INVITED BY SHELL MALAYSIA TO PRESENT AT THEIR SKILL POOL SESSIONS “SHARING KNOWLEDGE “ BALL VALVE TECHNOLOGY AND DESIGN AWARENESS

Recently we were invited to present at SHELL Malaysia’s SKILL POOL sessions; it is a forum whereby they exchange ideas with owners of techonolgy, equipment and processes to “share knowledge“.
Our presentation on the topics we presented covered:
1.  Seat designs and configuration – soft seats, metal seats, PMSS seats / SR, DPE and Dual seats
2.  Elastomers/o’rings, lip seals in a valve body – selection criteria

It was so well received by SHELL we have been requested to prepare full day technical training programs for their engineers expanding the topics to cover all areas of design, costing / fit for purpose selection criteria and new technologies.

It is not a rare occasion when Design Engineers in MIR VALVE encounter opportunities for cost savings and performance improvements when reviewing customer specifications and datasheets.  However, to take full advantage of these benefits, this usually requires a revision of the customer’s specifications which is usually ‘set-in-stone’ by the time it reaches EPC stages of a project. Usually, it’s too late to effect many positive “ fit for purpose “ improvements.    As engineers, it is incumbent on us to maximize value for our clients: design products with efficient material use that fit their intended purposes, life cycle integrity and spec compliance.  We recognize that opportunity lies in introducing cost efficient concepts at the early FEED stages of a project.
