Achema 2018

ACHEMA is one of the most important exhibitions for chemical and process engineering and biotechnology. Every three years it attracts around 4.000 exhibitors from over 50 different countries and 170.000 professionals from all over the world. The main applications include laboratory equipment, pumps and analytical devices, packaging machinery, boilers and stirrers, safety technology, materials and software, and cover all the needs of the chemical, pharmaceutical and food production industries.

 

If you’re visiting ACHEMA exhibition, remember to pay a visit to WIKA stand first: a brand new application display will allow you to actually experience the perfect combination between WIKA gauges, transmitters and instruments and Sami valves, brackets and accessories: a complete assembly which will save you both time and energy and provide a complete solution for your instrumentation needs.

The new display will also illustrate the piping double block and bleed and monoflange applications and other high pressure samples will complete Sami Instruments product range.

Low temperature: what is the real limit for needle and manifold valves?

The difference between “survival” and “operated” is essential regarding low temperature. When is it really “too cold” for Sami needle and manifold valves?

Sometimes a simple question can turn out to be quite controversial.

One of the most frequent doubts our customers wish to clarify is: “can Sami needle valves and manifolds sustain a temperature below -46°C (-51°F)?”.

The first aspect to define in this case is what the customer means exactly.

It’s well-known that there is an important difference between “survival” and “operated”, when we are talking about minimum and maximum temperatures.

The current minimum design temperature for needle and manifold valves is -46°C.

Our valves are manufactured in a way which allows them to resist up to -196°C (-320°F), with PTFE packing, but when the temperature falls below -46°C (-50°F), the valve must be considered fit for “survival, not operated“.

What does it mean? Essentially, that the valve will indeed resist to these extreme temperatures, without breaking or major leaks, but it won’t be possible to open, close or drain it.

In fact, valves below -46°C are usually considered cryogenic valves, according to international standards: they need special extended bonnets to be operated and require an in-depth analysis on the materials which must be used.

Therefore, it’ is always important to check the use and installation of the valve, if customer’s specifications are missing.

 

Do you need more information regarding Sami valves and their low-temperature applications? Contact our experts to make sure you choose the right valve for your application.

Updated catalogues: more information and increased readability

The new revision of Sami Instruments’ catalogues comes with a new graphic layout as well as an updated content.

Behind this decision was the need to have a better classification of our items, with a more elegant layout and more accessible information for our customers.

The new edition is composed of 7 catalogues, one for each product line:

  1. Ball Valves
  2. Needle and Manifold valves
  3. Monoflanges
  4. Instrumentation Ball Valves
  5. Piping Ball Valves (NEW!)
  6. Accessories (low pressure adapters, gauge snubbers and check valves)
  7. Medium and High Pressure valves and fittings

New revision

 

What has changed?

The previous Technical section has been included in the relevant product literature, thus providing more handy technical background directly in the product catalogue without the need to browse a different file.

The new, dedicated catalogue “Piping ball valves” focuses on the full and reduced bore ball valves for piping applications in the oil & gas market.

Each catalogue has been re-checked and updated to provide our customers with always clear, precise and quick information to choose the correct product.
