Description: Automated valves and control valves are key contributors to instrumentation unreliability and case of substantial money loss. This workshop is intended to bring the criteria together to discuss, debate and identify better ways to realize a proper “Fit for Purpose Valves” sizing and selection process. The workshop will discuss way to identify the “high performance” valves during the FEED stage and the fact that not only control valves but also solenoid and automated block valves need to be considered.

The workshop will focus on understanding valve flow behavior such as cavitation, flashing and choked flow as an essential criterion to size and select FtP and how having effective engineering tools that tell you, even during the FEED stage, that reliability is at stake, is a great asset.
