Valve Lubrication and Sealing for Oil and Gas Applications
Valve problems caused by inadequate lubrication and sealing, abrasive
contaminants, or severe-duty service can typically include:
• Galling and scoring
• Seal, seat or packing failure
• Corrosion and internal and external leakages of valves
• Sticking and seizing, leading to imperfect response to control signals
Proper lubrication of valve components can reduce wear; improve durability and dependability; and help deliver pipeline content safely, efficiently and responsibly. Such lubrication also can help preserve valve seal, seat and packing materials to ensure leak-free operation.
