Paladon Systems Release the PST Controller

Automatic partial stroke testing for hydraulically actuated valves

PST Controller for partial valve stroking

Paladon Systems is pleased to announce the release of their PST Controller. Designed for either quarter-turn or linear hydraulically actuated valve systems, the PST Controller allows operators to automatically partial stroke test their valves on a regular basis. With a comprehensive test data logging capability, operators can now automatically prove compliance with any mandatory testing requirements, and implement cost effective preventative maintenance programs.

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.”
