For a valve, zero leakage is defined as no visible leakage when tested at high pressure with water and low pressure with air according to existing international standards. Some of these seat leakage standards for control and isolation valves include ANSI/FCI 70-2/IEC 60534-4, API 598, MSS SP-61 and ISO 5208. ANSI/FCI 70-2 and IEC 60534-4. […]

For plants and mills that use steam in the production process, measuring the steam condensate level accurately can be the difference between operating reliably and fighting unplanned shutdowns. So was the case for a U.S. ethanol producer, Absolute Energy, as told in a story by’s Automation magazine. The story, Technology resolves costly shutdowns at […]
