Vector’s attendance to EGYPS 2020

Vector Valves will be present again at the EGYPS exhibition, the largest OIL & Gas Exhibition in Egypt, that will take in Cairo from 11 to 13 February.

You can visit us at Stand 3G75 in Hall 3 where we will be pleased to welcome you and show you all our products and capabilities.

New Vector supply

Vector Valves has successfully completed the manufacture and supply of 24 ”and 28” 600 # ball valves and 24 ”-600 # gate valves operated with hydraulic actuators to Peru.

This supply has been a great logistical challenge due to the large dimensions of the valves, with heights greater than 5 meters.

With the delivery of these valves, the first phase of the project has been completed, leaving a second phase that is currently in the process of being tested.

Fugitive Emission Test

Vector Valves has finished the tests in our high performance ball valves with extended shaft and metal-to-metal seat that will be used in LPG service.

In addition to the usual tests (hydrostatic, leakage, dimensional tests, etc…) performed on all our valves, on this occasion additional tests of fugitive emissions have been carried out according to the ASTM E499 standard.

Control valve spare parts supply

Continuing with our commitment to provide an integral service to our customers, Vector has supplied the necessary spare parts for the maintenance and proper performance of high pressure cryogenic control valves (rating 2500#) supplied to YPFB Bolivia.

The supply consists of gaskets and packing sets and sealing kit and springs for the diaphragm actuators that operate the valves.

New test bench

VECTOR VALVES has recently added a new test bench to its general equipment.

It is an automatic vertical bench with 3 stations for simultaneous pressure tests, renowned Italian brand PROGETTI.

This investment has a direct effect on the improvement of the service to our clients due to the optimization of the test times and the consequent reduction of the delivery times of our projects.

Petroleum Pipeline Company

VECTOR VALVES has completed the supply of several types of valves for PPC (Petroleum Pipeline Company) in Egypt.

This time the scope os supply consists of a package of piggable ball valves, with valves size from 6″ to 12″ and 600# rating, and another package of piggable check valves with external arm and counter weight, sizes 10″-12″ and 600# rating.

As always, all valves were subjected to the strictest quality controls with highly satisfactory results.

Maintenance in Turkey

Last March a team of Vector valves travelled to Turkey to carry out supervision and technical support task during the Maintenance woks carried out at the Izmit Refinery by Tupras.

The assistance lasted for a period o 2 weeks in which the collaboration with the personnel of the refinery was total, achieving the strt-up of the equipment (which works under very critical service conditions due to its high temperature) in record time.

Manufacturing of Control Globe valves for UK

VECTOR VALVES has finished with success the design, elaboration and supply of 27 control valves for the project called TEES REP BIOMASS which is setting up in Middlesbrough (UK).

The control valves of sizes DN25 and DN40 and high pressure (PN 40, PN 150, PN420) have been entirely custom designed according to European standards. The internals are made of hardened stainless steel and protected to minimize the flashing effect. Several of the valves have an extended cover with integral fins to dissipate the temperature. These valves are operated by an electric actuator.

All valves have been designed and tested to the strictest European quality standards.
