Hydraulically Actuated Subsea Gate Valves

Oliver Valvetek Limited manufactures a range of hydraulically actuated subsea gate valves, from 1/2" bore to 1" bore. These valves typically have an operating pressure rating up to 15,000psi [1,034bar] and an operating temperature range of -20F [29c] to +300F [+150c]. Water depth rating down to 10,000ft [3,050m]. Oliver Valvetek engineer and innovative Shallow, Medium and Deep Water Hydraulic Gate Valves for use in the Oil, Gas and Petrochemical sectors.

Hydraulically Actuated Subsea Gate Valves provide the user with a low flow restriction metal to metal seat sealing isolation for applications such as chemical injection lines on Christmas trees and manifold structures.

The Oliver Valvetek hydraulic gate valve range of through conduit slab gate valves are provided with hydraulically actuated (fail close or fail open) operation.

The gate and seat sealing faces used within the valves utilise fully Qualified Tungsten Carbide hard facing technology to provide gas tight sealing. The small bore subsea gate valves are qualified at different pressure ratings up to 1,034bar (15,000psi).

Qualification testing is performed to the exacting standards of API 6A Appendix F PR2 and 17D 2nd Ed. Compact hydraulic actuators can be supplied for a range of different water depths down to 3,050m (10,000ft).

Disc Spring or Coil Spring Fail Close Actuator

The fail close (optional fail open) action is by way of a disc spring stack or coil spring stack. These have been design and tested for thousands of operating cycles. A 50,000 cycle test was successfully conducted on one set replicating a full field service life application. Actuator spring stack can be provided for water depths down to 10,000ft [3050m] with current product developments to consider actuators for ultra deep water projects in excess of 10,000ft.

Override Operator

The actuated gate valves can be supplied with an override operator, which can be used to open the gate valve in the event of a loss of hydraulic pressure. Different adaptors can be provided for connection to extension rods for ROV operation and can be customised to your specific applications.

Position Indication

Clear position during both hydraulic and override operation.

Hydraulic Actuator Seals

Capped seals or Tee seal hydraulic actuator seals with Peek anti-extrusion rings are used as standard and are suitable for Hydraulic System operational pressures of 5,000psi [345 bar] and have been tested to 7,500psi [517 bar]. Oliver Valvetek can also offer customised seal material solutions if required to meet with the demands of specific control fluids and applications. Please contact our Sales our Technical team for further information and support.

Override Operating Threads

The multi-turn ACME thread design ensures low override operating torques.

Uninterrupted flow passage through valve

The through conduit slab gate and seat design in The control on the fully open position provides clear through bore with minimum restriction to flow.
