A highlight at Adipec will be the Digital Valve Kit, which provides plant operators with remote access and remote control of their valves as well as the ability to monitor the current health status of the installed valves
AS-Schneider will be presenting its new dynamic solution, the Digital Valve Kit — an expansion of its static digital valve solution Digital Product Pass — at this year’s Adipec.
In addition, the industrial valves specialist will be showcasing valves for hydrogen and high-pressure applications as well as their customised injection quill solutions for oil and gas applications.
Starting a few years ago, AS-Schneider has been offering customers the Digital Product Pass for valves, which fulfills the requirements of IEC 61406 (DIN SPEC 91406).
The valves and manifolds are marked with a unique QR code to provide easy access to static product information like technical specification, activity - specific docs, individual drawings, certificates, and spare parts.
Having recently joined the Digital Data Chain Consortium, AS-Schneider will now move this to the next level by norming the data according to VDI 2770 and providing the data package via a cloud-based information exchange platform.
DIGITAL VALVE KIT
In addition to the static Digital Product Pass, AS-Schneider is currently working on the Digital Valve Kit (DVK), a dynamic solution to sense or capture data.
The DVK provides plant operators with remote access and remote control of their valves as well as the ability to monitor the current health status of the installed valves.
It provides all alerts to the maintenance team in a timely manner. This enables them to react in time and initiate further measures at an early stage.
The DVK is compliant with all industry-relevant standards, such as NAMUR standard.
VALVES FOR HYDROGEN APPLICATIONS
For more than 20 years, AS-Schneider has been offering valves and manifolds supporting the media hydrogen. Its portfolio is suitable for up to 100 per cent hydrogen service.
The instrumentation and piping valves can also be used safely in natural gas applications with, for example, a 20 per cent hydrogen blending.
This feature is particularly interesting for natural gas plant operators and gas network operators who want to convert their natural gas pipelines for hydrogen.
The selection of a suitable material for use with the hydrogen medium and the tightness requirements for the hydrogen medium can be very complex depending on the application. AS-Schneider, therefore, recommends to all plant operators to seek expert advice.
CHEMICAL INJECTION QUILL FOR OIL AND GAS APPLICATIONS:
An injection quill or sampling quill with an integral DBB valve and check valve is pretty much a custom designed product.
From a simple fabricated tube/probe to an integrated assembly with isolation valves and non-return valves with custom length and dimensions, many variations are possible.
'This is where AS-Schneider comes into play. We assist you here and support you in evaluating all relevant factors that have to be taken into account when selecting and installing an injection quill,' says Umar Mukthar, Sales Director Middle East and Africa, AS-Schneider.
VALVES FOR HIGH PRESSURE APPLICATIONS
Instrumentation requirements are increasing due to new oil and gas production techniques used in deep-water offshore and onshore enhanced oil recovery operations.
These often require higher pressure levels, which the valves must be able to withstand.
Therefore, users need robust, durable, and reliable valves for safe and accurate measurement results.
For such tough scenarios, AS-Schneider’s high-pressure valves are designed and tested for superior pressure-performance for all critical applications. The valves allow leak tight shut-off, and thus provide more safety.
The company will be presenting a live demo of the DVK at the Adipec in addition to the availability of its hydrogen experts at the event.
AS-Schneider is exhibiting at Booth 8840, Hall 08, at Adipec.
