Pentair Valves & Controls has supplied its largest-ever bolted bonnet flanged wedge gate valves for an integrated petrochemical plant located in the Middle East, the company announced on Wednesday. 

Engineered and manufactured under the Fasani brand, the specialist carbon steel bodied valves measure 78 and 84 inches in diameter with ANSI class 150 pressure rating. 

Designed for wet flare line applications within the plant, the Pentair team worked closely with the project engineering and procurement contractor to design, manufacture, and test the customized valve solution. 

For this project, Pentair’s wedge gate valve design offered an improved fluid passage and optimized flow compared with other valve technology options, according to company officials.

Pentair’s production facility in Rescaldina, Italy, features one of the largest test benches in Europe with stringent and extensive testing for customized wedge gate valves of this size and capacity.

“These extraordinary Fasani valves are the largest cast wedge gate valves ever produced by Pentair and represent a substantial engineering accomplishment for our team,” said Trevor Shanks, vice president of gate, globe, check and control valves at Pentair Valves & Controls. “Delivering a highly customized solution of this magnitude to our customer in a short timeframe demonstrates our capability and expertise in leading the way in large size valve production.”

Pentair’s Fasani brand large size wedge gate valves are suited to challenging applications in the petrochemical and chemical processing industries. Pentair Valves & Controls also offers a range of high performance gate, globe and check valves in cast materials for large pipe sizes, noble alloy materials and cryogenic services to comply with various ASME and API requirements
