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

The anti-surge globe-type control valves come from the proven Ecotrol® modular parts system. The valves have to 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 kilometres length that transports the natural gas from the North into the country’s inland.
