Dresser Masoneilan (www.dressermasoneilan.com) is proud to announce the release of the next generation ValScope-PRO – a diagnostic tool for control valves with digital and conventional positioners.
The ValScope-PRO helps users identify problems through a scientific evaluation of valves during operation. Since the tool is portable, machine operators can troubleshoot valves in harsh environments and in-line to determine the valves that should be removed. A graphic interface enables machine operators to see the valve as it is giving a real-time analysis and being tested. The equipment is also compatible with analog, HART and Fieldbus communication protocols.
“Many customers would like to know whether a valve needs to be pulled or if it can be repaired in line, and they don’t want to have to wait for test results to be reviewed and analyzed by an outside source,” said Gary Ostrowski, director of product management aftermarket of Dresser Inc’s Flow Technologies Segment. “The new generation ValScope-PRO is one of the easiest and most powerful test systems on the market today, providing real-time analysis that helps customers to save time and money by allowing them to plan ahead for repairs and shut downs.”
The ValScope-PRO is very easy to install on any control valve in a facility. A touchscreen interface is featured in the tool to enable simple operation. Advanced data processing functionality allows the machine user to view information clearly and quickly through a “medical record” report.
The ValScope-PRO system offers advanced diagnostic capabilities and can test over 35 different criteria, such as profile, step response, frequency and deadband.
