Emerson Impact Partner Applied Control’s Julia Imhoff and Miranda Hunter teamed with Renaissance Technologies’ Terry Wilford to discuss a novel way to avoid catalyst damage for a highly exothermic reaction.
Valves, Actuators & Regulators
Innovative Rotary Valve Trim for Severe Service Conditions
Emerson’s Justin Lannin and Vinson Process Controls’ Mike Stinn teamed up to present, Hex & The City: Ponca City Refinery Reduces Maintenance with Fisher Cavitrol Hex, at the 2022 Emerson Exchange conference.
Reduce Waste & Increase Efficiency in Clean-in-Place Processes
While the idea of adding costs to a food and beverage or pharmaceutical industry process like Clean-in-Place/Steam-in-Place (CIP/SIP) has not traditionally been an easy decision, in today’s industrial environment that has changed. With the retirement of experts, the...
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.
Avoiding Actuator Damage from Failed Components
Riyaz Ali discussed with a major international oil company ways to eliminate supply line relief valves or needs for higher pressure-rated actuators should the air filter regulator (AFR) fail.
Partial Stroke Tests and Diagnostics for Emergency Shutdown Valves
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.
Actuation Solutions for Constrained Spaces
Milan Rakita’s “Why Compact Actuation Solutions are Ideal for Constrained Space Installations” article discusses how a vertical profile actuator is providing new opportunities for space-constrained applications.
Clarifying Rebuilds to Extend Valve Lifespans
I received a question from an earlier post, End of Life Expectancy for Final Control Elements in Safety and Control Systems, by Emerson’s Riyaz Ali. The instrument & control engineer who came upon the blog post wrote…
Driving Combined Cycle Efficiency Gains
At the October 24-28, 2022 Emerson Exchange conference in the Dallas, Texas area, Emerson’s Justin Goodwin will co-present Steam-Atomized Attemperation: Duke Energy Hot Reheat Attemperator Successes.
Control Valves in Safety Instrumented Functions
When is it possible to use control valves like final elements for SIS [safety instrumented system] application? I am looking for other useful documents and technical requirements when it is possible to use only control valves as the final element instead of on/off valves and not in combination with it in the SIF [safety instrumented function] application.
Valve Stem Sealing Best Practices
The Emerson Exchange 365 community post, Article: Proper Valve Stem Sealing Best Practices, by Emerson’s Mark Nymeyer recaps the Intech article by Lisa Miller, Proper Valve Stem Sealing Best Practices.
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.
