Check out the video

Jarkko Räty (Director, Business Solutions, Services) is interviewed during Valve World 2014 Expo (Dec 2 - 4, 2014) on the topic of his Conference paper, 'Optimizing valve maintenance using condition analysis'.

Excerpt from the paper abstract: 'A challenge in targeting for higher plant availability and performance is to share limited valve maintenance resources between failures already disturbing process and on preventive work to avoid such failures. This requires systematic approach and finding the right balance between different maintenance strategies. In shutdown planning one of the biggest challenges is determining which devices will be adjusted, repaired or upgraded, and ensuring that key devices requiring attention are not ignored.' http://metso.com
