An IK Engineering-designed 6″ Class 400 AOGV was utilized for operations in the USA. The cast iron ball valve, which prevented internal leakage and maintenance on one of three pumps in a refinery’s cooling system, was causing operational issues. Two pumps could not adequately cool the entire plant, so a conventional shutdown was planned to replace the valve. However, it provided a purpose-built AOGV mechanical isolation tool that allowed the leaking valve to be isolated from the system. This enabled the customer to conduct maintenance without disrupting production. IK Engineering played a crucial role in the design and production process.
