Background

TRC series tubing-retrievable charged safety valves meet stringent technical, quality, and operational requirements. Their ratings, features, and long, successful track record make these valves the most reliable on the market.

  • The valves are insensitive to production tubing pressure, eliminating the need for high-pressure hydraulic systems.
  • Hydraulic control redundancy increases reliability, reducing the need for workovers.
  • The bubble-tight flapper exceeds the industry's highest leak-rate standards, ensuring wellbore integrity in the event of emergency.
