Louisiana Valve Source Releases Sup-R-Seal Gate Valve

Thursday, Jul 09, 2015

Louisiana Valve Source (LVS), a nationwide leader in valve repair and remanufactured process equipment, announced the release of its engineered gate valve for the midstream pipeline market.

LVS designed the Sup-R-Seal Model ES Gate Valve per the specification for pipeline valves, API 6D. This solution for oil and gas markets is a through conduit expanding gate valve for diverse applications ranging from liquid and slurry piping systems to crude oil and natural gas liquids transport. Improved reliability and availability of the Sup-R-Seal is achieved with capabilities such as in-line repair, custom packing set design, smooth flow conduit, seat face protection and double block and bleed capability.

“The double block and bleed capability helps reduce the number of potential leak paths to meet the more stringent EPA regulations,” said Justyn Durand, Product Manager for Sup-R-Seal Gate Valve. “The fully protected seat faces in both the open and closed positions allow for extended life of the seats,” added Durand.

“For years we’ve offered our clients superior service and the highest quality in remanufactured valves. Now, we’re excited to offer our clients an original, engineered product that we’ve manufactured right here in the United States,” said Brad Bergeron, President and CEO of LVS. “Utilizing the Sup-R-Seal ultimately reduces the need for two separate valves, and therefore offers a more-cost effective solution by lowering maintenance costs, resulting in a lower total cost of ownership,” added Bergeron.
