    Flow Blog: Accurately Measuring Flow in Slurry Applications

    Slurry flows are common in many process industries including metals & mining, pulp & paper, and oil & gas. Wikipedia defines a slurry as: …a mixture of solids denser than water suspended in liquid, usually water. The most common use of slurry is as a means of transporting solids, the liquid being a carrier that is pumped on a device such as a centrifugal pump. Laura Chemler Measure the flow of these slurries...

    Valves Blog: Exercising Solenoid Valves in Safety Applications

    Joe McHugh Valves used in safety applications tend to stay in opened or closed positions for very long, time intervals. As Emerson’s Joe McHugh explained in a Plant Engineering article, Double up on solenoid safety : …all valves experience stiction if they remain inactive for too long. (Note: Stiction is the friction that tends to prevent stationary surfaces from being set in motion.) These valves must be moved...

    Valves Blog: A Strategic Partnership Driving Valve Operational Performance Improvement

    Jaime Miller Manufacturer and producer reliability teams focus much of their efforts around the large plant assets including pumps, compressors, and control systems to maintain efficient and reliable operations. Valves, actuators and regulators often don’t get this same attention. Yet, these final control elements can have a major impact on the performance of the process. I caught up with Emerson’s Jaime Miller about...
