While high reliability clearly entails high availability, what is less obvious is that reliability also enhances sustainability. In this October 2023 issue of InTech, titled “Executive Corner: Reliability Through the Lens of Sustainability,” explains why.
Valves, Actuators & Regulators
Digital transformation of field instrumentation can spark one’s imagination with new concepts, including the possibility of data harvesting from automated on-off valves. Automated on-off valves are typically used in a basic process control system (BPCS) or safety instrumented system (SIS). In these and other automation systems, they must function properly to optimize performance, availability, and reliability. The data provided by smart on-off valves can be used to increase uptime, reduce maintenance costs, and improve safety.
I’ve often written about how digital valve controllers improve control valve performance and ongoing maintenance. But how about on-off valves? In this Valve World Americas featured story, How Digitized On-Off Valves Improve Operations, Emerson’s Riyaz Ali explains how...
In a CHEManager International article, Innovative and Disruptive Automated Valve Package offers Decarbonization Solution, Emerson’s Knut Riegel shares how advancements in valve actuation technology fitted on isolation and shutoff valves have enabled reduced emissions.
Leaders worldwide continue to pursue hydrogen as a dependable energy carrier in the global energy mix. But hydrogen, as a light gas, has challenges in the supply chain from production through ultimate use as an energy carrier. Challenges that Emerson has addressed include hydrogen embrittlement, permeation, and leak detection to make the transportation and consumption of hydrogen blended gases a safe and eco-friendly reality.
In refineries and petrochemical plants, frequent contact with process media can result in premature corrosion of valves and related components. To help prevent this, vendors can provide expert advice and, in some cases, lab testing to verify compatibility between...
Choosing a valve maintenance company that you can trust is difficult. During a shutdown or outage, you want your plant back up and running as quickly and safely as possible, while staying within budget and completing reliable repairs. Here are some tips from an...
With Clarkson KS1 knife gate valves from Emerson, the improvement was dramatic and immediate. After 8 months, the new valves remain in service, never having required a repair or change out. The installed cost of each valve was less than $27,000, so the project paid for itself in just over two weeks, and it has been generating nearly $10,000 per week in savings since.
Here’s a brief 1:40 YouTube video, Treating control valve noise with Fisher Whisper technology, that shares how the bar continues to be raised for control valve noise reduction by reducing sound pressure levels to a manageable level with Fisher Whisper technology. More innovations to come!
Sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) is a renewable alternative to the fossil fuels that have historically powered most aircraft. Compared to conventional fuel production, SAF production poses particular challenges for control valves. Below is a summary of our article in...
Mark Nymeyer of Emerson, cowrote this article regarding the importance of control valve selection for semiconductor ultrapure water applications. Read more to understand silicon chip manufacturing, keeping ultrapure water ultrapure, and control valves for ultrapure service. #controlvalves #water
