Hydraulic Actuated Valves

Delta Hydraulic Actuator (DHAV) is designed to be used in conjunction with Delta valve bonnets to provide open and close control for major brands of API 6A through conduit reverse acting gate valves fitted to oil and gas wellheads and production flow lines.
Suitable for offshore and onshore locations and ideal for use in H2S and CO2 applications, the Delta range of hydraulic piston actuators provides a simple and reliable valve automation solution. The DHAV is available in 2.1/16" through 7 1/16" nominal valve sizes with various pressure ratings.

Hydraulic Actuated Valves

Operating Principle

Valve actuation is achieved by applying a hydraulic control pressure to a piston in a closed housing thereby exerting a force which compresses springs and extends a valve stem. This action is designed to open a reverse acting gate valve (or close a directing acting gate valve).
The valve is returned to its fail position upon release the piston pressure. The actuator ensures that a fail position is achieved through the use of valve body pressure acting on the valve stem diameter assisted by a coiled springs. The springs provides rapid and reliable valve shutdown when there is little or no valve body or flowline pressure available.
The hydraulic actuator can be supplied to API 6A SSV to meet the quality assurance and test requirements of API 6A and Q1. The standard actuator must be supplied to meet the NACE MR0175-2003 requirements.

The Self Contained Surface Safety Valve uses hydraulic fluid pressure generated by a manual hand pump, its major use is to protect facilities from the effects of pipeline failure and abnormal conditions.
The Surface Safety Valve system is designed for remote shutdown of wellheads or flowlines that encounter a high or low pressure condition. It is operated by High and Low pressure pilots sensing the flow line pressure which enters to the system through a tap in the upstream flange of the valve.
The optional ESD emergency shutdown system can be used to enable field operators to shut down the flow line at any desired time during production, testing or maintenance operations.

Design Features

    • Fail-safe-spring return requires manual reset.
    • All valve primary seals are metal-to-metal with replaceable elastomeric back-ups.
    • Closed condition of valve is indicated by extended stem.
    • Valve can be manually locked in open position.
    • The pressure fluid is clean and isolated from flow line fluid.
    • Internal actuation parts are kept clean and isolated from sour environment and solid particles.
    • Reverse gate action.
