Book Description

Pipeline Valve Technology

    This book covers the life cycle of pipeline valves, the largest and most essential valves in offshore pipeline engineering. Discussing the design process, testing, production, transportation, installation, and maintenance, the book also covers the risk analysis required to assess the reliability of these valves.


    Pipeline valves require particular attention to ensure they are safely designed, installed, and maintained, due to the high stakes. Failure would result in environmental pollution, the destruction of expensive assets, and potential loss of life. Proper installation and upkeep require specialist processes throughout the life cycle of the valve. This book is a key guide to these processes. Beginning by looking at the design of pipeline valves, this book details how conserving weight and space is prioritized, how materials are chosen, how thickness is calculated, and how leakage is minimized. It then discusses production and specific welding techniques to bond dissimilar materials, alongside casting and machining. Building on other discussions in the text with case studies and questions and answers for self-study, this book is the ideal guide to pipeline valves.

    This book will be of interest to professionals in the industries of offshore oil and gas, material engineering, coatings, mechanical engineering, and piping. It will also be relevant to students studying coating and welding, or mechanical, piping, or petroleum engineering.
