Innovation at the heart of StocExpo 2015

Published:  18 February, 2015

StocExpo 2015, the largest dedicated event for the world’s terminal operators, oil companies, traders and regulators, returns on 17-19 March at the Ahoy, Rotterdam, with over 200 leading international suppliers, all looking to showcase their latest innovations to the wider market.

The event has attracted exhibitors from across the supply chain. Here are just a handful of the technologies being displayed at the show:

For those looking for the newest tank technology, Protego will be introducing its PM-HF pilot-controlled pressure and vacuum relief valve. The PM-HF allows pressure settings of up to 15 psi to be made and boasts an extreme seal-tight capability. The valve is now available in a soft-seating configuration and can be put to service in applications where temperatures are as low as minus 196°C.

Elmac Technologies will be exhibiting its new LCA and LEA series of flame arresters, designed to prevent the spread of pipeline explosions in their initial stages, when flame velocities and associated pressures are at their lowest. The new ranges minimise the impact of using a flame arrester on the process, meaning higher flow rates are achievable with smaller flame arresters, plus they are small, light and easy to maintain.

Safety is always a key factor within the tank storage sector, so the FUXS stand is a must see. On display will be its eXess Floating Roof solution, which can extinguish tank storage fuel fires by stopping the flames, and reducing temperature and energy. It combines an aluminum mesh and fire suppression product with a high quality foam product, which smoothers the fire and prevents oxygenation.

The StocExpo 2015 exhibition runs alongside a two day conference programme, which boasts 30 global authorities from the bulk liquid storage sector. Experts from companies such as TanQuid GmbH & Co. KG, Mercon, UBS Bank, TopTank, Oiltanking North America and Petrol Storage Broker will focus on opportunities for growth in the tank storage industry, illustrate current changes in terminal safety regulations and finally outline ways to improve current efficiencies, costs and profits.
