Smart valve sensors implemented by Vopak in the Port of Rotterdam

Dutch tank storage company Vopak has partnered with Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) company TWTG to install valve sensors at Vopak’s terminals in the Port of Rotterdam. This is the first pilot of TWTG valve sensors, which will be installed across Vopak’s 68 terminals with over 250,000 valves in different variations. The IIoT sensors aim to improve employee safety, with all solutions designed to be retrofittable and ATEX-certified.

CIRCOR's RTK REflex Shut Off and Control Valve

The RTK REflex Shut Off and Control Valve by CIRCOR provides control and shut off functionality with a quick-change seat ring that speeds maintenance and reduces downtime by eliminating the need for special tools, with a wider range of sizes and pressure classes, as well as customisability for lower flow and higher pressure letdown.

Grundfos' pump gates get Fuzhou's rivers flowing

With a series of Grundfos pump gates, the Chinese city of Fuzhou is ridding its waterways of smelly, black water. The combination of smart water management with compact technology is allowing Fuzhou to once again create flow in its rivers and bring joy to the community.

Rapid and reliable pipeline leak detection

Pipelines are among the safest and most efficient means of transport.

For that reason, leak monitoring systems are a necessary part of the safety concept.

This webinar delves into the fundamental principle of the E-RTTM method for rapid and reliable leak detection, showcasing system potential by way of a sample case taken from the chemical industry.
