Frenstar Valves

Frenstar Valves cryogenic LNG valves are widely used throughout the world, from liquefaction plants to liquefied gas tankers and receiving LNG tank terminals, in critical and hazardous conditions at temperatures as low as -196℃ with safe and efficient service.

Frenstar Valves manufacture and supply LNG Cryogenic butterfly valves, LNG Cryogenic ball valves, LNG Cryogenic gate valves, LNG Cryogenic globe valves & LNG Cryogenic globe valves.

What is Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG)?

LNG is a non-toxic liquid which forms when natural gas is cooled to -162ºC (-260ºF). The cooling process shrinks the volume of the gas, making it easier and safer to store and ship. In its liquid state, LNG cannot ignite.

When LNG reaches its destination, it is turned back into a gas at regasification plants. It is then piped to homes, businesses and industries where it is burnt for heat or to generate electricity.  

Cryogenic LNG Butterfly valve

LNG Triple Eccentric Metal Seated Cryogenic butterfly valves are suitable for bi-directional flow and bubble tight shut-off at full rated pressure with extended bonnet according to BS 6364, Direct Mount ISO table, adjustable gland packing, one-piece blow-out proof stem, pinned disc and metal seat.

The materials used throughout are austenite stainless steel which maintains its strength at low temperatures. The sealing system is metal seated providing bi-directional bubble tight shut-off.

An extended bonnet design is used to create an insulation gas column between the stem packing and the cold fluid. This design prevents hardening and shrinking of the packing.

Butt-welding ends have a side entry maintenance system that allows replacement of the sealing ring without removing the valves from the pipeline.

All Frenstar Valves are tested at cryogenic temperature with “Manifold System” which can examine the performance as if “in-line” in an actual service condition.
