Integrated sensors can provide valuable information on fluid management and valve characteristics.
Temperature, pressure, flow rate, leaks or contaminant presence are some of the parameters that can be monitored by ISS. Combining process parameter monitoring with valve data monitoring will allow valuable insights into the performance and efficiency of the valve.
Remote Control Valve Monitoring System is a patented innovative system, developed in-house for monitoring valve performance. A Data Acquisition System provides life-cycle assurance, periodic reports (data analysis, valve state evaluation and recommended actions for operators/end users), an alarm system and supervision and diagnostic services. The design is independent of any type of actuator/manual operation systems and so can be incorporated in any make and model of valves.
All data transfers are encrypted using state-of-the-art asymmetric key cryptography. Remote system configuration can be disabled, which means it is impossible to open/close the valve remotely, making the AMPO RCM compliant with cybersecurity requirements.
Several qualifications & certificates guarantee AMPO RCM robustness for the most “common” plant operations.
