Control valves have always been a hot topic in process plants because they can cause unplanned, costly shutdowns if not maintained properly. But when do you know when it’s maintenance time? Traditional approaches have been to do it at regular intervals, use the experience of the maintenance crew or opt for a time-based maintenance approach. Today, however, diagnostics and analytics data is much more easily accessible, which makes it possible to move from reactive to predictive and eventually prescriptive maintenance.
Listen to today’s episode where Don Mack and Jonas Norinder talk with Frank Fortino about valve monitoring and how it can improve process control, enable better maintenance planning and minimize those dreaded unplanned shutdowns.
