Paladon Systems Release the PST Controller
Automatic partial stroke testing for hydraulically actuated valves
Supporting HART, Foundation Fieldbus and Profibus communications, the PST Controller can be retrofitted to any existing hydraulically actuated valve, or supplied as part of a new valve actuation system.
“We are seeing a significant increase in the Oil & Gas industry for mandatory partial stroke testing of valves used in critical applications such as emergency shutdown and emergency isolation; and for operators to be able to prove to auditors that this testing is being undertaken,” explains Senior Sales Engineer Richard Hobbs. “Pneumatic smart partial valve stroke test systems have been around for several years, but what makes the PST Controller unique is that it can be used in hydraulically actuated valves systems. Leveraging the innovative technology developed for the TVC Positioner, we are pleased to be able offer our customers yet another solution to their current valve automation headaches and challenges.”
