TULSA, OK, Apr. 27, 2009 -- Tulsa based Flow-Quip Inc. has been selected by PEMEX Mexico to supply four Hydra-PAK SE Series fail-safe electric actuators capable of storing energy for two strokes of each valve without electrical power.

PEMEX is doing an expansion and upgrade of the JPC Maya Crude Oil Dehydration Facility at Dos Bocas Marine Crude Oil Marine Terminal in Tabasco, Mexico.

Flow-Quip's valve actuators, supplied with four 36" ANSI 150 full port pipeline ball valves, will be installed on a pipeline to the 600,000 bbl/day capacity facility.

Flow-Quip President Milton Fore said, "These are critical pipeline inlet and outlet shut off valves that must operate in case of a facility shutdown, even if electrical power is not available. Flow-Quip's over 30-year history with valve actuators enables us to customize actuator solutions for clients like PEMEX."

Flow-Quip Inc. is a Tulsa-based manufacturer of valve actuators and valve automation systems for applications and industries world-wide.
