PLUG-IN Valstaff by Azbil improves the efficiency of control valve maintenance operations through control valve management and online diagnostics.

The software package consists of a control valve maintenance system that supports the decision-making necessary for control valve maintenance and increases maintenance efficiency. It runs on the same PC as one of two device management systems: InnovativeField Organizer (IFO, an Azbil Corporation product) or Plant Resource Manager (PRM, a Yokogawa Electric Corporation product).

PLUG-IN ValstaffFeatures include:

  • Online diagnostics for control valves while the plant is operating. PLUG-IN Valstaff's online diagnostics support early detection of abnormalities by indexing control valve conditions numerically to help reduce the number of problems caused by control valves.
  • Automated stroke testing for control valves, which makes maintenance more efficient and reduces the load on plant workers during shutdown maintenance.
