Rotork SVM Delivers Networked Solution for Increased Partial Stroke Test Functionality
The Rotork SVM (Smart Valve Monitoring) system has been selected to provide a networked solution for digital valve monitoring and partial stroke testing on a large scale oilfield installation in the Middle East.

The SVM field control units on this project are attached to the ESD circuits for shut off valves installed in sets of two and four on more than fifty wellheads. Analysis is performed on the SVM server computer in the centralized control room. Communication between the wellhead sites and the computer is fully integrated within the operator’s existing network infrastructure. The SVM field units are incorporated into the Ethernet network that links other equipment and instrumentation at each wellhead site.

Water hammer is a shock wave transmitted through fluid contained in a piping system.
These days, piping designers use automated systems that default to standard classifications such as pressure classes of 150 to 2500 for valves and associated equipment.
When the pressure inside equipment such as boilers or pressure vessels increases beyond a specified value, the excess pressure may result in a catastrophic failure.
