Blog: Live demonstration of partial stroke testing at Valve World Americas

Stop to listen to new ideas and share your own experiences at the Speakers Corner: Live demonstration of partial stroke testing.

Located in the heart of the Expo Floor, the Speakers’ Corner will host several presenters who will discuss a variety of topics affecting the Valve World today. The Speakers’ Corner will allow expo visitors and exhibitors the opportunity to participate in the interactive seminars and welcome conference delegates to stop and learn about the industry.

During my demonstration in the Speaker’s Corner, I will be showing how partial stroke testing helps customers diagnose the performance of emergency shutdown (ESD) valves. It also improves the cost efficiency of installations that use an external solenoid valve, and ultimately, minimizes the risk of spurious trips with such installations.
