A reliable, safe, durable and economical valve selection is very important, and the aim of this presentation is to explain the advantages and disadvantages of each one depending on the location of a typical delayed coker installation, without intended to downgrade any other type of valve designs.

AMPO – POYAM VALVES as manufacturer of different type of valves, provide a complete severe service valve solution. Defending one idea: one type of valve is not better than other type. One type of valve has a specific location for a perfect performance; becoming the perfect valve for this place.

The target is to compare from an objective point of view of: design, sealing, construction, actuation, costs… lift plug valves, ball valves and gate valves.
