ValvTechnologies’ EcoPack® Low-emission Valve

Evaluate this Device

Reducing fugitive emissions is a leading concern in the fight against climate change. The EPA estimates that the production segment of the oil and natural gas industry is responsible for 45% of total methane emissions. In 2015, the first-ever plan to regulate emissions from this industry was launched: because valve leakage is responsible for more than 50% of total fugitive emissions, valves have been a considerable focus in the effort to reduce fugitive emissions. ValvTechnologies’ is leading the charge in the reduction of fugitive emissions with the development of the EcoPack®: a superior stem packing solution for high-cycle, fast acting valves that meets stringent fugitive emissions requirements. ValvTechnologies NexTech® pulsejet valve with EcoPack® was recently tested by an independent agency that verified the solution not only met but exceeded endurance testing standard performed 500,000 cycles while retaining a maximum leakage rate equivalent to ISO 15848-1 2006 Class BH for the entirety of the test.

  • Longer intervals of plant operation between maintenance schedules

  • Safer plant operation due to less exposure of plant personnel to valves requiring packing adjustment

  • Longer valve seal life

  • Reduced emissions to comply with EPA fugitive emissions requirements
