Markus Gandelheidt - IMI Z&J
The move from historical based Hydraulic Actuation to high-performance Electric Actuation can reduce Delayed Coker maintenance needs. Two success stories, i.e. Statoil Mongstadt and Petron Philippines show how process control can be tracked to improve unheading performance. The “Feed-Back” data collected from both plant operation and our valves are integrated into smart PLC systems that using simple visualization methods can support preventive maintenance of the unheading equipment.
