The FLIV was designed by Bestobell Valves back to eliminate the problems associated with gate valves that were used to isolate the secondary float level measurement equipment from the cargo tanks.
The FLIV has a compact design compared to a gate valve and also includes an integral inspection chamber from which the float can be serviced, thus eliminating the need for a separate fabricated component.
The new contract for FLIVs is with Bestobell's Chinese partner, Valseal International Ltd, on behalf of Hudong Shipyard in Shanghai, China.
