Samson Ringo has recently completed the manufacturing; testing and shipment of an ESDV Top entry ball valve 36” 1500# to be installed in the IDKU field in Alexandria (Egypt). End user of these valves is Burullus Gas Co. / Rashid Petroleum and valve is going to be installed in the offshore pipeline to a slug catcher related to a brownfield engineering project made by ENPPI, who has been the direct customer of this order.

Manufacturing of this valve has represented a challenge to Samson Ringo due to the great size and weight of the valve as well as its specifications: valve was required to have duplex trim (A182 F51) and metal seated, with Tungsten Carbide Coating.

This is the heaviest valve ever produced by Samson Ringo with a total weight of 50 tons so special transportation to the port had to be arranged.
