PUMPS & VALVES RESOURCES
Valve Health Diagnostics
Valves are one of the most common assets in the process industry, spanning all verticals. Chemicals, refineries, and petrochemicals, however, will find improved valve health diagnostics useful for critical valves and controllers in their plants, while upstream and midstream oil and gas companies may be focused on much larger, critical valves like pipeline or subsea valves. Using Seeq, process manufacturers are able to implement a condition-based monitoring analysis to monitor valve health across an entire fleet. Engineers can utilize the historical data to accurately create a predictive maintenance forecast and preemptively detect valve failures before they occur.
Greener Pastures Ahead For Pumps
Energy-saving pumps will be ever more present in 2021 as investment in eco-friendly infrastructure continues to grow.
Pump Selection 101: Understanding Essential Criteria To Maximize Reliability And Efficiency
Pump systems play a critical role in keeping our world in motion. However, specifying parties can often overlook opportunities to improve pump system reliability and efficiency. This can happen when designers or engineers fail to consider new demands placed on the system since installation or understand the benefits of available options.
Submersible Pumps Sales Soar On Back Of Digitization And New Initiatives On Wastewater Treatment
The global submersible pumps market size will expand 1.5X in the coming decade. Submersible pumps are emerging as the preferred pumping technology across various end-uses, including wastewater management and oil & gas manufacturing. Submersible pumps are considered ideal for applications involving highly viscous fluid that require proper elimination of vapor cavities.

The Southern Iowa Rural Water Association (SIRWA) provides quality drinking water to the residents and communities of southwest Iowa. Included in its 4,000 miles of pipeline is a 16-mile, 12-inch line that runs from the city of Creston to Corning.
Victor Valley Turns To Xylem To Recover From Mojave Desert Environmental Catastrophe
During any given year, average rainfall in the Victor Valley of Southern California is approximately five inches. But 2010 wasn’t the average year.
Xylem’s Bypass Enables Critical Upgrades For Aging Sewer Lines In Greenwich, Connecticut
Greenwich, Connecticut, located in the tristate area immediately surrounding New York City, is a scenic New England town that is home to approximately 60,000 people.
Xylem Provides Pumping & Control Equipment To Reduce Force Main Pressure
HRSD, the regional wastewater treatment utility that serves 18 cities and counties in southeast Virginia, had been experiencing high-pressures in their Williamsburg area force main network during wet weather events. These high pressure events caused operational trouble and, on occasion, resulted in SSOs in the collection system.
Historic Rains In Memphis Lead To Monumental Emergency Bypass
Record rainfalls in Memphis, TN eroded the soil supporting a 96-inch sanitary sewer main, causing the line to fail. With nearly 40 million gallons per day (MGD) of raw sewage escaping into Cypress Creek, less than a mile from McKellar Lake and the Mississippi River, an emergency bypass was needed fast to facilitate the repair work on the 96” sewer main.
