The next step in Final Element safety – the integrated remote actuated valve!

Recording Date: September 2019

Plant engineers know that many field failure reports show root cause due to errors in final element design and testing. A rigorous engineering process to design, verify, and test can catch errors in a remote actuated valve assembly before shipment and deployment. This rigorous process should also include the design of an effective proof test with good procedures. This webinar will show some example field failures and how they can be avoided by a rigorous integration process. The result is a decrease in realistic failure rate of the remote actuated valve assembly. Examples will show the positive impact on the risk reduction factor.
