Valve Saver AW – Valve Cleaner/Lubricant

Valve Saver AW is a combination valve cleaner and lubricant designed to lubricate and clean deposits common to valves in pipeline and production valves. Valve Saver AW can be used as a valve cleaner and as a lubricant. Valve Saver AW consists of a premium quality Anhydrous Calcium base grease, blended with a proprietary additive package that includes a dispersant/surfactant. This unique compound will lubricate the valves’ internal components and at the same time, emulsify a variety of organic and organometallic compounds common to pipeline operations. When used regularly, it will prevent additional build up of pipeline contaminants. The anhydrous calcium base grease provides good lubrication qualities over a wide temperature range of -65° to 250°F.

Valve Saver AW is compatible with the following elastomers:

  • Polytetrafluoroethylene
  • Teflon
  • Perfluoroelastomer
  • Kalrez
  • Chemraz
  • TFEPVDF-Terpolymer rubber
  • Viton
  • Fluorel
  • Chlorinated Butyl Robber and Butadiene Rubber
  • Isoprene Rubber
  • Epichlorohydrin copolymer rubber
  • Epichlorohydrin terpolymer robber Polysulfide rubber
  • Chlorosulfonated polyethlene rubber

Features

  • Compatible with all valve lubricants
  • Cuts gum and lacquer deposits
  • Penetrates rust and corrosion
  • Do not use in oxygen service
  • Temperature range: -65° to 250°F

Features

  • Compatible with all valve lubricants
  • Cuts residual gum and lacquer deposits
  • Removes rust and corrosion
  • Do not use in oxygen service
  • Temperature range: -40° to 400°F
  • Cone Penetration ASTM D217 280-330
  • Flash point open cut 243°F
  • Flash point closed cup 213°F
  • Dropping Point 350°F
  • 60 month shelf life when stored in a cool dry climate
  • 10000 PSI working pressure
  • Non-Toxic

Application Procedure

Apply Lubchem Valve Saver with conventional lubricating equipment. Turn valve slowly and repeat the process until valve opens freely. After the valve is operable, lubricate with one of Lubchem’s high quality valve lubricants.

Lubchem V-Clean – Liquid Valve Cleaner

Lubchem V-Clean is a complex blend of surfactants, dispersants and wetting agents designed to thoroughly clean clogged sealant pathways in ball, plug and gate valves. V-Clean will lift deposits of oils, greases (hydrocarbon and synthetic), salts, asphaltines, paraffin, and other solid debris (including corrosion products) from the surface of the metal. V-Clean will displace water and hold the debris in suspension allowing it to be flushed from the system using a Lubchem V-Clean Flush Pump or other suitable pumping equipment.

Application Guidelines

V-Clean should be used as supplied, no dilution is necessary. V-Clean should be pumped into the valve at a rate sufficient to force the liquid into contact with the entire surfaces to be cleaned. The volume of V-Clean required per cleaning job varies depending upon valve condition and size. However, to estimate chemical requirements, use approximately 1 quart of V-Clean per 4 inches of the diameter of the valve for plug valves per seat for ball valves. For gate valves, use a sufficient quantity to fill the valve body and flush the seats when possible. The reaction time for deposit removal varies by deposit, as a general rule, allow the product about 15 minutes to dissolve the deposit, repeat the procedure until the desired performance is obtained.

Typical Properties

  • Color – amber liquid
  • Odor – mild
  • Flash point, F – > 200
  • pH – 12
  • Solubility
    • Water – soluble
    • Oil – dispersible

V-Clean is available in:

  • Part number – packaging
  • VC21 – 6/1 gal. plastic bottles
  • VC29 – 5 gal. pail w/pour spout
