June 24, 2010 – Dresser Masoneilan has been awarded $10 million in control valve contracts in China for CPR-1000 reactor plants under construction in Hongyanghe, Ningde, Yangjiang and Fangchenggang. Dresser Masoneilan will provide the four nuclear power plants with Variable Resistance Trim (VRT) control valves, offering high controllability, extended valve life and maximum cavitation protection. The alternating plate segments in the VRT control valve provide smooth throttling control and seamless continuity in flow control. The increasing flow area yields high capacity and provides precise control when operating near the seated position. In low-flow conditions, the valve can be engineered to provide cavitation protection while also providing high capacity when cavitation protection is no longer required. “Our customers rely on us to help them improve plant operations with the technical advantages and reliability our products offer and the comprehensive after market support we provide” said Eric Strecker, vice president of sales, Asia Pacific, Dresser Inc. “These contracts are the result of customer relationships that have been in place for more than 15 years and our deep expertise serving the nuclear power industry.” Dresser Masoneilan is one of few control valve suppliers in the world that can comply with the full scope of products and stringent certifications required for the nuclear power industry. The division’s differentiated technologies, such as the V-LOG and LincolnLog Energy Management Trim designs, form the ideal control valve solution for general service through severe service applications. Dresser Masoneilan is also able to provide customers with technical expertise and support at the local level through its global network of fully equipped aftermarket centers.
