Developed with a two-fold purpose, redundant valve manifolds are now critical features in industries such as oil and gas, and in petrochemical processing plants. RVM systems were designed firstly to facilitate uptime, ensuring that even in the event of a valve failure the process continues to run. Secondly, the redundant valve manifold is part of a safety instrumentation system; an RVM ensures that..
Manufacturers and processing plants are increasing their levels of automation, and with that comes a demand for greater control, accuracy of positioning and repeatability. There is also now the requirement to move loads over longer distances quickly whilst maintaining the level of accuracy offered by electromechanical actuators. The solution to all these demands?
