[Checklist] Is Your Valve Missized?

January 31, 2019

It’s easy for a missized valve to get into service, even when everyone is doing their best, but a poorly sized valve can cause several problems for your plant. If you purchase an oversized valve you may have high maintenance costs, poor control, and as a result of poor control, off-spec product. How can you identify a missized valve in your plant?

Check for these things:

  • Are you having problems shutting off your valve?
  • Are you replacing trim repeatedly?
  • Does your valve need frequent maintenance or repair?
  • Are you experiencing issues with control?
  • Is your valve consistently operating at 20% open or less?
  • Do your operating parameters differ from your design parameters?
  • Is your valve using more energy than it should?
