Leaking valves are costing power plants £M’s in lost energy and maintenance downtime. Fugitive emissions are also a major factor in certain industries and so must be eliminated.
ValvPerformance Testing™ is a non-intrusive acoustic inspection process which ascertains leakage levels in valves whilst in operation. MCE technicians conduct the on site survey which can cover 75 valves per day. The results are then analysed by specialists at ValvTechnologies head office in Houston and a technical report issued outlining the impact of the leaking valves on plant unit efficiency in terms of fuel savings (costsand fugitive emissions). This allows customers to take restorative action.
Payback of 0.01 years is not unusual.
