Fugitive Emission Compliance  Requirements for Valves
Minimizing the potential for leaks by applying proper design and material-selection standards is the first step in emission prevention.
Calculating the effect of finishes, coatings and alternative materials through simulation can optimize material selection.
Healthy Control Valves
A simple maintenance routine can help ensure trouble-free valve operation.Whether the control valve in your system is the first one that has required maintenance or if you are experienced with...
Positive displacement (PD) pumps do not function well if the discharge is blocked. Unlike centrifugal pumps, they have little tolerance for flow restriction. A piston pump will try to continue...
Improve Control Valve Performance for Greater Process Reliability
A valve positioner positions the valve in response to input signals from the process control system (or programmable logic controller). Most systems currently use either analog 4-20 mA or digital...
In-Valve Metering Reduces Equipment Requirements, Improves Accuracy
This technology is useful in applications where flow meter space is limited.
