our value proposition
REDUCED HSE EXPOSURE
You do not have to unmount, lift, and transport the valve when using our system. The exposure to people, safety, operations, and material when working with heavy valves and cranes at height is significant. Inline's unit and operator are safely placed on the ground while testing is executed up to 20m away. Inline's built-in safety functions and automatic test protocols reduce the risk of human error.
REDUCED MAINTENANCE COST
The most significant cost contributor is removing and re-installing the valve. Inline's system eliminates this step, and our advanced analytics provides valuable input to optimize maintenance. Additionally, fast inline testing of valves provides flexibility and performance assurance between periodic refurbishment.
Removal and transport of a PSV to a workshop for testing can take several days or more. Additionally, why introduce calibration and handling risk by removing a PSV that can be tested inline? Instead of paper/email test certificates, Inline can automatically upload test data to your maintenance system, reducing time and various types of risk.
TRACEABILITY & INTEGRITY
Our system is self-calibrating, and its pre-programmed efficient test protocols assure high accuracy and repeatability of tests regardless of test conditions. In addition, our system will automatically track location, operator, and test data and connect it to the valve's digital information (historical data, tag data, etc.) and test protocols. As a result, the risk of operator error is also significantly reduced.
Our system includes advanced analytics that can help you optimize and reduce the cost of valve maintenance and valve selection. Analyzing historical data across assets, companies, operating conditions, and valve types can provide valuable insights into your safety and maintenance planning.
DIGITIZED & AUTOMIZED
Test data from the automatic test is synchronized with our cloud-based system. To leverage the value of the data, we can integrate it with your maintenance system. Digitization eliminates errors, risks, and time related to manually issuing and sending digital or hard copy test certificates. In addition, adding a workshop unit to the portable unit assures standardization and efficient testing across all valves.
