The API meetings are conducted twice a year: spring and fall. This year’s spring meeting was in Chicago; several weeks later than it has been in the past, but at least we weren’t snowed in like last year’s fall meeting. There were a record number of attendees; in the order of 150+ in the committee meetings.
U.S. refiners are shifting their output mix to increase the gasoline production share and reduce the distillate production share, which is increasing gasoline inventories and beginning to reduce the gasoline crack spread—the difference between gasoline futures prices and crude oil. Monthly average gasoline crack spreads are now lower than they were last year, according to the U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA), the second consecutive month of year-over-year declines. While distillate crack spreads are also lower than last year, they are only 3 cents per gallon (gal) lower than the five-year average and have increased 9 cents/gal over the past two months. Changing gasoline-to-distillate production ratios are a contributing factor in the difference in crack spreads.
We offers Straight, Angle, Cross, Union Bonnet & Line Mounting types of industrial needle valves that are used in flow metering applications. These industrial needle valves such as stainless steel needle valves, brass needle valves, high pressure needle valves meet the constant, calibrated, low flow rate need. The use of SS316 / SS304 / CS Brass / Monel also available with MR-01.75 standard, makes these brass, monel, stainless steel needle valves and high pressure needle valves durable and rugged in use.
The key difference beteween a floating ball valve and a trunnion mounted ball valve is how each achieves a line seal. Trunion mounted ball valves are uses a spring mechanism and/or line pressure assistance to drive the upstream seat against the stationary ball. The surface area exposed to the pressure through the relatively small passageway is actually just the back of the seat.
We are very excited to have finally launched our new website! A few of our goals with the new website were to make it faster, easier to navigate for users, and easier for us to manage/update
