Functional safety calculations are valid only if the right valves are selected
In IVS 2019, Metso’s Ville Kähkönen, responsible for industry management in valves, will also present a paper ‘Lifecycle of the ESD valve – Install-and-forget device?’ on Thursday, May 23 at 10:30 a.m. The presentation will cover how to maintain ESD valves properly to ensure performance and fulfill the original safety requirement specifications.
ESD valves are widely used in refineries, petrochemical sites and LNG plants around the world. Top-level safety and field-proven reliability are the requirements for valve solutions. Making the correct final element selection is a vital part of a plant’s safety throughout its life cycle. Valve selection should always take into consideration an application-based view, which will guarantee that valves continue to work in emergency situations.
