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.
