Spirax Sarco, the leader in products and services for steam system solutions has released its latest White Paper entitled “Valve Maintenance – Preparing for the Plant Outage” which explains the recommended methodology for the planning, performing and reporting valve maintenance during a successful plant outage.
As production and utility plant areas prepare for upcoming maintenance turnarounds (TAR), outages, and shut-downs, effective planning can save time and curtail expenses associated with the testing, repair, and replacement of control valves within the plant’s total valve population. Effective planning is also a key component to smoothly managing both internal maintenance employees and externally contracted technicians that will be performing the work. Manpower resources make up a large portion of the total expenses associated with the outage so organization becomes just as important as those planning processes.
The paper will be of interest to industries that have a control valve population – including healthcare, food and beverage, chemical processing, oil and petrochemical and institutional markets that perform plant outages for scheduled maintenance.
