Digital valve monitor designs increase partial stroke testing

A large-scale MIddle East-based oilfield installation employs SVM Smart Valve Monitoring system as a "networked solution for digital valve monitoring and partial stroke testing."

SVM delivers predictive maintenance data from widely distributed areas for use by operators to reduce shutdowns and improve overall plant efficiency.

The system integrates into existing Ethernet and fiberoptic infrastructure. At the facility, this feature enables over 100 monitored valve actuators on wellheads at numerous locations - to be networked over distances of 10 km or more.

SVM also enhances partial stroke testing in safety instrumented systems. Operators identify possible failure modes on a shutdown or emergency shutdown (ESD) valve - without need to completely close the valve and disrupt a process. PST is an accepted hydrocarbon industry standard technique that is quantified in detail by such regulating bodies as ISA and IEC.
