Focal Points Engagement

Score Diagnostics recently took part in a well-attended and most enjoyable online “Teams” session with our UK-Based Focal Points, where we shared our knowledge, case studies and news on recent and forthcoming products and services developments.

On-Site Services, Asset Management and Valve Condition Monitoring and Diagnostics were the three key areas of our Group-wide business that we focused on in this session, specifically on how and where we are delivering increasing value to both our contract and non-contract customers, through the provision of our products and services in these areas.

We would like to say a big thank you again to all that took part in this session and we look forward to having more of these moving forward.

If you would like to know more about Score’s Valve Management Strategies, Valve Condition Monitoring Equipment and Services or On-Site Valve Repair and Maintenance Services capabilities, please do drop us an e-mail at; midas.enquiries@score-group.com

FE Journal Americas : Emissions Reduction Technical Article and Case Study

We would like to say a big thanks to Stephanie Matas and all the team at the Fugitive Emissions Journal (Americas), who published our follow-up MIDAS Meter® case study, in support of our recent article on “Reducing emissions through the use of Acoustic Emissions (AE) Valve Condition Monitoring Technology” (which is available to read through our LinkedIn Showcase page at – https://www.linkedin.com/feed/update/urn:li:activity:6676082519500177408 ).

Score Diagnostics are delighted to be working with them and to see this good news story being released.

The first part of the article focused on current market conditions and how emissions from unintended flaring can be reduced through the use of Acoustic Emissions (AE) Valve Condition Monitoring Technology.

The second part highlighted a real-life MIDAS Meter® case study – in support of the part 1 strategy piece – highlighting how certified Score Valve Services survey engineers recovered the equivalent of $340k per annum in lost product for our joint customer, as well as dramatically reducing their operating environmental impact, by reducing flare gas volumes by the equivalent of over 147.3 Lbs/Hr, through a fast and easy in-line survey of 62 flare line valves.

The full article is now available for circulation in pdf format and if you would like a copy, just let us know and we will happily share this with you.

Score Group Customers worldwide can benefit from the deployment of this simple to use, non-invasive valve condition monitoring equipment (MIDAS Meter®) so why not contact us today to realise your own savings…

4C Conference 2020

We received a great flow of traffic to our stand at the 4C Environmental Conference in Austin this year again. Philip and Dave were delighted at the turn out and thoroughly enjoyed catching up with old and new customers alike, discussing how we can help find and address problem valves and providing live demonstrations of our Valve Condition Monitoring Equipment and Systems.

If you didn’t get the chance to speak to Philip or Dave at the event, or if you would just like to know more about the Equipment & Systems we have and what solutions they could offer you,  head over to the Contact Us section on our webpage now and we will get back in touch.4C 2020 -Grouped

IPEIA Conference and Exhibition 2020

Thanks to everyone that visited our Score Canada booth at IPEIA 2020 in beautiful Banff (Alberta, Canada) this year. We received excellent feedback on our previous Intelligent Valve Management™ services provision from many of our existing customers in the Canadian market.

There was also a lot of excitement generated by our MIDAS Meter®, MIDAS® Sensor and V-MAP® products, for valve condition and performance monitoring. These products are designed to help process owners and operators optimise the reliability of critical valves, through deploying both Risk Based Inspection (RBI) and Continuous Monitoring (CM) strategies.

We are continuing to follow up on all leads generated from attending this event and look forward to working closely with all stakeholders in the Canadian market locally, on the further supply of all our products and services moving forward to optimise valve reliability over time.IPEIA 2020 - Grouped

Norwegian Sector North Sea Oil Production Platform’s V-MAP® System Extended

The manufacture and supply of hardware to expand one of our existing Norwegian Sector North Sea Oil Production Platform’s V-MAP® system has been completed with the client’s factory acceptance test (FAT) of the instrumentation cabinet being successfully certified.

On this project, “benchmarking” of the valve and actuator assemblies at the valve manufacturer’s works was also completed, to ensure all valves and actuators were functioning within the customer’s required specifications. This activity has also provided the project with ‘as new’ valve torque and actuator pressure profiles for comparison purposes over the valve assemblies’ life cycles.

Further offshore commissioning activities are scheduled for this project in Q2/Q3 of 2020.

The further expansion of this V-MAP® system again demonstrates our customers’ confidence in our V-MAP® system and the value they are gaining from it when coupled with Score’s extensive valve diagnostics knowledge and support.

V-MAP® Expansion Commissioned on North Sea Oil Production Platform

Score Diagnostics Limited recently successfully commissioned the expansion of one of our North Sea Offshore Platform Installations of V-MAP®, which added new valves from an existing platform and a newly constructed platform.

This brings the total number of valves monitored within this installation to 132. The feedback from our customer on this project has been excellent and they are looking forward to the enhanced Valve Insights™ that our system will provide them moving forward.VMAP Expansion - Grouped

Current Best Practices in Valve Condition & Performance Monitoring Seminars

Two private “invitation only” seminars on “Current Best Practices in Valve Condition and Performance Monitoring” were held in India, at the premises of our potential new in-country Partners (at Vadodara and in Mumbai).

Over 25 delegates from their existing customer base and a few of the company’s own personnel attended these sessions, giving us an immediate and very positive platform on which we were able to introduce our products and services.

We have reached agreement in principal on our future relationship and there will likely be an update on this in future news stories.Best Practises - Grouped

Flow Control Exchange (FCE) India 2019

We were delighted to be invited to introduce our MIDAS® range of valve condition and performance monitoring products and services in the Indian Marketplace at the Flow Control Exchange (FCE) Conference.

The event, held in the Mumbai Conference Centre, was very well attended and was supported by an adjoining exhibition, where local suppliers showed their latest innovations and products.

The engagement with – and feedback on – our presentations was very encouraging, with several key players in the market expressing strong interest in finding out more about our products and services and specifically the benefits they deliver to valve owners / process operators.

We are continuing to follow up on all opportunities generated at the event and look forward to extending our support for customers in the Indian market.FCE India 2019 - Final
