Delayed Coker Valves

Industrial Valve Repair – Delayed Coker Repair

Valve Repair - Delayed Coker RepairProper maintenance ensures that delayed coker valves stay fully operational and can continue to handle the demanding conditions of coke processing.
Coking operations put severe strain on the valves used to control the coke making process. Common impacts on coker ball valves are:

  • Internal corrosion due to the valve reacting with the material flowing through it.
  • Internal erosion due to the high-speed flow and abrasive nature of petroleum coke particles.
  • Buildup of heavy residuum in the seat or stem areas jamming the valve.

We specialize in the refurbishment and modification of delayed coker valves, both ball and rising-rotating stem plug design. Over the past 15 years, we have repaired over 500 coker ball and plug valves.
