IECEx Exd Hazardous Area Solution for Valve Position Indication

As plant requirements change, we are also challenged with new ways to incorporate modern valve accessories onto old equipment providing that vital interface between the field and control room.

The first task was to provide a gearbox and mounting to an existing DBB valve, the site required Exd hazardous area conformance, for this we used a standard switchbox and designed a lever mechanism to interface with the rising and rotating nature of the valve.

 

 

The result was both economical and completed all in-house at our facility. Final adjustments will be completed and it will head back to a refinery west of Melbourne.
