Axial choke valve

This axial flow valve with solid Tungsten Carbide trims is designed to provide lower volume and weight solutions to large sized choke applications. The axial choke valve can also be fitted with fast closing features to protect downstream installations from overpressure.

Facts

Axial flow

Streamlined flow path through full-port expanded body avoids turbulence and prevents vibration and erosion of body and trim parts. Its reliability reduces the total cost of ownership and unplanned process downtime

Availability

The Total Velocity Management® concept is an intelligent valve design that carefully manages fluid velocity in all areas of the valve, minimizing erosion in body and trim. This significantly increases production availability.

Accurate control

Accurate control is possible (also with minimum opening) because of the fully pressure-balanced trim. Small, spring-opposed actuators can also be selected for large valve sizes. 

High turndown

The high inherent capacity and accurate control features make the valve suitable for both start-up and well depletion production scenarios. 

Compact

As a result of the low actuation force requirement, small actuators can be used; combined with a compact valve body design this minimizes the installation’s footprint. 

Process safety

Sometimes, a choke is considered as a safety device to prevent overload of the relief system. In this axial choke the Tungsten Carbide cage is inherently protected against direct impacts by foreign objects. 

ESD configuration

The self-energising sealing system offers reliable bi-directional and bubble tight shut-off. Therefore the axial choke valve can also be configured for Emergency Shut Down with quick and dependable valve closure.
