Valve Asset Management Program

ValveOne

Furmanite utilizes an innovative valve asset management program, to enable owners and operators of process and production plants to track and efficiently manage their entire valve asset inventory, across multiple plants where applicable, and help reduce through-life costs.

Developed in-house, ValveOne is used to log and record all valve repair and testing work carried out globally. Every valve we test or repair is registered in the system. The system is the basis for all shop documentation, certification, specifications and photographs related to Valve Repair. It is structured in such a way as to reflect our Valve Repair quality assurance program.

We currently have over 1,200 Customer Sites, 45,000 Valves and 55,000 Repairs recorded in Valve One

ValveOne  is accessible by you the Customer.

ValveOne provides real-time monitoring of all a customer’s  valves (in service and in storage), with comprehensive records of location, application, valve properties, certification, maintenance history, and repair and testing frequency requirements, for every valve. The system can be securely accessed by the customer from any internet-enabled computer, and customized reports can be viewed or printed, allowing the complete valve inventory to be monitored in detail at any time.

ValveOne Valve Asset Management System

The program will not only help to simply keep an efficient log of  tens of thousands of valves and their current status, condition and history, but also to plan effectively for future maintenance outages;

  • maintain valve maintenance schedules;
  • implement a predictive/preventive maintenance approach;
  • keep track of stock and order spare parts;
  • identify any recurring problems;
  • monitor costs tied-up in inventory;
  • provide real-time tracking of repair status during a maintenance program.

The ValveOne program can be interrogated to search by customer, valve, application, or repair criteria.

 

 

In each case, searches can be refined by selected criteria. For example, within a customer’s named plant or plant unit, valves could be identified by anything from tag, serial number, model and manufacturer to current set pressure or orifice, or next test or repair due. The columns of information shown can also be customized. Searches can be named and saved.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The results of any searches can be processed as printable reports of even exported to Excel.

 

 

 

For any repair, full job details can be viewed, from location and valve details, to the level of repair required and the reason, as well as any pre-test requirement. Full documentation also shows who performed previous repair work. As each portion of the repair is completed, the repair status is displayed.

As the valve is disassembled, the as-found condition is documented in the program. This includes logging replacement parts needed, which automatically populates a parts requisition that is emailed to the given address, with entry of a purchase order number confirming that the parts have been ordered. Test information and results and quality control check-off are also documented.

A full history report detailing all maintenance and testing and certification can be called up at any time on a per valve basis.

 As work is carried out by Furmanite the program is updated. The records are maintained and hosted by Furmanite, and are available for customer access for reference and future maintenance planning. All completed repairs have on-line copies of travellers (route cards) and test records available to view or print out.

The program also has the capability to export and import data so it can interface with other maintenance management systems.

Furmanite’s ValveOne valve asset management program is now available to customers around the World.
