Bestobell Valves has announced it will be linking up with its distribution partner W&O, based in Florida, to exhibit at the HHP Summit – North America’s largest showcase of natural gas fueling and technology solutions.

The exhibition is held in New Orleans on the 6thto the 9th of October and will see Bestobell demonstrating its innovative, life-size DN100 Globe Valve with pneumatic actuator, alongside its Miniature Needle Globe Valve (MNGV). Bestobell’s sales team will also be on hand to discuss any product or technical queries relating to valve technology to suit a myriad of different natural gas and LNG applications.

W&O, which is a global supplier of marine pipe, valves and fitting, valve automation, and engineered solutions to the marine and upstream oil and gas industries, will be exhibiting for the first time, after it was recommended by Bestobell to help further develop opportunities for its marine fuel systems business.

Duncan Gaskin, Sales Director for Bestobell Valves, said, “It is great to be supporting W&O and to be joining forces using our combined expertise to generate new opportunities, in particular for our new high pressure valves. North America is a growing market for our cryogenic valves, particularly in the marine sector, so we are very excited about the opportunity to demonstrate our manufacturing capabilities.” 

As well as demonstrating its Miniature Needle Globe Valve, Bestobell will also be discussing with visitors how the company is currently the only manufacturer of high pressure Globe Valve for use in ships’ gas fuelled engines with the necessary Class Approvals, certification and 3.2 traceability on all components. The high-pressure valves meet the exacting standards required for the valves in the new fuel gas systems, which includes withstanding extremely high pressures. The Globe Valve is designed to stand a maximum pressure of 370-bar.  

HHP Summit is an annual event of the natural gas for high horsepower applications industry, which is now in its third year. HHP Summit brings together professionals to promote innovation, technical excellence and enhance partnerships across the world, as well as highlighting natural gas opportunities for high horsepower applications that exist along the Gulf Coast.
