Webinar: finding and fixing control valves

(Whitepaper)

This webinar, presented by GM Metso ExperTune's George Buckbee and Metso's Business Services Director Jarkko Raty, provides an overview of possible situations and solutions when finding and fixing control valves.

Five Critical Factors for Selecting Fieldbus Valve Manifolds

(Whitepaper)

In today's highly automated machines, fieldbus valve manifolds are replacing conventional hardwired solutions. They more easily perform vital functions by integrating communication interfaces to pneumatic valve manifolds with input/output (I/O) capabilities. This allows programmable logic ...

Wireless Monitoring of Valves

(Whitepaper)

The Need for Wireless Monitoring – An Overview<br> There is a real on-going need for monitoring of valve positions (actuated or manual) in the process line. Malfunctioning of a valve can result in danger to human health and safety, affect yields, and generate environmental risks. In some ...

Electronic Flow Control Valve (EFCV) with Pressure Compensation Capability

(Whitepaper)

A new concept for an Electronic Flow Control Valve (EFCV) with pressure compensation capability is introduced. Based on its embedded sensors and micro controller, the EFCV can provide flow control without the need of load/displacement/speed information from the power elements, like hydraulic ...

Control Valve Handbook

(Whitepaper)

Improved Diagnostics from Decentralized Solenoid Valves and I/O Systems

(Whitepaper)

Information about the health of a control system, the I/O systems, field devices and final control elements can be critical for plant operation and uptime. Timely diagnostic information can mean the difference between a quick repair and hours or days of unplanned downtime.

Technology Transfer Brings New Life to Electric Control Valve Actuation

(Whitepaper)

The limitations of traditional electric actuators have an impact on the life of the system. The most common problem is exceeding the rated duty cycle, causing the motor to burn out. A study done by ExxonMobil and presented in October 2012 at Coking.Com identified wear issues. Download this white ...

Effective Compliance with IEC 61508 When Selecting Solenoid Valves for Safety...

(Whitepaper)

Regulatory modifications in 2010 have raised important issues in design and use of industrial safety systems. Certain changes in IEC 61508, now being widely implemented, mean that designers and users who desire full compliance must give new consideration to topics such as SIL levels and the ...

Flow conditioning improves flow measurement accuracy and reduces process ...

(Whitepaper)

Tab type flow conditioners neutralize the distortion effects of elbows, pipe expansions, valves and more, which affect flow meter accuracy and repeatability.

New Differential Pressure Sensor Incorporates LVDT Technology to Create More ...

(Whitepaper)

Differential pressure (dP) sensors with electronic signal processing are increasing being used to monitor flow, filter condition and level. Since these devices offer linear and accurate output, they are also replacing the differential pressure switch that only support on-off condition and useless...

Ins and Outs of Partial Stroke Testing

(Whitepaper)

Depending on the Equipment, Application, and Test Method, You May Be Able to Extend the Full Test Intervals for SIS Valves. This article is written by William L. (Bill) Mostia Jr., PE, of Exida, League City, Texas. Mostia has more than 25 years experience applying safety, instrumentation, and ...

Logic Solver for Tank Overfill Protection

(Whitepaper)

When a storage facility's tank level rises above safe limits, a logic solver that is part of a Safety Instrumented System (SIS) initiates final elements to restore the process to a safe state. This can include shutting off input feeds to the tank by isolating the pump and closing the input valve....

Weigh Your Instrumentation Options: Switch, Transmitter or Hybrid?

(Whitepaper)

For decades, process instrumentation specifiers have faced the decision whether to use a mechanical switch or a continuous transmitter for a given application. Either type of instrument can be used to effectively control industrial processes and protect equipment and personnel -- and each has ...

Building the digital foundation for enterprise O&M solutions

(Whitepaper)

With the advent of FDT/DTM technology, process manufacturers’ options for monitoring and managing field devices over digital and wireless networks are wide open.

Proper Employment of Guided Wave Radar in Steam Loops

(Whitepaper)

This paper will address the application of Guided Wave Radar (GWR), also known as Time Domain Reflectometry (TDR), in your steam loop. Included will be discussions of how this technology functions and differs from more traditional forms of level indication.</p> <p>The heart and soul of any boiler...

Fieldbus diagnostics, without fieldbus

(Whitepaper)

Digital fieldbuses are often justified on the basis of the benefits of advanced diagnostics. This paper investigates alternative technologies to capture diagnostics, without replacement of any field devices. The alternative method is field-proven and costs a fraction of the cost of fieldbus.

The ins and outs of I/P transducers

(Whitepaper)

I/P transducers are relatively simple devices, but there are numerous factors to take into account before selecting one. This paper provides a complete understanding of the factors involved in making the correct product selection, installation, and maintenance.
