Prabhat Behera from Occidental (Oxy) shared insights and lessons learned from a wellhead electrification project. Puffer-Sweiven’s Jack Lee and Emerson’s Damian Trujillo joined him to provide additional context on the successful project.
Role of Intelligent Electric Valve Actuators in Digital Transformation
In a Process Industry Informer article, Flow Control – The Current State of Industrial Digital Transformation and a Look to the Future, Emerson’s Knut Riegel highlights the challenge of lacking predictive maintenance information.
Smart Electric Valve Actuators for Improved Performance
Emerson’s Knut Riegel shared in this video how smart electric valve actuators accelerate connectivity with plant information systems to support digital transformation initiatives. The electric actuators support electrification efforts and the elimination of fugitive emissions to support sustainability initiatives.
Reliable and Maintainable Intelligent Electric Actuators
In this 3:35 YouTube video, Bettis XTE3000 Electric Actuator, Emerson Impact Partner, Puffer-Sweiven’s Erin Lipman, describes how this intelligent electric actuator provides reliable and maintainable operation even in the harshest environments.
Eliminating Methane Emissions and Improving Control Performance
In an Oilfield Technology article, Switching on to Electric Control Valves’ Potential (pp. 54-59), Emerson’s Scott Losing and Andrew Prusha describe how electric valve actuators have advanced to replace pneumatic actuators driven by natural gas.
Electric Valve Actuator Diagnostics, Configuration and Monitoring
Emerson’s Roman Kudinov alerted me to a YouTube playlist of quick, less than 2-minute videos that show the capabilities of diagnostics, configuration and monitoring in the DCMlink Software for electric valve actuators. DCMlink collects data from electric actuators, provides connectivity to plant level asset management systems, helps users interpret performance data, assesses health condition of devices, and optimizes maintenance activities.
Electric Valve Actuator Educational Video Series
Valve actuators drive the movement of valves either in on/off, modulating or control service. These actuators can be powered manually, pneumatically, hydraulically or electrically. For electric actuators, there is a great, educational YouTube series, Introduction to Valve Actuation and Electric Actuators.
Fail-Safe Electric Actuators for Quarter-Turn Valves
In this 16:19 YouTube video, Bettis RTS Fail-Safe Quarter Turn Electric Actuator Basic Technical Overview, Emerson’s Aaron Roepke provides a product overview and demonstration of certain configuration and setup steps including user interface rotation, user interface navigation, variable speed adjustment, and mechanical fail-safe speed adjustment.
How to Setup Keystone Actuator Mechanical Limits
As part of Emerson's acquisition of the Pentair Valves and Controls business, the Keystone brand of valves and actuators joined the final control area of Emerson Automation Solutions. Over on the Bettis YouTube channel, is a great series of videos in setting up...
