This 2:22 YouTube video, Emerson TopWorx DX PST with HART 7, explains how this partial stroke and emergency shutdown valve controller controls and monitors these shutdown valves. To test the capability of the valve to perform its safety action, the valve controller can partially stroke the valve that maintains its open or closed position for an extended time.

Electro-Hydraulic Valve Actuator Operation
This video provides an overview of the principle of operation for Bettis Electro-Hydraulic Operator (EHO). These self-contained actuators are designed to actuate quarter-turn valves to provide fail-safe actuation for Emergency Shut Down (ESD) valves.
Airset Regulators: Understanding a Critical but Often Overlooked Link in Safety Systems
Engineers who design safety systems are always mindful of a few basic truths: Anything can fail, so there should always be a backup. And sometimes, backups need backups. Looking at how this concept applies to pneumatically operated emergency shutdown (ESD) valves, and other similar on/off valves, is the main topic of Emerson’s Jeff Welch’s article in the November 2020 issue of Chemical Engineering.
Valve Actuators for Safety Shutdown and Small Applications
One of the world's leading spots to learn about new developments in industrial valves, valve actuators and fittings is the Valve World Expo. This event was held last month in Düsseldorf, Germany. During this event, Emerson launched two new products: the Bettis EHO...
Hydraulic Partial Stroke and Diagnostics on Emergency Shutdown Valves
I've discussed partial stroke testing (PST) as a diagnostic for the health of a valve in many posts over the years. These posts describe flow applications found in most process manufacturing facilities. But what about high-pressure and hydraulic applications including...
