Location: Louisiana, USA Customer: Setpoint Integrated Solutions Key benefit: Robust, integrated safety control Case study IMI Herion valves help Setpoint protect critical operations Engineering GREAT Solutions Requirement Setpoint Integrated Solutions is a leading provider of repair services, integrated process solutions, valve automation, and instrumentation. They service downstream industries such as refineries, chemical, petrochemical, and pulp and paper plants, as well as offshore oil and gas. Supporting those industries required fluid control components and manifolds to meet SIL standards for safety instrumented systems. They needed long-lasting, robust valves that could work together to meet performance requirements even under the tough operating conditions of refineries and petrochemical plants. Additionally, they needed an expert supplier with the capacity to meet these stringent requirements economically. The reliability of the SIL 3 rating for automated valves on nitric acid, ammonia and urea manufacturing was a key requirement. Solution IMI Precision Engineering relied on their comprehensive line of high performance IMI Herion valves to meet Setpoint's requirements. IMI Herion valves are specifically designed for downstream and process industries and are valued for their reliability and safety certifications, including SIL 3 ratings. Two different redundant IMI Norgren valve manifolds (RVMs) were selected to integrate the valves: the V81 series with bypass and the V82 without bypass for different 1oo2 and 2oo2 safety and availability requirements. These are supplied in two, three and four-valve manifolds to meet various redundancy requirements. The safety of redundancy, coupled with precision manufacturing by the supplier were the keys to the selection of these products. Sector image used under license from © Norgren, Inc 2016
