When natural gas is cooled to a temperature of approximately -260°F [-160°C] at atmospheric pressure it condenses to a liquid called liquefied natural gas or LNG. This process reduces the overall volume of the gas by 1/600. In other words, it takes up about 1/600th the volume of natural gas in the gaseous state. This reduction of volume allows the producer the ability to transport the product very economically and then re-gasify at the final point of use. The cooling process requires valves that are prepared and tested for cryogenics. Triad offers a series of cryogenic ball valves that are all manufactured and tested to British Standard 6364 (BS 6364) which requires the cryogenic ball valve to perform at temperatures as low as -321°F.
Triad manufactures high quality high pressure ball valves, cryogenic ball valves, metal seated ball valves, flanged ball valves, industrial butterfly valves, high performance butterfly valves, control valves and custom valves to meet your specifications.
