Recent advancements in fracking technology have paved the way for a chemical processing industry boom in the United States. This “shale revolution,” as it’s come to be known, has stimulated the domestic oil and gas processing industry, leading to an increase in the production of consumer goods such as clothing and plastic, as well as an increase in American exports.

img-chemical-industryOnce extracted from the earth, raw natural gas liquids (NGLs) undergo a series of high-intensity processes to convert them into a variety of chemical products such as ethylene, polyethylene, and polyvinyl chloride.

Triangle Pump Components offers a broad selection of reciprocating pump valves, plungers, and components able to withstand the rigorous conditions of this industry.

From pumping volatile chemicals at the beginning of the process to putting the final touches on a consumer-ready product, our reciprocating pump parts — specifically designed for handling caustic fluids — are built to last.

The following Triangle Pump Components products are ideal for use in the chemical processing industry:

  • Durabla® Model V7H Pump Valve — Designed for low net positive suction head (NPSH) applications when plunger pumps lack incoming fluid on the suction side.
  • Durabla® Model V7F Pump Valve — A heavier-sprung valve model to accommodate higher fluid volumes.
  • PlenaFlow® Plate Valves — Double-sprung stem guided valves available with a Delrin®, stainless steel, or titanium plate.
  • WG Sphera™ Series — A stem-guided spherical valve designed to reduce disruptions to fluid flow as well as fluid turbulence.
  • Fortis MC™ Plungers — Available in metal or ceramic material and able to withstand both high and low liquid volumes.
