Foyo supply pneumatic ceramic ball valves
14 September 2018
Foyo has received more than four ceramic ball orders from PT. PLN (Persero) Pembangkitan Sumatera Bagian to increase safety and reliability for their fly ash handling system.
As for the fly ash handling system, high-speed fly ash is extremely abrasive, and abrasion is the main problem for pipe valves and elbows. Generally soft seated and metal seated ball valves cannot last more than 3 months, frequent replacement and maintenance of the valves consume too much manpower and cost, and also had a negative impact for the pneumatic conveying system.
Foyo has more than 15 years' experience in ceramic valves designing and manufacturing for coal-fired power plants and steel plants. These ceramic ball valves have excellent performance and reputation.
Up to January 2017, PT. PLN (Persero) Pembangkitan Sumatera Bagian coal-fired plant has installed 4 batches, total of 59 pcs pneumatic ceramic ball valves, in their fly ash handling system.
