Flowserve Corporation, a leading provider of flow control products and services for the global infrastructure markets, has expanded its revolutionary industrial IoT service suite, RedRaven – giving companies even greater insight into the performance of their flow control systems by now offering valve-specific capabilities.
With RedRaven IoT solutions available for both pumps and valves, companies can now monitor valve health to proactively identify and address issues before they cause downtime.
Using multiple connectivity options, RedRaven monitors valve performance trends and alerts users when a valve deviates from normal operating conditions. The RedRaven solution is also manufacturer agnostic and works with most plant’s existing digital positioners – meaning it can monitor hundreds of valves across large industrial facilities without expensive infrastructure, installation and/or additional hardware costs.
“We understand that companies around the world are looking for ways to streamline their operations while balancing the challenges associated with aging equipment, complex datasets, and limited equipment-specific expertise and maintenance personnel,” said Tauseef Salma, Vice President, Global Marketing & Technology. “With RedRaven’s capabilities for both pump and valve equipment now, companies can have greater insight into their holistic flow control system while also better meeting their sustainability goals through increased energy efficiency and uptime.”
RedRaven communicates both the health and performance of valves throughout a facility. Equipped with data-enabled insights across multiple locations, users can make significant improvements to enhance equipment efficiency and reduce associated carbon emissions.
RedRaven IoT valve services also provide insight monitoring, which gives users a detailed view of valve health through an online cloud portal and offers users greater access to experienced Flowserve technical and service professionals. With RedRaven’s expanded capabilities and increased span of monitoring for both pump and valve equipment, companies can have a more comprehensive view of their flow control system, helping to further increase uptime, lower maintenance costs, and improve safety and reliability.
