The First Annual Combined API Terminal and Refinery Equipment Conference & Expo
This API conference will give attendees an opportunity to learn about new and existing industry codes and standards, and to hear about emerging trends from industry experts. This two-day conference offers over 65 sessions in 3 conference tracks addressing the needs of individuals involved in production systems, pipelines, terminals, refining and chemical manufacturing, and storage facilities.
Our flexible program allows attendees the ability to attend any of the three tracks, and features multiple panels that will help you understand the requirements to maintain terminal and refinery equipment integrity while complying with environmental rules. These sessions are chosen and presented by recognized experts in the field.

Victaulic introduces improvements to the FireLock® Series 745 Fire-Pac. The Victaulic Fire-Pac is a pre-assembled fire protection valve and trim that is pre-wired to a fire alarm control panel or junction box and enclosed inside a metal cabinet. The improvements give customers more options and benefits for installation, maintenance and design.
The new FireLock Fire-Pac design relocates the electrical connection box from atop the cabinet to a location inside the cabinet, creating a lower profile and allowing the 6’5” cabinet to fit through standard doorways for ease of delivery and installation.
The new Fire-Pac can be used in a wider range of operating environments thanks to new insulation and heating components for ambient temperatures as low as 20ºF (-6ºC). The FireLock Series 745 is also weatherproofed to an equivalent of NEMA 4 standards to keep out moisture and dirt.

A new 3D solid model generator, developed by electric actuator manufacturer AUMA, enables customers to generate three dimensional actuator models that replicate their exact, order-specific, configurations. The free service, which allows actuator models to be reviewed from all perspectives before delivery, provides advance verification of actuator requirements during a plant’s design phase.
Complete actuator systems are shown by the 3D models, with all elements detailed including integrated controls, gearbox, and electrical connection. Models can be generated for AUMA SA multi-turn and SQ part-turn actuators with AC and AM integrated controls, plus GS part-turn gearboxes. The service will be extended later in 2014, with the addition of further AUMA components.
The solid models take up minimal file size and can be integrated directly into the customer’s CAD environment. All outer dimensions are automatically included, enabling checks to ensure accurate integration and full compatibility with other plant components.

ITT Corporation’s Engineered Valves brand has launched a new line of hygienic diaphragm valves designed to dramatically reduce maintenance time and total cost of ownership for today’s BioPharm manufacturing facilities. As the latest platform to be added to the Engineered Valves product family, the EnviZion™ valve helps customers install, operate and maintain their systems more efficiently and reliably.
EnviZion’s embedded technologies allow for a more streamlined installation and maintenance process, delivering less downtime, longer preventative maintenance cycles and greater production capacity for manufacturers.
Assembled with a simple mount and turn motion, the EnviZion valve is installed in approximately three minutes without using any special tools or difficult torqueing procedures. The valve’s 360° active seal protection provides leak-free operation, helping eliminate the risk of contamination and the need to re-torque after thermal cycling.
