Gas processing plant

In the spring of 2015, SAMI has been awarded the biggest project sales in Sichuan: The Dragon King Temple (DKT) Gasfield Project.

SAMI’s High Pressure Valves and Fittings were mounted on the natural gas well control equipment (Christmas tree) and thousands of monoflanges and Double block and bleed ball valves were used in process interface instrumentation, both in central gas processing plant and in gas transportation pipelines. After one year of operation on site, the end-user is giving SAMI high remarks on product quality, reliability and excellent service support thus achieving the success of the DKT project.


“This visit is part of the Vendor Assessment phase” explained Mr. Chan. “After the visit, we will work with the group to complete a post-visit report. Once completed, the report will be submitted to their headquarters in Beijing for management review. Moreover, the visit in Sami will be shared in the internal communication system, which will be read by thousands of Petrochina’s employees”.

“The feedback I received was great” continues Mr. Chan. “They were impressed by the lean production and state-of-the-art technology of SAMI. Seeing is believing. I trust the group is reporting a very positive feedback to their headquarters.”


During the visit, we presented our guests with a plaque each to remember the important cooperation between Sami and Petrochina. In the picture, Mr. Johnny Chan (President of HKK) proudly shows his plaque.


“Thanks to the Dragon King Temple project Sami brand is now approved by Petrochina” added Mr. Prainito “and we were very proud to show this important group our company, plants and products”.

Special designs of Sami ball valves

Special designs of Sami ball valves

Sami simple ball valves are usually available for pressures up to 6.000 or 10.000 psi, with threaded or welded connections and in a variety of materials.

On request, we can design a special version, according to our customers’ needs.


Ball valves for actuator mounting

Our HB ball valves can be designed with a bracket and arranged to be connected to an actuator.

With the data of the actuator provided by our customer we designed the stem  and the whole construction of the valve, which was specially created for this project.

The valve was manufactured in AISI 316L, with the exception of the stems which were created in a high performance material in order to increase the MAST (Maximum Allowable Stem Torque) value.

The torque of the actuator, should never exceed MAST value, at any stage, otherwise the stem may be subject to mechanical failure.

Ball valves for insulation

Our ball valves can also be requested with a longer stem for applications which require insulation.

The customer provided the details of the installation requested and we developed a customized solution.

The material of construction, also in this case, was AISI 316L.

Sami Helium leak test

Helium leak test available for needle valves and manifolds

New helium leak test at Sami premises

Sami recently acquired a helium test equipment for stricter leak inspections on needle valves and manifolds.

It’s well know that helium is one of the smallest gas molecules and therefore, when used as a medium, can detect even the smallest leaks, which water medium might not identify.

This test is more and more requested for fugitive emission compliant valves (ISO 15848) and for the most performing applications.

Sami helium leak test is available on request and can reach a variety of pressures.

The maximum value of leakage shall be 1 ž10-6 mbaržl/sec and the test duration is approximately 2 min.


To request this test or find out if it’s available for the product your interested in, please contact us.



Firesafe test API 6FA and API 607 for Sami Monoflanges

Sami Monoflanges are now firesafe tested

Although our monoflanges with O.S. & Y. bonnet are already tested to BS6755-2, they are now also firesafe tested to API6FA and API 607 EN ISO 10497.

The two tests, witnessed by an inspector of TÜV Rheinland® Italia, took place at Sami headquarters, and concerned two monoflanges with O.S&Y. bonnet 1/2″ 6.000 psi in AISI 316L and in Duplex® F51.


Before and after the firesafe test


Both monoflanges were filled with water under pressure and completely enveloped in flames, with an environmental temperature ranging from 761°C to 1000°C (1401°F/1832°F), for a period of 30 minutes.


Burning phase


The seats and seating area were exposed to the high burn temperature, which was monitored using thermocouples and calorimeters, and both internal and external leakage was recorded.


Sami technical staff monitoring the process


After half an hour the fire was extinguished and the valves were brought to a temperature below 100°C (212°F) within 10 minutes.


Cooling phase


The bonnets remained operable and the valves were hydrostatically tested to ensure that the valve shell, seats and seals could still sustain the pressure of the fluid.


After the fire the valve must remain operable


After the successful conclusion of both tests, TÜV Rheinland® Italia released the two firesafe certificates, which can be downloaded here.
