Blog: About valve monitoring and the Internet of Things

Metso presentation at Valve World Americas Conference on Tuesday, June 20th at 11:00 am: Valve monitoring and the Internet of Things

Process Control Systems are uniquely positioned to leverage the Internet of Things (IoT). They are already gathering and historizing massive quantities of data in real-time. Much of the talk about IoT has been equipment-related, with monitoring of machines, turbines, compressors, and other large equipment. This presentation addresses the monitoring of control valves in industrial settings. The presentation will show practical examples using IoT principles to monitor thousands of valves.

The presentation will cover practical issues, such as data access, cyber security, and especially what to do after you identify these valves with issues. Examples will also show how the resulting reports and analytics can be used for reliability measures and other business results. We will take you from the identification process through options for online diagnostics of individual valves and help to pinpoint issues and streamline the maintenance approach.
