MULTPORT VALVE SKID

A multiport valve selector skid is a specialized equipment assembly used in industrial processes, particularly in the oil and gas industry. It is designed to facilitate the selection and routing of various fluid streams through different process lines or equipment.

The key component of a multiport valve selector skid is the multiport valve itself, which typically consists of a valve body with multiple inlet and outlet ports. These ports are connected to various process lines, vessels, or other equipment through piping or tubing.

At Technitas Pvt. Ltd. has over several years of experience in the design and detail engineering of a multiport valve selector skid, while each skid is unique , we notice that most Multiport Valve skids would typically comprise of the following components:

 

➣ Multiport valve: The central component of the skid is the multiport valve, which features a valve body with multiple inlet and outlet ports. This valve allows for the selection and routing of fluid streams through its various ports.
 

➣ Valve actuator: The multiport valve is equipped with an actuator mechanism, such as a pneumatic or electric actuator, that operates the valve to direct the fluid streams through the desired ports.
 

➣ Piping manifolds: The skid includes inlet and outlet piping manifolds that connect the multiport valve to various process lines, vessels, or equipment. These manifolds are typically arranged in a compact and organized manner to minimize the overall footprint of the skid.
 

➣ Instrumentation and controls: The skid incorporates various instrumentation, such as pressure gauges, temperature sensors, and flow meters, to monitor and control the fluid streams passing through the skid. Additionally, a control system, which can be a local panel or integrated into a larger control system, manages the operation of the multiport valve and actuator based on process requirements or operator inputs.
 

➣ Sampling connections: In some cases, the skid may include sampling connections or ports to enable the collection of fluid samples from various streams for analysis or testing purposes.
 

➣ Skid structure: The entire assembly is mounted on a skid or base, which facilitates transportation, installation, and relocation of the unit. The skid may also include access platforms, stairs, and lifting lugs for safe operation and maintenance.

During the design and detail engineering stages, our team ensures that the multiport valve selector skid is fit for its intended operational purposes, which primarily are:-

 

➣ Stream selection and routing: The skid allows operators to select and route specific fluid streams to the desired process equipment or lines, enabling efficient process control and flexibility.
 

➣ Sampling and blending: The skid can be used to divert fluid samples from various process streams for analysis or testing purposes and, in some cases, to blend or combine multiple fluid streams in controlled proportions.
 

➣ Switching and maintenance: The multiport valve configuration provides the ability to switch between different process streams or equipment, enabling maintenance, cleaning, or process reconfiguration without disrupting the overall operation.
 

These skids are commonly used in applications such as well testing, production separation, process sampling, and fluid routing in refineries, chemical plants, and other industrial facilities where efficient and controlled management of fluid streams is essential. The compact and modular design of the skid allows for easy installation, relocation, and integration into existing or new process systems.
