Sound effects and cavitation

Just as sound can have negative effects on the human body, certain frequencies can play havoc on industrial equipment. When control valves are not selected appropriately, there is an increased risk for cavitation, which causes high noise and vibration levels. This does more than just degrade valve performance and damage the valve. Downstream piping and equipment is also at risk, and process contamination can ruin the product that the process is intended to make. Predicting cavitation and taking steps to eliminate it is the only way to avoid a costly and ongoing problem. MORE

Greater Plant Efficiency through Positioner Innovation

Today’s smart valve positioner technology makes it possible to enhance performance of a myriad of assets by providing plant operators with a better understanding of how valve and control assets are performing in the field. Combining these performance analytics with valuable diagnostic data and robust communications protocols allows plant operators to schedule preventive maintenance and maximize efficiency and output from existing facilities. MORE

Using Advanced Sealing Technologies to Prevent Fugitive Emissions

Regulators’ monitoring of emissions has forced industries to either implement proactive programs of leak detection and repair (LDAR) or deal with implications of non-compliance, which include fines and consent decrees. In either case, advanced sealing technology can help, and state-of-the-art metal bellows have been proven effective throughout the world in thousands of installations. While metal bellows are more expensive than traditional packing methods, the monetary savings provided by reducing the loss of process to the environment, as well as the increase in process uptime with less frequent shutdowns, far outweighs the additional cost.
