Valve Automation Solutions for Emergency Shutdown in Shale Applications

13 sum shale 1In many regions of the U.S., the proliferation of gas and liquids discovered and extracted from shale formations has created a need for rapid infrastructure development. Valves and their automation play key roles at every stage of processing and transporting the gas and fluids—from the well to the storage facilities and distribution systems. This means they are vital in providing safety to personnel, process control for operations and protection for valuable assets as well as prevention or mitigation in the case of environmental events.


Using Advanced Sealing Technologies to Prevent Fugitive Emissions

13 sum sealing tech 1Regulators’ 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: It allows an entity to avoid noncompliance or adhere to the low-emission consent decrees.

Opportunities and challenges in the LNG process

13 sum LNG tanker1Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) is exactly what it says: the liquid form of natural gas. The process of liquefying is performed to reduce the volume for purposes of transporting the fuel: LNG reduces volume by 600 times, making it much more economical to transport by sea aboard LNG carrier ships to destinations all over the world.

Finding the Source of All that Noise

13 spr noise collageProcessing plants today do everything they can to increase efficiency and productivity. Frequently, that involves operating at higher temperatures, pressures and flow rates, which means higher pressure differentials across critical control valves as well other conditions that generate more noise. While this noise has always been a problem, it is even more so in today’s high-throughput processing plants.
