Severn Glocon Technologies Expands Production Facilities
Severn Glocon Technologies is investing over £100,000 in new Directional Control Valve (DCV) production and test facilities at its headquarters in Redruth, Cornwall. Part of the Severn Glocon group, the company is spearheading the development of new subsea valves and systems for the global oil and gas market.
Increased levels of subsea processing are prompting the development of next generation DCV valves capable of handling higher pressures and temperatures, and greater water depths. DCV valves are a key component in subsea processing safety systems. In the event an Emergency Shut Down (ESD) is initiated, the DCVs can be set to delatch at different pressures, ensuring tree and manifold valves close in the correct sequence.
Severn Glocon Technologies is establishing a DCV production unit, for the manufacture of Bi-Stable DCVs comprising two control cell pilots. This includes the installation of a Class 7 (ISO 14644-1) cleanroom for assembly and flushing the DCVs, and a hyperbaric chamber for proof testing the valve’s delatching pressure.
“DCVs are a key component of subsea processing systems,” says Brian Green, managing director, Severn Glocon Technologies. “Our range of DCVs will reflect the latest developments in the technology for these safety critical systems.”
