ServicesDynamic testing of valve performance
Offline valve testing with position feedback

Offline dynamic performance testing of control valves can be useful when the process is not running and the dynamic performance of the control valve is critical to stable process operation. This type of testing can also be used as part of a standard quality and performance program for new or repaired valve assemblies.

 

Enero Solutions helps operations teams optimize the tuning of valve assemblies or identify valves that need to be repaired or replaced with the Enero ValveTester. The ValveTester sends a user-defined 4-20 mA valve position command signal and measures valve position feedback and any other relevant actuator signals.


Offline valve dynamic testing helps determine the following valve dynamic parameters:

  • Valve Deadtime
  • Valve Time constant
  • Valve Backlash
  • Valve Friction
  • Frequency Response
