A local power plant was having issue with clogged nozzles. The nozzles that spray the ammonia to neutralize the NOx began to clog forcing the customer to take the units off line. Because of this, they were not able to produce power at peak time to their customers. Valin designed and assembled a turnkey filtration system that consisted of 10 filtration assemblies with filter housings (for pre-filtration and final filtration), a differential pressure gauge, drain valves on the bottom of filter housings, inlet and outlet valves, and a support stand.

A leading manufacturer of semiconductor wafer fabrication equipment was in need of a filter manifold (skid) for their new N2 on-site generation unit.  The manufacturing company develops innovative solutions that help their customers build smaller, faster, more powerful, and more power-efficient electronic devices.  They use these tools to produce tiny, complex chips for cell phones, computing devices, and entertainment gadgets. The manufacturer of those tools requires them to house on-site nitrogen generators and canisters to store the gas produced from these generators.

A manufacturer of natural gas fired steam generators contacted Valin regarding a problem they were having with contamination.  The company used a competitor's product but the local filtration expertise and product availability was becoming a problem between the company and their customers. Valin delivered a new filtration solution that provided a higher confidence in the purity of their gas, and reduced the number of filter cartridge kits that they will need to keep stocked in inventory.

An aerospace manufacturer contacted Valin regarding a filtration issue they were having in the production of their aircraft brakes. Due to the hazardous material the filter is capturing, the filter is required to be disposed of by an approved hazardous waste facility. The expense of this process was considerable; rebuild costs from the factory, freight costs to and from the factory, and labor costs to dismantle and clean the spent filter cartridge. We presented a unique custom Valin solution: A two-part system requires the initial purchase of a reusable 304SS Filter Support Cartridge and then repeat business for the Slip on Removable Media Pleat Pack.

Valin worked with a refinery that was processing approximately 145,000 barrels (5.7 million gallons) of crude oil per day – enough to fill a 17-foot-deep swimming pool the size of a football field. The refinery has a 2 Column Jet Fuel Clay Treater that came online in 1960 with a treat rate of 750 GPM.  This technology is very inefficient and outdated.  The nature of this old design does not optimize the contact time of the Jet Fuel with the Clay and often results in Channeling through the Media.

While reviewing accounts, one of Valin’s regional sales managers noticed that a refinery customer had been consistently increasing purchases of filters and housing units for a reactor feed application. In speaking with the engineers, he found out about a major issue they were having with the filters. They showed pictures where the filters were prematurely blinding due to large particulate and when investigating the source of the contaminate, we found they had a pre-filter feeding the main filter housing.
