Amec Foster Wheeler and DeltaValve, LLC, have formed a strategic alliance related to DeltaValve’s centre feed technology.The centre feed technology will be incorporated into all new SYDECSM delayed coking units licensed worldwide by Amec Foster Wheeler. Amec Foster Wheeler can also incorporate the centre feed technology into delayed coking unit revamps.
“DeltaValve’s innovative centre feed device addresses the issues of uneven thermal distribution and severe thermal transients by simply returning feed streams to the centre of the coke drum, resulting in more consistent operation and longer coke drum life. Coupled with Amec Foster Wheeler’s SYDECSM delayed coking technology, process experience, engineering, integration and execution capabilities, DeltaValve’s centre feed device allows our joint customers to maximise the safety, throughput, reliability and profitability of their coking operations,” said Steve Beeston, Vice President, Global Technology Business Development, Amec Foster Wheeler.
“Global refiners are looking to Amec Foster Wheeler to deliver market leading value by providing the best combination of its world leading SYDECSM delayed coking process technology and equipment. DeltaValve’s innovative equipment, coupled with Amec Foster Wheeler’s breadth and depth of knowledge and experience, provides the platform for refiners to efficiently and effectively manage refinery assets in today’s globally competitive refining market,” said Ruben Lah, President and CEO of DeltaValve, and Chief Inventor of the centre feed device.
