The nation’s nuclear energy industry has deep roots that have always been focused on reliability and safety.
Subsea development includes different types of activities such as exploration, drilling, completion and production.Subsea manifolds are the arrangement of piping, valves, connections, structures and the foundation used in the subsea production system to receive, combine and distribute the hydrocarbon fluid

The issue is that assemblies are not currently treated as “engineered” items — they are often produced by slapping the actuator on the old (or new) valve specified by the piping requirements without much understanding of the specifics of the interactions between valve and actuator connections through the drive train (coupling).
Since the early days of water and wastewater treatment plants in the U.S., municipalities and industries have continued to expand and upgrade existing plants and distribution infrastructure as well as build new facilities.

The topic of cybersecurity usually brings to mind data breaches that impact financial or private information, stolen intellectual property or disruption of major events such as political elections.
While presenting in a recent VMA Valve Basics 101 Course in Houston, I found myself in a familiar role: explaining solenoid valves (SOVs) to attendees. (I work with solenoids so much that one VMA member at that conference joked that I needed to be wearing an I Heart Solenoids t-shirt). During the hands-on “petting zoo” portion of the program, which involves smaller groups of attendees, one of the most frequently asked questions I get from people came up: What’s the difference between direct-acting and pilot-operated SOVs, and how do we make a choice?

The error output from a control valve can come from a variety of sources: uncontrolled input pressure, uncontrolled input flow rate, inaccurate orifice size or turbulent flow through the system which causes irregularity of flow rates through the system.
