Valve diagnostic system for nuclear utilities

25 July 2016

Emerson Process Management and Teledyne Test Services (TTS) have jointly developed and introduced the QUIKLOOK 3-FS diagnostic system, a platform for testing air-operated (AOV) and motor-operated (MOV) control valves used in the nuclear industry.

The dual platform is said to minimise the cost, time, and complexity of testing safety-significant valves and helps nuclear utility managers improve the safety and efficiency of their operations.
 
Traditionally, many valve maintenance teams at nuclear facilities have needed to buy separate test solutions for the two different kinds of valves. Teledyne’s QUIKLOOK platform, for example, was supporting MOV testing, and Emerson’s Fisher FlowScanner software was primarily used for AOV testing.
 
Emerson and TTS have simplified the process by providing a single AOV/MOV test platform. The QUIKLOOK 3-FS system combines FlowScanner circuitry and software into the TTS QUIKLOOK platform and provides capabilities not available in either previous product. Features include plug-and-play measurement sensor recognition and data-conversion utilities. The system’s user-interface software supports strain gauge measurement devices, supports up to 16 sensor channels, and enables interfaces to popular design-basis calculation and margin-analysis software utilities.
