Automated Valves: Optimization of Process Control and Profits

The eBook is a compilation of educational articles written by the world renowned process engineering expert, Günter Öxler on automated valves.

Companies across the process, resource, and public utility industries appreciate the financial, operational, and even environmental benefits of automated valves. In order to stay competitive in the global marketplace, these companies know they need to modernize and automate their production processes to increase operating efficiencies. By transitioning from manual to automated valve systems, these companies experience the immediate and long-lasting impact that automated valves have on the ease of use, reliability, speed, and cost- effectiveness of their flow processes.

“Our eBook, Automated Valves: Optimization of Process Control and Profits, provides useful guidance for engineers who are designing for efficiency and cost-containment,” observes Bill Farrell, president of Assured Automation. “We have supplied engineers with valve automation, including electric, mechanical and pneumatic actuation, analog and digital positioners, switches and controllers, as described in Öxler’s educational materials,” he adds. “Our Valve Automation Center provides unique custom solutions meeting the most stringent requirements for high performance and cost-effective valving solutions.”

Topics covered in the eBook include:

  • How to prepare butterfly valves with pneumatic part turn actuator for shipment and storage
  • Horizontally vs. vertically applied butterfly valves
  • Double eccentric butterfly valves
  • Process control valve operation under power shut-down / black-out conditions
  • Scotch yoke or rack-and-pinion pneumatic part-turn actuator?
  • How to design process valves with adjustable speed control for the opening and closing sequence
  • How to operate valves absolutely fail-safe without a power supply or control system
  • Manual operation and manual override
