Description: Control valves are key contributors to the instrumentation unreliability in our process plants and cause of substantial cost. Root cause analysis revealed that high performance valves are higher contributors to unreliability than “standard” valves and the dominant reason for this unreliability stems from a Less Than Adequate (LTA) sizing and selection process.
This workshop is intended to discuss and identify the “high performance” valves during the FEED stage, interface bi-directionally in batch mode to IDDS (instrumentation design & documentation system) tools, calculate the thermodynamic properties necessary to address valve flow phenomena like incipient and severe cavitation, flashing, choked flow, etc, and yield reliability indicators over the full valve working range.
