The Dresser-Rand business, part of Siemens Power and Gas Division, received an order from BP to provide rotating equipment for the Mad Dog 2 project in the deepwater Gulf of Mexico. The scope of supply comprises two DATUM compressor trains driven by Siemens electric motors for export gas service. The equipment is scheduled to ship in 2018, with oil production of the platform expected to begin late in 2021.
Dresser Masoneilan recently announced the launch of their next generation ValScope-PRO, a diagnostic tool for control valves with both conventional and digital positioners. The ValScope-PRO helps customers identify problems by providing a scientific evaluation of valves in operation. The tool is portable, enabling users to troubleshoot valves – in-line and in harsh environments – to determine which valves need to be removed. A graphic interface allows users to view the valve as it is being tested and provides real-time analysis. The ValScope-PRO is compatible with analog, Fieldbus and HART communication protocols.
Dresser Masoneilan helps customers meet strict environmental emissions standards with the Camflex II rotary globe valve. Featuring a specially-developed Emissions Free (EF) Seal and many other innovative design characteristics, the Camflex II valve reduces equipment emissions that can occur at the valve shaft sealing, or packing, particularly after long-term operation. In control valve construction, a delicate balance must be maintained between a tight seal that prevents potentially hazardous emissions and excessive friction between the seal and the valve stem. High friction can affect a valve’s ability to provide the desired control accuracy which can pose a costly hazard. It can also wear the packing material over time causing leakage and increasing maintenance costs and down-time.
The new 275GL Series engines combines the robust construction and reliable operation of Waukesha’s ATGL Series with design and engineering updates and an enhanced engine control system. The result is a new, high-performance engine series that enables customers to maximize efficiency and minimize fuel cost while greatly simplifying and improving packaging, operation and service. The 275GL Series has been designed with factory-mounted lube oil and cooling systems, which reduce the time and cost required to design, fabricate and integrate the 275GL into a compressor package. Other features include an upgraded oil filtration system with plate-type oil cooler and spin-on disposable lube oil filter elements, and quick disconnects for ignition coils and thermocouples. These improvements, along with new design features that are common to both the 12- and 16-cylinder models, streamline and optimize the 275GL Series.
