The visbreaker is commonly downstream of the distillation units. Feed is the heavy oil from the distillation unit. Objectives are to reduce the viscosity of the feed stream and to decrease the amount of lower valued residual fuel oil. Here mainly heavy feed oil is processed which presents difficulties for valves to provide for reliable shut off.
A main valve component in the visbreaker unit is the visbreaker control valve that is controlling the put through of the feed together with injecting lighter oil to control the viscosity of the feed.
For this process MIAM produces high quality visbreaker control globe valves as well as shut off plug valves that ensure that the valve seats are protected from the process while the valve is in open or the closed position. MIAM plug valves ensure a reliable and long lasting quality shut off at a very favorable cost of ownership.
We would be very pleased to assist you for the correct application of our valves in your process plant or for further questions or information that you may have.
