Introducing Innovative Technology to Valve and Actuator Industries

In deeply conservative industries, the introduction of new products or technology is subject to a particular circular logic. Users only want new products that have had significant use in real-life situations, but this experience can’t be obtained until users procure and install the new product. This conundrum can be overcome by careful marketing communication of the procedures used to validate the technology and the advantages to be gained by its deployment.  MORE

From the Spring Issue…

Smaller Electric Actuators Fulfill Expanded Needs

The conventional perception of a motorized valve is one of a large isolating valve with a heavy-duty actuator. However, many processes require smaller valves, and those valves need smaller actuators for isolating and modulating applications.  MORE

The Case for Magnetostrictive

Today’s petrochemical and process industries require feedback not only for valve position monitoring but also for automated control of actuators. Among the new technologies employed to manage this now are magnetostrictive linear displacement transducers.  MORE

Summer Issue Preview…

Improve Valve Life and Plant Efficiency Through Smarter Pump Operation

The notion that oversized pumps are an investment in the future productivity of the facility has led to the installation of many oversized pumps. According to recent studies, the average pump efficiency is less than 40%. This is largely due to valve throttling and over-sizing.

Best Polymers for Seals and Seats in API Valves for LNG applications

The valve industry faces a host of challenges today ranging from extreme temperatures and aggressive media to fire safety and fugitive emissions. High-performance thermoplastic materials provide a solution for many of these issues.


VMA Hits the Road This Fall

What do WEFTEC, Power-Gen and Valve World have in common? Their upcoming shows will include exhibits by the Valve Manufacturers Association.
