The details.

The litigation involved defective 48 inch diameter tilting double disc gate valves used in an isobutane to isobutylene vacuum catalyst conversion process. The failure resulted in property damage to Global Octanes' valves, reactor internals, catalyst, catalyst support system, and associated downstream equipment. The loss also caused MTBE production business interruption.
