Maverick manufactures a complete line of quality API 6A valves, and can provide the exact valves and actuators to meet the most demanding application requirements.
Our API 6A valves are available in an extensiverange of designs, materials, sizes and pressure classes and are in full conformance with API and NACE specifications. All API 6A valves are designed in accordancewith API 6A and where applicable with ASMEVIII Div.1 and Div.
The Maverick family of API 6A valves provides positive shut-off of fluids and gases under extreme service conditions.
Maverick uses only high-quality materials inspected & tested to International Standards and utilizes advanced manufacturing technology with special emphasis on safety, quality, and long service life of our products, to ensure that our clients receive the “best in class” products available from us at a competitive price and delivered on time.
The forging material can ensure the best rigidity and strength under maximum rated operation pressure without inherent flaw of cast.
Other properties found in forging include greater impact resistance, resistance to fatigue cracking, particularly when cycling at either
high or cryogenic temperature.
Overdesigned wall thickness and adaptation of high strength tie bolts are convenient for valve maintenance and sufficient to bear the stress of pipe.
The internal parts of valve are carefully designed and selected to ensure reliability under all kinds of work conditions.
Since a variety of materials are available, Maverick valves can be used with various fluids and gases including petroleum based oils and extreme sour gas service.
Maverick API 6A Valve design is developed using the latest software based analysis tools. At the design stage, all projects are analysed using 3D solid modeling tools. Benefits include reduction of development time and costs, improved product quality, and ability to solve field problems for customers.
Product flexibility and accuracy is assured.
Finite Element Analysis (FEA) is a very important step of the development stage and ensures the best possible performance requirements.
Valves operational problems, pressure/temperature related deformations
and flow-related forces within a valve can be evaluated.
Maverick uses the FEA for predicting failure due to unknown stresses by showing problem areas in a material and allowing designers to see all of the theoretical stresses within.
This method of product design and testing is far superior to the manufacturing costs which would accrue if each sample was actually built
During any analysis project, it is the responsibility of the Maverick analyst to verify that analysis results conform to the physics of the problem
under study. Understanding the response of a structure or manufactured product allows effective design decisions to be made in developing structures and products that are functional, meet all engineering requirements, and can be manufactured and assembled.
Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) is used to simulate operating flow conditions.
Evaluation of Valve CV coefficient and convective heat transfer coefficient takes place at the design stage.
GENERAL MAIN FEATURES are :
Optional examinations like:
MARKING AND IDENTIFICATION
Each valve is identified on proper name plate and on valve body as required by API 6A, MSS-SP 25, ASME B16.34 Name plate carries all information on rating, size, valve body and trim material, customer tags.
Body marking includes material designations (per ASTM) and heat code and of course the trade mark
