Cycle Isolation: Monitoring for Better Usage

One of the largest controllable losses in power plants is leakage-based energy loss. These losses, which have been documented at more than 400 British thermal units per kilowatt hours (Btu/kWh) in some cases, are often overlooked because of the difficulty of spotting them in systems that have hundreds of potentially leaking valves.

Managing Valves in EPCM Projects

Engineering, procurement, construction and management (EPCM) is a form of contract agreement between a client (end user) and a contractor. The EPCM contractor is responsible for implementing the various phases of a project, including design, procurement and construction, and providing overall project execution management. Because successful implementation of any project requires balancing cost, quality (scope) and time, successful EPCM means completing a project on time, on budget and with all project requirements met. That translates into a satisfied end user.

Pinch Valves: An Uncomplicated Valve with an Important Purpose

Pinch valves are a simple valve design that uses an elastomeric tube forced together or pinched to stop the flow of media. This force can be applied in a variety of ways: Compressed air or fluid can be supplied directly into the valve housing to force the elastomeric tubing closed or a clamp mechanism can be used that is forced closed, from a manual handle or an actuator.
