped down and inspected for wear and damage. Results and Discussion No sign of leakage was found with the current valve at any point during the testing. The valve operated smoothly and showed no tendency toward increasing opening torques. The PTFE seat was inspected following 2700 operations and was found to be intact and showed no sign of distress.

A typical pressure curve is shown in Figure 2. A rapid pressure rise gives an overpressure spike after ca. 15 seconds. This then dies down to the stable test pressure. The pressure is invariant during the hold time.

Conclusions The results of the test reported indicate that: The valve is suitable for use in water systems up to a pressure of 10 bar standard operating The valve does not show signs of wear following 2700 operations The valve is capable of withstanding a pressure of 24 bar on the body with the ball in the open position The ball is mechanically stable under the applied loadings The current test does not address three important factors, important for future applications, these being: Pyrotechnic aspects, jet flame testing, need for flame protection etc Fatigue effects behaviour of the valve over time in an environment where the valve is exposed to mechanical oscillations Mounting constraints requirement for parallelism of flanges, allowable out of line tolerances for mating flanges, need for mechanical support.

Case History 001/002


Location:

HMS Invincible
Client:

Fleet Support/Royal Navy


Valve Series:

AVT 510 3 Ball Valves & Check Valves


Installation Date:

01/00

HMS Invincible is an Aircraft Carrier of the UK, Royal Navy. In November 1999 whilst HMS Invincible was under refit at H.M. Dockyard, Portsmouth, it was decided by Fleet Support that one of the sanitary sewage treatment plants on board would be re-piped because there had been excessive corrosion to the existing system. The metal pipe-work would be replaced with a glass fibre reinforced epoxy pipe system, as on other shipboard systems in Royal Navy frigates, this would be the first such refit carried out on a large warship of the Royal Navy. Pipex was awarded the contract by Fleet Support to replace the pipe-work on the ship. Pipex discussed the work with the engineering staff of HMS Invincible and Fleet Support. It was then discovered that the existing bronze valves, specified at the time of the ships construction, also needed frequent replacement. These valves were very heavy, making maintenance at sea an awkward task. With International Environment Standards in the treatment of effluent being more rigorous, corrosion problems with sewage treatment plants on ships has increased. Resulting from the discussions, a proposal was made by Pipex that Ball Valves were substituted with AVT moulded epoxy resin glass reinforced valves. AVT were also asked to provide suitable non-return check valves in the seaward side of the system. This was a new product requiring both design, tooling and manufacturing that would be suitable for the specification. Given the refit schedule for the ship, AVT had a limited window, from early December 1999 to the sailing date at the end of January 2000. The check valve was designed, approved and manufactured, inclusive of prototype testing, for shipment in good time for the products to be fitted into the system prior to the ship sailing. Subsequent to the refit, HMS Invincible was deployed and has been continuously at sea. AVT has been informed by the Engineering team on the ship that the system is functioning well.

Case History 001/003 Location: Spurn Point Humberside, UK Client: Associated British Ports Hull Valve Series:
AVT 510 3 Ball Valves ANSI 150

Installation Date: 01/00

The Client, Associated British Ports at Hull, has built a new Jetty facility at Spurn Point, Humberside. A Pilotage service is operated from Spurn Point by ABP using their new purpose built Pilot Launch Callisto. As part of the facility a new 3-inch fuel line was constructed from the road tanker off loading facility to the jetty head, to fuel Callisto and other ABP vessels. The fuel line and jetty head fuelling system was designed and built by Eastern Petroleum Supplies of Southminster, Essex, U.K. Due to the extremely exposed marine environment of the jetty, lying by the North Sea on the East Coast of the UK, Eastern Petroleum were concerned with the risk of salt water corrosion of the pipeline system and a decision was made to use an all fibreglass piping system. Eastern Petroleum selected and specified Ameron, Dualoy 3000/L filament wound glass, reinforced epoxy pipes and fittings for the jetty pipework due to its UL (Underwriters Laboratory) listings for petroleum service, light weight and excellent corrosion resistance. At the jetty head the 3 pipe terminates with a reduction to 11/2 flexible fuelling hoses. The system operates under a low pressure gravity head from the tanker fuelling point. Isolation and flow control at both ends of the pipeline on the jetty are controlled using two AVT 510 Ball valves. AVT valves were selected by Eastern Petroleum for their excellent internal and external corrosion resistance externally, suitability for the diesel fuel medium and light weight compared to their metallic equivalents, when installed on the jetty side. All metal fixings and valve stems on the AVT valves employ 316 stainless steel as standard. Connection to the mating Dualoy 3000/L pipework was by ANSI 150 lb flanges, one of the standard options provided by Advanced Valve Technologies.
