Challenge
A major natural gas producer had small gas plants scattered across the Permian Basin that incorporated a variety of automated valve applications. These packages contained solenoid valves that controlled the plants’ process media. Deliveries from the company’s valve suppliers had slipped to an unsatisfactory 4 to 6 weeks. Plus, the customer was consolidating its valve supplier base to simplify inventory requirements and achieve better service.

Results
With its broad range of products, ASCO could offer a fluid automation solution that met all of the gas producer’s solenoid valve needs.  The package included ASCO’s new 362 Series spool valves, plus additional ASCO 2-way and 3-way solenoid valves. ASCO’s 1- to 2-week lead times significantly reduced gas plant downtime and maintenance costs. In addition, the customer is benefitting from ASCO’s higher valve flow rates and local technical support. The gas producer is now moving to ASCO products throughout its operations.

Benefits

  • Offered a comprehensive valve portfolio from a single supplier
  • Cut lead times from 6 weeks to less than 2 weeks
  • Reduced gas plant downtime and maintenance costs
