SAMSON will join over 10,000 companies worldwide by implementing the US Customs and Border Security Customs-Trade Partnership Against Terrorism (C-TPAT) program best practices at the new larger manufacturing and logistics facility in Baytown, TX.
Having a combined salesforce of almost 300, this representative network gives SAMSON customers greater access to its high-quality linear and rotary line of control valves and accessories.
As of November 1, 2014, SAMSON Controls, Inc. absorbed both SAMSON Products, the production company, located next door in Baytown and SAMSON Project Engineering, the project management company, located in the Houston energy corridor.
Cavitation can occur when the pressure of the process media changes as it passes through a control valve, resulting in increased noise and possible damage of the valve.
Steam Pressure and Temperature control – In one unit.
Process media in the chemical and petrochemical industries can be comprised of a gas/vapor and liquid phase as it enters a control valve. This article examines the calculations for sizing control valves that are used in such processes.
Human error and technical failures have caused some of the worst chemical and petrochemical accidents. This article responds to the changing responsibilities and roles of the many entities involved in preventing such accidents.
Partial stroke testing means partial movement of the safety valve without interfering with the operation process in any way.
Some industrial processes, such as the Parex™ process in the petrochemical process or compressor bypass control in the energy sector, need valves with quick and precise acting movements. This article examines those processes and the control needs
Process valves can be the most decisive factor for measuring and calculating the SIL Level for the safety instrumented function (SIF).
In the oil and gas market sector, many valves are high power [∆p x flow] converters and in combination with fluid corrosion and fluid contamination the valve body and trim may be parts subject to wear.
Digital positioners offer features regarding improved process plant reliability and maintenance.
Self-operating regulators have existed for over 100 years to control temperature and pressure of process media. This article outlines how cost effective these regulators can be.
Seat leakage may not be detected from the outside of a valve if the tight shut-off is impaired causing deterioration of control. This article examines how uncovering seat leakage can be done using appropriate sensors.
Designing plants under current time constraints has proved difficult for engineers possibly resulting in "quick and dirty" sizing of control valves.
In refineries the process media flowing through valves are primarily liquids. With liquids, critical operating conditions caused by cavitation or flashing may occur.
Standards for handling safety-instrumented systems have become widely accepted, but when to implement them in daily operations can lead to uncertainty.
