Hydraulic Shuttle Valve
ABCO Subsea’s Andy Boyd patented the first Multi-Input Shuttle Valves more than 30 years ago. Today, ABCO Subsea's shuttle valves are installated on over 20 percent of the world's deepwater drilling fleet, making the company one of the world's largest providers of BOP shuttle valves to the offshore industry.
ABCO Subsea’s hydraulic shuttle valves have a modular design with port orientations that can be rotated in 90° increments, allowing our customers flexibility in unitizing their valves on a BOP stack. Our valve bodies are manufactured in stainless steel and internal working spools and plugs are manufactured in naval bronze.
Our standard valves are designed and tested to a 6,000 psi rated working pressure, but higher ratings are available for custom applications. Input ports are available in several standards, including NPT, SAE, Autoclave and UN O-Ring. Valve sizes range from 1/4" to 1.5".
Under normal use, ABCO Subsea's valves have a long life expectancy in the field. Our customers have recently returned valve components for re-certification that had been deployed for more than 20 years.
ABCO Subsea offers training and certification courses on the maintenance and assembly of its BOP hydraulic valves.
