Parker Bestobell Marine is promoting a new line of high pressure cryogenic valves that are fully approved for use in the marine sector.

The valves can withstand pressures of up to 625 bar, with a range from ½” to 3” and are designed specifically for the fuel gas systems of ME-GI liquefied natural gas-diesel dual fuel engines developed by MAN Diesel & Turbo.

The new range includes manual, gearbox operation, single actuator and tandem actuator valves. Parker Bestobell Marine also offers high pressure check valves.

ECAs Spur Demand

“We developed these valves in collaboration with a number of shipbuilding companies which required them for the MAN ME-GI fuel gas systems,” Parker Bestobell Marine market development manager Duncan Gaskin said in a release.

“As worldwide markets look to reduce air pollutants and with the introduction of Emission Control Areas,” he said, “we expect to see demand increase for high pressure valves that are marine approved.”

Previous Use on LNG Carriers

Parker Bestobell Marine has supplied high-pressure valves for fuel gas systems for a variety of projects, including five Teekay LNG carriers being built at DSME (Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering) in South Korea, two LNG carriers being built by Hyundai Heavy Industries in Korea for Knutsen OAS Shipping of Norway, and three LEG (liquefied ethylene gas) carriers to be built in China for Ocean Yield of Norway – the first to use ethane as a fuel.

Parker Bestobell Marine says that its new high-pressure valve range will be launched at LNG18, the 18th International Conference & Exhibition on Liquefied Natural Gas, which runs April 11-15 in Perth, Australia.

Quantum’s Q-VP650 ‘Virtual Pipeline’

November 2, 2015 in CNG, HHP Summit 2015, new products by Rich Piellisch  |  No Comments

High-Capacity Unit Employs 51 High-Pressure Q-Lite CNG Cylinders

In addition to a single control for all of the Q-VP650’s 51 CNG tanks, Quantum promoted ‘PerfectFill’ technology it says could allow for storage of as much as 39% more gas.

In addition to a single control for all of the Q-VP650’s 51 CNG tanks, Quantum promotes ‘PerfectFill’ technology it says could allow for storage of as much as 39% more gas.

Quantum Technologies unveiled a “virtual pipeline” trailer for transporting CNG at HHP Summit 2015. The Q-VP650 is built with 51 of the company’s Q-Lite brand all-composite lightweight CNG cylinders affording capacity of up to 645,000 SCF/standard cubic feet of gas – about 4,800 DGE/diesel gallon equivalents – at 5,000 psi.

The high-capacity units “are easily transportable domestically and globally,” Quantum says, as they are designed to fit in a 45-foot ISO shipping container.

More Gas for the Given Volume

Patented “PerfectFill” technology with a new gas-injecting nozzle allows for storage of as much as 39% more gas, the manufacturer adds.

The Q-VP650’s CNG tanks are vertically mounted “to minimize stress due to chassis twists and for longer tank life.”

Quantum introduced its 5,000-psi Q-Lite tanks for high horsepower applications early this past summer (HHP Insight, June 12).
