Managing Aging Plants Conference & Expo 2017

Improve your plant availability over its life cycle

The focus of this special exhibition is to help preserve industry in Europe by offering a better understanding of how to plan for a profitable future. As Metso aims at helping customers improve their plant's availability over its entire life cycle, our experts will be there to present our solutions on how to do this for ageing plants. Our special areas of expertise cover chemical, petrochemical, refinery and industrial gas facilities. We are happy to discuss with you how to optimize valve maintenance efforts to improve your plant's process safety and performance.

Many industrial plants currently in operation in Europe are about to reach, or have already exceeded, their expected lifetime. Although they remain productive, many solutions exist for plant managers to further enhance the productivity, safety and profitability of these facilities. Our focus is specifically on providing answers to these current challenges.

Plant reliability improvements by valve performance review

Come and hear our expert Jarkko Räty speak on the following topic, ‘Plant reliability improvements by valve performance review’ on Monday, May 22 at 15:30.

As a Service Solutions Manager Jarkko Räty knows that valves are key elements in control and that their reliability can be affected by issues such as wearing, stress and shocks. During his presentation he will therefore give update on ways to maximize device performance, such as outlining an easy approach to condition based maintenance, considering excessive valve movements, challenges of small valve openings and consequences of sticky valves. In effect, he will be explaining how to recognize those valves which need to be added to the shutdown list and how plant reliability can be improved through valve performance measures.

During the 2-day event, our service experts will be available at the Metso stand S05. They are pleased to explain more about Metso's Intelligent Maintenance and Shutdown services, which are always tailored to meet critical customer needs with ageing plants in the best possible way.
