No single valve manufacturer in the world has a broader base of installed valve applications. Adams has long been a leader in engineered valve solutions for Power Generation, Refinery, Chemical and Petrochemical, Pulp and Paper, Liquefied Natural Gas Liquefaction and Regasification, District Heating and Cooling. Unique Applications such as Hydro Electric, Solar Power Generation, and others are wellsupported by Adams.
Includes:Fossil Fuel Power, Combined Cycle Power, Hydroelectric Power, Solar Power, and Nuclear Power. In Combined Cycle Power Generation, Adams has successfully installed our patented triple eccentric valves in Turbine Inlet and Cold Reheat lines. Our Extraction Line Check Valves protect high pressure, intermediate pressure and low pressure steam turbines. Our hydraulically dampened check valves provide the highest level of protection for cooling water pumps. Adams even offers combined function check valves that act as a block, control and check valve all in one hydraulically dampened package. Feedwater heater level control is another common application for the Adams triple eccentric zero leakage valve.
Look in almost any LNG liquefaction plant in the world built in the last 20 years, and you will find Adams triple eccentric valves designed to handle liquid natural gas at -196 C. Our testing has proven the design of the Adams MAK can provide a tightness level 10 times more stringent than industry standards require. Providing valves as large as 70" Class 300 for LNG service, from the loading dock transfer lines to compressor isolation, no one has more experience handling cryogenic applications than Adams.
The production of ethylene is one of the most important chemical processes in existence. The use of Adams on the Transfer Line and Decoke lines has provided many customers with the ultimate in product performance. The use of our patented Triple Eccentric Technology in our block valves and high temperature Combined Function Check valves allows our customers to operate at peak efficiency. With unique product features like integrated steam swept seats and contained counterweights with a Free Travel Coupling, no one can match Adams for ingenuity and engineering execution.
Adams has worked closely with the district heating industry since 1962, and our company continues to be a global leader in the supply of valves for steam, hot water and chilled water. Our decades of experience in working with the district energy market enable Adams to provide mature valve engineering for an entire range of applications. Valve solutions for shut-off and control with flanged or weld-end connections in ASME pressure classes from 150 to 900, have been proven over many years of service. The Adams patented triple off-set metal-to-metal sealing system, which provides absolute tight shut-off for temperatures up to 950 deg. F, is particularly suited for use in steam isolation..
Distillation towers, Sulfur Recovery Units, Fluid Catalytic Cracking Units, Crude Units, Tank Farms, are just a few places Adams triple eccentric valves are operating flawlessly. With the ability to manufacture in high chrome content or alloy materials, Adams can solve many refinery application problems. Our check valves successfully protect the main air blower on many FCC units. Adams supplies high temperature valves for turbo expanders and 3rd stage separators. In sulfur units, our steam heated bodies, shafts and discs prevent problems due to sulfur build-up.
