Identifying and Minimizing Fugitive Emissions from Control Valves
Control Valves would control ideally the process without any interface to the outside. Although, that’s not practical with today’s technology. Control valves are by design an interface between the process and the outside. This interface can cause some level of...
Improving Control Valve Response Specifications
Control valve response is a critical factor in successful control strategies and process variability. In a ControlGlobal.com article, Responsible control valve response, Emerson’s Greg McMillan and James Beall discussed the efforts underway to include valve responsiveness into the ISA 75.25 Control Valve Dynamic Testing standard.
Digital Transformation for Sustaining Control Valve Performance
In a LinkedIn essay, Transform to Valve 4.0: Digital Control + Analytics, Emerson’s Jonas Berge describes how the performance of control valves can be more effectively managed and maintained for better operational performance.
Digital Valve Services for Improved Operational Performance
This short 3-minute video, Digital Valve Services, highlights a portfolio of tools that provide operational data that is supplemented by OEM expert support to help keep valves operating as expected.
Control Valve and Control Performance at Instrumentation Symposium
Instrumentation and automation professionals in the oil & gas industries along the Texas Gulf Coast have an excellent resource in the annual Instrumentation and Automation Symposium for the Process Industry. The 71st edition of this 3-day symposium will be held...
Quick Hit Path to Plant Optimization
For U.S. refiners, the bulk of project spending is on core business drivers including safety, environmental performance, and reliability programs. Projects that optimize performance and improve energy efficiency often don't make the cut. At the AIChE National Spring...
Ongoing Control Performance Improvements
I caught up with Emerson's James Beall, a principal process control consultant who helps manufacturers optimize their processes. You may recall James from numerous control performance-related posts. If you ever attend an Emerson Exchange conference, James is one of...
