The MEA Phoenix provides a complete, tailored hydraulic actuator solution for DCU valves, including Wilson Snyder® switch valves. Its coke drum feed switch valve process is fully automated, allowing operators to complete delayed coking operations accurately—and safely—by simply pushing a button. Although the initial cost may be higher, the Phoenix offers drastic long-term savings over the life of the valve through its longevity, durability and simplicity.


In addition to DCU valves, the Phoenix provides features that make it suitable for a wide range of applications: overhead vapor valves, coke drum switch valves (lift & turn and ball types), multiple coker gas oil pump valve types, upheading & deheading hydraulic valve actuators, and hydraulic power units for use with decoking tool winches, to name just a few.
