Flowserve can trace its expertise in the pumps industry back to the 18th century and the earliest application of steam pumping engines. Since then, Flowserve has grown into a driving force in the global pump marketplace. No other pump company has our depth or breadth of expertise in the successful application of pre-engineered, engineered, and special purpose pumps and systems.
Flowserve centrifugal, positive displacement and specialty pumps and systems are key components in the worldwide oil and gas, hydrocarbon and chemical processing, power generation and water resources industries, as well as the general process and industrial marketplace. Flowserve pumps play a leading role in clean energy, greenhouse gas reduction and potable water supply efforts, along with the application of advanced production and process technologies.
Flowserve offers the world’s most extensive lines of ISO 13709/API 610, ISO 2858 and ASME B73.1 compliant designs, along with pumps designed to nuclear, JIS and other globally recognized design standards. In addition to offering more than 100 distinct pump models, Flowserve also provides its customers unequaled engineering and technical support, with the industry’s most progressive hydraulics, mechanical, materials, monitoring and diagnostics capabilities.
Flowserve has been trusted for more than 80 years to design, manufacture and distribute mechanical seals, sealing systems and parts to customers worldwide. Our collection of mechanical seals is supported by strong aftermarket services, and provides users with safety and environmental benefits.
Flowserve seals are used on a variety of rotating equipment, including pumps, compressors, mixers, steam turbines and other specialty equipment. They have application in the oil and gas, pharmaceutical, chemical processing, mineral and ore processing, and general industries.
We take pride in our ability to help customers improve reliability, make a positive environmental impact and reduce operating expenses. One of our key strengths is our unmatched ability to deliver engineered seal product orders within 72 hours of a customer’s request. Our worldwide, industry-leading Rotating Equipment Specialist program educates our engineers through hands-on and theory-based training courses, ensuring that our customers will receive outstanding service each and every time they do business with us.
Whether it’s critical, lethal, toxic or aggressive, you’ll find Flowserve valves doing the job around the world. That’s because extended service life, safe operation and environmental protection are at the core of every valve we manufacture. Global customers can easily find the configurations they require, engineered to meet requisite performance and safety standards, whether it’s a standard or custom-engineered solution. It’s a portfolio of brands for quarter-turn, rotary, linear, control and specialty configurations that covers today’s toughest demands for valve performance. But we’re looking ahead to the new challenges that will test the current state of valve manufacture. This mindset pushes us to continually pursue advancements in materials and severe-duty enhancements and the next levels of precision control, optimized flow and fail-safe shut-off.
Actuation and Instrumentation
For well over half a century, customers working with applications from the extraordinary to the everyday have come to depend on actuation and instrumentation from Flowserve. Flowserve comprises the industry’s most complete range of actuators, positioners, controls, switches and accessories - all complemented by our comprehensive research and development, engineering and global support services. From electronic positioners and level switches to remotely controlled, fully automated electric, hydraulic, and pneumatic actuators, Flowserve offers a range of intelligent flow control solutions for every application. By coupling our control solutions with real-time system analysis, predictive maintenance, and remote service capabilities, we deliver end-to-end intelligence that has no equal in the industry.
Energy Recovery Devices
Global demand for clean water continues to accelerate. Safe, reliable and cost-effective desalination solutions are increasingly important to many communities. The energy-efficient and scalable design of the seawater reverse osmosis (SWRO) process makes it the leading choice for municipal and commercial water supply. Flowserve offers you energy recovery solutions that are among the most efficient and reliable in the world.
Energy is generally the biggest cost driver in any SWRO desalination facility, thereby making energy recovery equipment critical to the process. Flowserve is a world leader in the manufacture and supply of the most efficient energy recovery devices for the SWRO desalination process. Through its Calder™ brand, Flowserve offers two types of energy recovery technologies: isobaric devices and energy recovery turbines. Together they have more than 30 years of experience and have recovered more than 750 MW of energy.
In addition to minimizing your current power usage, both of these technologies help minimize the impact of future energy cost increases.
Flowserve has been in the vanguard of decoking for delayed coker units since the technology’s inception in 1938. That year, a Flowserve heritage company, Worthington Pumps, designed the first high-pressure coke cutting pumps, decoking control valves and coke cutting tools.
Today, Flowserve continues to be the innovative leader and is the overwhelming supplier of choice for advanced decoking systems. More than 95% of the world’s decoking units — over 160 installations globally — have been outfitted with our decoking system. Process licensors, engineering and construction firms, and DCU operators alike turn to us for proven applications expertise and problem-solving capabilities.
Flowserve has transformed decoking into an increasingly reliable, efficient and automated process. Whether new equipment or system upgrades, we continue to advance decoking technologies to maximize unit reliability, minimize unit maintenance costs and realize fail-proof unit safety. Drum monitoring and the AutoShift cutting tool, along with significant advancements in associated equipment design, now make remote operation possible. And, the addition of modern instrumentation, controls and software enable system automation that results in reduced cutting times with greater throughput, maximum reliability and lowest total cost of ownership.
Flowserve’s decoking system is fully integrated to optimize output, increase reliability, and provide unparalleled personnel safety.
The rich history of Flowserve heritage brands spans more than 200 years and serves as the foundation for Flowserve solutions today. Flowserve is the recognized world leader in supplying pumps, valves, seals, automation, and services to the power, oil, gas, chemical, and other industries.
