Shaanxi Yanchang ChinaCoal Yulin Selects Metso High-performance Valves for Jingbian Energy and Chemical Project
44 Bowditch Drive, P.O. Box 8044
Shrewsbury, MA, 01545-8044
Press release date: January 30, 2013
Metso has been selected as a primary supplier of ball and butterfly valves to Shaanxi Yanchang ChinaCoal Yulin Energy & Chemical Co., Ltd (Shaanxi Yanchang ChinaCoal). To ensure successful start up, Metso will deploy a technical service team on-site to assist with installation and training. This project has been listed as a UN Project Promoting Clean Coal Technology and a Model Project for Recycling Economy in Shaanxi Province. The goal of the project is to fully utilize the abundant resources, including oil, gas, coal and salt, found in Jingbian region to realize its economic transformation. Metso delivery will be completed before March 2013.
Metso ball and butterfly valves have long enjoyed a good reputation in the Chinese market and rank among the top brands. Users recognize Metso as a producer of highly reliable and cost-effective valves solutions. Metso has continually gained market acceptance in China based on superior high-performance products, comprehensive technical support, and efficient professional services. Metso is also a leader in valve technologies that substantially improve plant safety and reduce emissions, which are growing concerns throughout the global manufacturing community.
Metso will deliver 300 on-off ball valves and control butterfly valves for low and high density polyethylene (LDPE and HDPE), stage 1 and 2 polypropylene (PP) and catalytic cracking (CC) installations, including PDS (Product Discharge System) valves for LDPE.
The Metso products to be delivered range in size from 1/2" to 18" soft and metal seated valves. Soft seated valves are used in stage 1 and 2 PP. Due to high temperatures and heavy wear conditions, metal seated valves with HVOF (High Velocity Oxygen Fuel) coatings will be used in the HDPE, LDPE, and 1.5 million ton PA deep catalytic cracking (DCC) applications.
Of particular interest are the 33 PDS Valves to be supplied to the LDPE installations. Soft-seated PDS valves are considered to be a weak link in processes seeking to improve output by using high-productivity catalyst. Metso's experience and valve selection knowledge in PDS application provide a competitive edge to chemical companies seeking to improve output for processes using high-productivity catalyst with superior metal seated PDS valves.
Shaanxi Yanchang ChinaCoal administers the Jingbian Energy and Chemical Integrated Utilization project, a key development effort for Shaanxi Province Initial stages of the project will focus on processing a combination of coal, oil-field gas and refinery dry gas to produce methanol, and olefin cracked from residual oils. In later stages the focus will shift to the development of downstream olefin industries and ultimately the creation of an industrial chemical base.
