Taking Care of the Customer
Today, older plants that were originally designed to be base loaded are being cycled more frequently. In some cases, plant assets are being used in ways beyond their initial design criteria. This places additional demand—and stress—on much of the equipment, including critical service valves. With this heavy use, valves may require additional attention to help prevent any unplanned maintenance events.
Emerson has introduced upgrades to help in many of these situations: valve trims with tighter shut-off, protected seat upgrades, and more robust sealing technologies. In addition, diagnostics programs allow us to understand the health of the valves without any disassembly or invasive service. The combination of Fisher™ FIELDVUE™ positioners and Fisher™ FIELDVUE™ ValveLink™ software gives us the tools to provide you with a health report on your valves without even loosening a single bolt.
