Parker Bestobell Marine has launched a new compact version of its Float Isolation Valve (FLIV). The compact FLIV, which is 150 mm dia. x 600 mm high, was developed to cater for the use of smaller diameter floats that are now being specified by shipyards for secondary level monitoring systems on LNG carriers
Duncan Gaskin, Sales Director at Parker Bestobell Marine, said: "It is really exciting to be launching our new compact FLIV. Our original FLIV valve has helped us secure a large market share in supplying LNG carriers and this latest version is set to meet demand going forward.”
The FLIV is installed on top of the cargo tanks of LNG carriers and isolates the gauge and float from the cargo tank. These valves prevent boil-off gas (BOG) from the cargo tanks.
Parker Bestobell Marine’s first FLIV was supplied to an LNG carrier in 2007 and since then has been fitted to over 120 LNG carriers.
