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.
We recently carried out a MIDAS Meter® Demonstration in a process plant in Germany, which delivered another great result.
A Ball valve was set up in the customer’s research and development flowloop and tested at 8 Barg differential pressure. Unknown to our demonstrator, there was also a flow meter installed in the flowloop, which had been integrated to verify the results reported by the MIDAS Meter®.
It was an expected, but nonetheless satisfying, result for both Score Diagnostics Limited and our potential new customer, when the leak rate reported by the MIDAS Meter was almost identical to that measured by the calibrated flow meter.
We look forward to working closely with this new customer moving forward, on their implementation of our MIDAS Meter® technology within their valve management programme.
Our MIDAS Meter® valve leak detection, quantification and trending tool is best known for the major benefits it delivers to our existing customers in industries such as Oil & Gas Production, Petrochemicals Processing, Nuclear and Fossil Fuels Energy Production, Utility Companies and the Marine industry.
We are however delighted to have completed some successful trials for a potential new customer in the food processing industry – an area where we have not previously been focused.
We do understand of course that leaking isolation valves are just as much (if not more) of a problem in food and drinks manufacturing and processing operations. So, if you are in that market sector and have leaking valves that are causing production disruption, process downtime or losses, please contact us now, to find out more about how we can help you reduce or completely remove your valve performance problems.
One of our most remote existing customers invited us to train a team of six new survey technicians on our MIDAS Meter® Certified Training Course at their site in Central Asia.
The three day training course included on-site supervised surveying in temperatures down to -12 Degrees Centigrade, but as you can see from the photo, the low temperatures on site did nothing to dampen the delegates’ enthusiasm, as they rated the equipment and the training 100% “Excellent”.
