A company out of Drayton Valley has developed the SafeSeal Valve System designed to reduce pipeline spills and catastrophic events.
The concept is straightforward – poor maintenance of critical values can result in huge problems along a pipeline or with oil and gas operations. Essentially these valves need to be greased properly and frequently or the valves seals can be damaged and don’t function properly. When you have a pipeline depending on valves that work, maintenance, especially in remote areas, is critically important.
President of SafeSeal, Darren Urkevich says that remote equipment is the most likely to fall prey to poor maintenance due to inaccessibility. He has personally seen valve seals that tear or pull apart due to poor maintenance even ones that were only a few years old.
In this era of environmental concerns related to oil spills, health and safety of personnel and safe operations, SafeSeal’s 360 System is easy to install and it has the ability to run off solar power, nitrogen or instrument air. By maintaining these expensive, critical values with an automated or manual greasing system, SafeSeal has the ability to extend the life of these values by almost double by following best practices.
