Arca Regler delivers anti-surge valves to Mexico
October 2017, News


Arca Flow Controls in Houston, Texas, the US subsidiary of Arca Regler Germany, recently received an order for the delivery of several large anti-surge control valves. Arca has just delivered these specialised valves that are designed for several compressor lines in Mexico. The project is due to go on line towards the beginning of 2018.

The anti-surge globe-type control valves are from the proven Ecotrol modular parts system and are designed to prevent the compressors from pumping under stressful conditions in the plant. They also prevent an airflow disruption at the compressor blades in order to preclude damage.

The compressor lines each consist of one single-screw compressor and driven by a gas turbine. Two lines will be installed in a pipeline station in La Laguna in the Mexican federal state of 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 1500 km that transports the natural gas from the north into the country’s interior.

When choosing the anti-surge valves, various things were considered including Arca’s vast application knowledge and reliability record, as well as the easy to maintain clamping seat design. Arca Regler offers advanced solutions for anti-surge control valves and the continuous development of the Ecotrol modular parts system further satisfies the growing demands of the compressor manufacturers market. A high flow rate, low noise level, fast reaction times as well as high control accuracy are among the many advantages of this modular valve system.
