Zahroof Valves Inc. has added a patent-pending Valve Protection Mesh (VPM) to its product portfolio, introducing a “final line of defense” for the internals and critical componentry of reciprocating gas compressors. Headquartered in Houston, USA, Zahroof Valves offers compressor valves based on its modular reed valve technology. Its StraightFlo valve is a drop-in replacement compressor valve that is made up of replaceable reed valve modules designed so that the gas flows essentially in a straight line through the valve. The replaceable modules eliminate any machining of the valve housing, making it possible to service the valves onsite. Zahroof offers a 10-year warranty on the valve housing and guarantees that the valves will run at least twice as long as competing valves under the same conditions.
