Arca Regler delivers five anti-surge valves to Mexico
Arca Flow Controls in Houston, the US subsidiary of Arca Regler GmbH/ Germany, received an order last year in the US for the delivery of several large anti-surge control valves. The delivery of the valves took place beginning of this year. The valves are designed for several compressor lines in Mexico, that are supposed to go online in winter 2017 or beginning of 2018.

The anti-surge globe-type control valves come from the Ecotrol modular parts system. The valves prevent the compressors from pumping in stressful situations in the plant. They also prevent an airflow disruption at the compressor blades in order to preclude damages at the compressor.
The compressor lines each consist of one single-screw compressor and are driven by a gas turbine. Two lines will be installed in a pipeline station in La Laguna in the Mexican federal state Coahuila. The other three lines are set aside for a pipeline compressor station in Villa de Reyes in the federal state of San Luis Potosi.
The pipelines will deliver natural gas to CFE (Comisión Federal de Electricidad) power stations as well as industry plants. The compressor stations output serves a pipeline of about 1,500 km length that transports the natural gas from the North into the country’s inland.
On the opening day of Gastech 2017, which took place in April in Tokyo, Japan, international energy leaders examined how gas suppliers are adapting to the changing global market.
