SlurryFlo has installed 85+ ANSI 600 control valves at natural gas extraction facilities in northern Canada.

SlurryFlo's patented trim design acts as a variable orifice, centering the abrasive flow. This protects the valve body and downstream piping from erosion, while delivering a quantum leap in service life (lasting 3-10x longer than any other severe service control valve). See below for various applications that have utilized SlurryFlo control valves in natural gas extraction facilities.
Application 1

High Pressure Flashing Valve

  • High pressure drop, multi-phase flashing with high density sand.
  • Up to 5% solids by weight.

Control Valve Design & Trim

  • 6” ANSI 600 – Multi Orifice Trim.
  • Sintered tungsten carbide gate and seat plate (field replaceable).
  • Single-acting pneumatic actuator (fail close spring).

Initial Trim Inspection
SlurryFlo Flashing Trim Design Geometry
The trim exhibited minor erosion upon the 6-month inspection and was returned to service (slow predictable wear, as opposed to sudden valve failure).
Application 2

Inlet Header Control Valve

  • Plant inlet header pressure control (natural gas and sand).
  • Meets NACE MR0175 requirements.
  • Elevated sand content.

Control Valve Design & Trim

  • 12” ANSI 600 – E1 Custom Trim.
  • 17-4 (H1150) stainless steel gate and seat plate with tungsten carbide overlay (field replaceable components).
  • Double acting pneumatic actuator with auxiliary fail tank system.
