Smart control valve positioners improve performance, predictive maintenance

June 21, 2019
Control Valves should be a part of any effort to optimize efficiency and capacity

Control valves have a significant role in many operations, and thus, they should have a similar role in any efforts to optimize efficiency and production capacity. As a result, smart valve positioners have gained in popularity, reports Badger Meter’s Jim Braxton in a recent article.

While providing highly accurate positioning of the valve actuator, smart positioners also handle data and diagnostic functions, Braxton says. Additionally, integrated digital communications provide greater visibility and control.

Braxton digs in further to explain how advances in control valve positioner technology can lead to better performance and predictive maintenance on our sister website,
