Zahroof Valves, Inc. (ZVI) today announced that they have been named a finalist for the 2018 Petroleum Economist Awards in the category of “Technology Company of the Year”. The winners will be revealed at the awards ceremony on November 27, 2018 at One Great George Street in London.

Founded in 1934, the Petroleum Economist Awards celebrate the people, companies and projects that epitomize the best of the energy industry. Recognizing innovation and originality, sound business practice, and commitment to environmental protection and employee welfare, these awards are the best in class for the sector.

Zahroof Valves Inc. (ZVI) develops and markets a unique and groundbreaking reciprocating compressor valve based on the Modular Reed Valve technology invented by its President and Founder, Zahroof Mohamed. The StraightFloTM Valve (SFV) is a drop-in replacement compressor valve that is unique in that the valve assembly is made up of replaceable reed valve modules that are designed so that the gas flows essentially in a straight line through the valve, with very little deviation resulting in very low losses in the valve. ZVI has 43 patents granted and several pending on nine different technologies in thirty-one different countries.

“We are proud to be among the company of so many organizations that are committed to driving innovation in the energy industry,” said Mohamed. “This honor of recognition is a testament to the entire team at Zahroof Valves, and our continuous effort to provide cutting-edge solutions that benefit and grow the industry as a whole.”

ZVI has been designing and manufacturing compressor valves since 2010. Its award-winning StraightFlo Valve performs much more reliably and efficiently than its competition and can significantly reduce emissions and carbon footprints. The metal housing has a 10-year warranty that is unheard of in the industry; valves can be serviced on site, easily, without any machining required. Such technical innovations have garnered the company various awards and recognitions. It won a 2016 Edison Award in the “Carbon Reduction” category, won second place in the Houston Business Journal's 2018 Fast 100 Awards, was considered a “Rising Star” as a finalist in Platts 2015 Global Energy Awards, was named an “Energy Innovation Pioneer” at IHS CERAWeek 2015 and was the 2013 recipient of the Land-based Pipeline Technology Award via the Pipeline Industries Guild.
