Dresser Masoneilan® Announces the Launch of the Next Generation Valscope®-Pro Portable Control Valve Diagnostic Tool
Tool Helps Customers to Diagnose Control Valve and Positioner Performance In-Line
HOUSTON - Dresser Masoneilan® today announced the launch of the next generation ValScope®-PRO, a diagnostic tool for control valves with both conventional and digital positioners.
The ValScope-PRO helps customers identify problems by providing a scientific evaluation of valves in operation. The tool is portable, enabling users to troubleshoot valves in-line and in harsh environments to determine which valves need to be removed. A graphic interface allows users viewing the valve as it is being tested and providing real-time analysis. The ValScope-PRO is compatible with analog, Fieldbus and HART 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 for the Flow Technologies Segment of Dresser Inc. "New generation of 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."
ValScope-PRO is designed to address key areas that are important to customers including:
User Friendly - The ValScope-PRO is easy to set-up on any control valve anywhere in a facility. The touchscreen interface enables simple operation, and advanced data processing functionality allows a technician to view information quickly and clearly through a "medical record" report.
Ability to Test Valves and Positioners In-Line - By being able to test valves in line, customers can pre-order replacement parts, remove valves from service only when necessary and return valves to service quickly. Additionally, ValScope-PRO enables positioners to be checked and calibrated inline.
Advanced Diagnostic Capabilities - The ValScope-PRO system features advanced diagnostic capabilities and is capable of testing more than 35 different criteria, including profile, deadband, step response and frequency. Tests can also be sequenced to run automatically.
Access to Proven Technical Expertise - Dresser Masoneilan authorized service professionals have years of technical expertise in analyzing valve signatures collected with the ValScope-PRO system.
