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 must be eliminated.
ValvPerformance Testing® is a non-intrusive acoustic inspection process that ascertains valves’ leakage levels during operation. MCE technicians conduct the on-site survey covering 75 to 100 valves per day. The results are then analysed by specialists at ValvTechnologies head office in Houston, and a technical report is issued outlining the impact of the leaking valves on plant unit efficiency in terms of fuel savings (costs and fugitive emissions). This allows customers to take restorative action.
