BuTech has developed an ANPT spec for its pipe thread valves. The Butech ANTP Spec extends PSI tolerances by more than 80-percent (15K PSI versus 8K PSI) over the Aerospace NPT (ANTP) spec. The new BuTech Spec was created after a thorough research program that identified the ideal taper gage in the male/female set of fittings. By eliminating excessive truncation, and adjusting tap drills on the minor end, BuTech fittings engage in more turns (from 2.5 to 4), providing more surface contact, which results in a tighter fit that is rated up to 15,000 PSI.
Tight tolerance threads provide reliable fittings for offshore equipment deployed in high-pressure, high-temperature environments. To find out more, read the article published in Oil and Gas Australia magazine.
BuTech medium pressure valves and fittings have achieved Product Design Assessment (PDA) certification through the American Bureau of Shipping’s (ABS) Type Approval program. This approval is good for tier 1, 2, 3 and 4 categories.
Visit BuTech at Valve World Americas booth #243. Valve World America Expo and Conference, will be held July 15 and 16, 2015, at the George R. Brown Convention Center in Houston, TX, USA. The expo and conference will serve as the meeting point for the flow control industry and showcase the latest technologies, components and systems in the field of industrial flow control.
Haskel, the leading designer and manufacturer of high-pressure generating equipment and controls, developed a new concept that will play an integral role in a complex unit designed and delivered by the Norwegian subsidiary of Oceaneering, a global provider of engineered services and products to the oil and gas industry.
