ABB will collaborate with Dresser Masoneilan on an integration process to monitor, test, and manage emergency shutdown valves during all operational conditions. These include normal plant operations to abnormal situations in oil, gas, and petrochemicals.
The combined solution leverages capabilities of ABB’s 800xA high integrity Safety Instrumented System and Masoneilan’s SVI II emergency shutdown device and PST Controller to improve overall plant safety and increase availability of ESDVs for optimal response of the isolation valve in emergency situations.
The integration also simplifies safety compliance by automatically recording partial stroke test results and emergency shutdown events to save time and costs while increasing efficiency, it’s noted.
