Key Asset Integrity Management (AIM) Methodologies

Traditionally, industrial plants have followed prescriptive run‐repair‐replace approach for managing and maintaining their assets and equipment. While this strategy had been working for end-users, they realize that it is not the most cost-effective strategy. End users have begun to better realize the contributions of proper inspection and maintenance in keeping physical assets in good working conditions to avoid business interruption and improve profitability as well as plant safety. End users are taking informed approach to planning inspection and maintenance to maximize asset output while maintaining asset integrity.

Digital Transformation Enables New Performance Management Solutions for Intelligent Valves and Pumps

While digital transformation has been getting its fair share of hype in recent years, end users in the heavy process industries actually began digitizing their plants decades ago with the introduction of “smart/intelligent,” digitally integrated process transmitters and final control devices.  However, historically, pumps and valves have tended to be the last field devices for end users to digitize in their plants.
