ABB and Dresser Masoneilan to collaborate on ESD valve integration

By Gerald Ondrey |

ABB (www.abb.com) will collaborate with Dresser Masoneilan (both Houston; www.dressermasoneilan.com) on an integrated process to monitor, test and manage emergency shutdown valves (ESDV) during all operational conditions, from normal plant operations to abnormal situations. These valves are crucial process elements for the oil, gas and petrochemical industries, as well as many other industrial processes. “Our collaboration with industry leaders like Dresser Masoneilan helps us to offer our mutual customers best-in-class safety solutions that will protect the integrity of their processes and the surrounding community,” says Luis Duran, Americas Business Development Manager for Safety Systems, ABB. The combined solution leverages the capabilities of ABB’s 800xA High Integrity SIS (safety instrumented system) and Masoneilan’s SVI II ESD (emergency shutdown device) and PST Controller to improve overall plant safety and increase the availability of ESDV’s for optimal response of the isolation valve in emergency situations. This integration also simplifies safety compliance by automatically recording partial stroke test results and emergency shutdown events, saving time and money while increasing efficiency. “By…
