SPX FLOW has a long history in supplying portable pump technology to the oil and gas industry. Some of its models have proved so successful and popular that they have been around (upgraded and improved) for nearly 50 years and continue to be selected as reliable workhorses for the industry. Of course, technology has advanced over time, creating higher speeds for even greater efficiency, while maintaining high levels of performance and reliability.
Through its Plenty brand, SPX FLOW has long served the oil and gas sector with high performance, reliable filtration solutions. As an approved vendor for many major operators, it offers robust, reliable filters to meet even the most stringent of requirements and regulations. For two offshore operators, the Plenty brand was the obvious choice to meet their needs for new FPSOs.
SPX FLOW's GD Engineering brand has a long and successful history with the petrochemical and oil and gas industries. The Bandlock 2 closure is the original and benchmark design for high pressure closures. It ensures inside pressure cannot open the closure and has been proven to provide a safe, easy to use access solution with over 20,000 units in operation worldwide. Used in horizontal, vertical, inclined or declined installations for pipeline pig traps, filters, coalescers, strainers, separators, meter skid systems, hydrocyclones or any pressure vessel, even the largest of these closures can be opened in under one minute without the need for any special tools.
Mixing is a vital part of many processes. How a mixer performs can affect final product quality, productivity, process times and energy efficiency. There are many factors in the design of a mixing solution that will affect how well it operates. Understanding how to optimize these can make a real difference to plant efficiency and profitability - and this is where SPX FLOW can really help.
Incorporating the M&J Valve and Copes-Vulcan brands, SPX FLOW has long served the oil, gas and power industries with a huge range of valves designed to offer reliable, safe performance in even the most critical of applications. The valves portfolio includes Danflo Surge Relief Valves for pipeline protection against surge, Slab and Expanding Gate valves for pipeline isolation, 4-way diverter valves for Bi-Direction Provers, Turbine Bypass Valves, Desuperheaters, general and severe duty control valves for power plants. All are precisely engineered and incorporate innovative features to help address challenges faced in the oil, gas and power industries.
From its Dollinger range, SPX FLOW offers the highly efficient LL-142 liquid filters, which are engineered to remove final traces of dirt, pipe scale and other solids from process liquids. They use a radial fin element design to maximize the effective filtration area, which is up to 10 times bigger than equivalent tubular type cartridge filters. This minimizes pressure drop across the filter and increases its dirt holding capacity, thereby extending service life and reducing maintenance costs.
