Oil & Petroleum Valve Service & Repair Importance

The Importance of Valve Repair & Maintenance for Oil Refineries

Ensuring control and relief valves are in good condition plays a critical role in the efficiency and safety of chemical manufacturing plants.

If valve failure occurs, there can be serious consequences, including risk of environmental impact, operational downtime and losses, and worst of all, the safety of personnel.  A study several years ago in Chemical Engineering magazine found that 60% of fugitive emissions in refineries come from leaking valves.

So plant operators should pay particular attention to leaks, which can occur more frequently in control valves. Operations are becoming more and more integrated, so that means one failure can have far reaching consequences.

Valve maintenance and repair is a critical component to keeping refineries running smoothly, safely, and efficiently. Regularly scheduled inspection and maintenance is one of the major tools you have to battle operational issues and downtime.
