TITAN HP Swing Disc Valve

Overview

The United Conveyor Corporation (UCC) TITAN™ HP swing disc valve is designed specifically for vessel isolation service in high pressure, dense phase pneumatic conveying applications. The TITAN HP valve utilizes proven UCC swing-disc technology and is a superior, drop-in replacement to rubber seat valves found in non-UCC systems.

The TITAN HP valve incorporates metal-to-metal seating for extended service life and reduced maintenance/rebuilds in abrasive ash handling applications. The large access port allows inspection and maintenance without removing the valve from service, saving time and money. The valve is fully assembled and can be shipped pre-piped to reduce field assembly and installation costs.

Case Study:

Plant Challenge:

A Southeast Asian Utility had dome valves failing monthly, which caused a significant increase in operation costs. The dome valves, installed in a trench with restricted access, made it difficult to maintain or repair. Once a month, the plant would have to build and dismantle scaffolding in the trench to install replacement seals for the dome valves.

UCC Solution:

UCC reached out to the plant with a solution to reduce maintenance and labor costs associated with the failing dome valves. UCC replaced [1] worn deck plate valve with a preassembled UCC TITAN HP Valve for a six-month, side-by-side performance test.

Results:

The UCC TITAN HP Valve proved to outperform the non-UCC dome valve, showing only minor wear after six months in operation. Due to its superior performance, the plant installed [3] additional TITAN HP valves that have now been in operation for more than four years needing only minimal maintenance. Today the customer has standardized the UCC TITAN HP Valve and orders exclusively from UCC.
