The BIG 5, the grandest trade fair for the construction sector in the Middle East, concentrated on displaying the latest solutions and products which work towards the betterment of the construction sector. This year’s edition of the BIG 5 is the platform for its visitors to review cutting edge solutions for Building Envelope & Special Construction, Building Interiors & Finishes, Construction Technologies & Building Automation, Construction Tools & Building Materials, MEP Services, and Offsite & Modular Construction. It works as the ideal platform for companies who are looking to make deals, build partnerships, review the latest technologies in these sectors, learning about current and future projects and market needs, and explore new project ventures and opportunities in the Middle East region. Being a trusted and prominent supplier of various industrial and engineering products and solutions in the Middle East region for more than 40 years, the company has always been a state of development to introduce solutions to eradicate the problems faced in the Maritime and Energy sectors. We will be unveiling a bunch of our recent products at this gala event.
A brief look into the new products and prime focus for the Maritime and Energy sectors.
A ball valve is a shut-off valve that controls the flow of a liquid or gas by means of a rotary ball having a bore. By rotating the ball a quarter-turn (90 degrees) around its axis, the medium can flow through or is blocked. They have a long service life and provide a reliable sealing over the life span, even when the valve is not in use for a long period of time. Ball Valves are used for flow and pressure control and shut off for corrosive fluids, slurries, normal liquid, and gases. They are used in the oil and natural gas industry.
Gate valves operate by lifting off a round or rectangular gate out of the path of the fluid and they facilitate only unidirectional flow. Gate valves are used in an application in which a full unrestricted flow of the fluid is desired. As the gate can be opened to the full bore it provides very less frictional loss. Steam circuits of ships are the most ideal for the use of gate valves due to their characteristics. Steam cause heating and deformation of the material that it passes through; normally have a flexible gate made out of two circulate plates with a hub in-between to account for any change of dimensions in the valve body rather than a solid gate.
Globe SDNR valve
Globe Valves are the most commonly used on board ships in places like bilge suction lines. The linear motion valve regulates the flow of the fluid and has a globe-shaped body that houses the valve seat and the disc. The general arrangement of a globe valve comprises of the valve seat and the disc arranged at a right angle to the axis of the valve. The valve is opened by the perpendicular movement of the disc, away from the valve seat causing a space between the disc and the disc ring.
The flow regulating pivoted disc valves are known as Butterfly valves. These valves are quick acting valves which fully open or close the valve with only a quarter of a turn. They are used widely on ships for large capacity lines like forward and aft seawater suction lines or lines from various tanks to their respective pumps. Lube oil pipelines also preferably have butterfly valves fitted in them.
