About the Program

Attendees to the Technical track at the Valve Industry Knowledge Forum can look forward to hearing from industry experts on leading technical issues facing the valve industry. This year’s Technical track features presentations on wastewater and ozone treatment, Mining and Slurry, and Corrosion Analysis. Also featured will be an update on laboratory testing of fugitive emissions for valves, packing and gaskets, as well as our ever-popular U.S. standards update. Tours, Pre-conference workshops, demonstrations, and the exhibit program along with ample networking opportunities will round out the Technical track education for attendees.

Who Should Attend?

The Technical Education track subject matter is specifically targeted to experienced technical and engineering personnel working with valves and related products.

 

Wednesday, April 10

  • Effectively Digitizing Valve Performance in the IIOT, Digital Twin WorldStan Hale, senior director at MRC Global, will bring attendees up to date on what’s happening in today’s Industrial Internet of Things, the digital world of smart plants, Industry 4.0 and what promises the new technologies hold. • Digitally Predicting On-Line Diagnostics of Valve Assemblies to Improve Run-time: Rayaz Ali, Senior Director, Instrumentation Technology, Emerson Automation Solutions, This presentation will cover issues and industry concerns related to FCE (Final Control Element) in field and highlight usage of Digital Solution in solving concerns and issues faced by process industry using conventional methodologies of maintenance. This presentation will also discuss using “Digital Solution”, that can move process control industry from traditional approach of preventive maintenance to predicative maintenance, resulting in great saving in operation and maintenance budget but also running plant more safely and optimally.
  • Laboratory Testing of Fugitive Emissions for Valves, Packing and Gaskets, Matt Wasielewski, president of Yarmouth Research and Technology, reviews the history of testing standards and brings attendees into the present world of published and upcoming revisions to standards.
  • SimulationHub – cloud base dedicated platform for valve flow coefficient, hydrodynamic torque prediction using CFD and machine learning, Sandip Jadhav, CEO, Centre for Computational Technologies, Using simulationHub platform, accurate valve capacity test procedures as per ANSI/ISA–75.02–2008 can be conducted using automated simulation process. This can become virtual alternative for flow loop testing and thus helping valve manufacture to perform upfront validation the design and generate the performance reports. This presentation will help attendees to understand how they can use these new technics in their design workflows.
  • Valve Coating: Lessons Learned, Neil Pittman, Senior Coatings Specialist, Lake Superior Consulting, Valve manufacturers are technically proficient in design, manufacture, and assembly of valves and actuators. That being the main focus, valve manufactures have opportunities to improve their coating operations. This presentation outlines several coating failures on valves from various manufacturers and how they could have been prevented.

 

Thursday, April 11

On the last day of the conference, a joint session is planned for the Technical and Manufacturing educational tracks. The joint session will feature topics pertaining to the future of industrial manufacturing, 3D sand printing, and hybrid additive manufacturing.

  • The Future of Industrial Manufacturing, Nick Sondej, Senior Applications Engineer with Markforged will address how 3D printing is having a huge impact on factories today; how it has changed and where it’s headed. This presentation will show attendees how 3D Printing is changing manufacturing and helping manufacturers around the world get to market faster and become more competitive.
  • Hybrid-Additive Manufacturing: Role of Mechanical Design and Traditional manufacturing processes in the Adoption of Metal AM, Guha Manogharan, Assistant Professor, Pennsylvania State University, The focus of this talk will be on two unique hybrid AM approaches: (1) How will a universal direct metal AM hybrid approach accelerate the adoption of AM? and (2) How should mechanical design methodologies and casting-hydrodynamics evolve to integrate casting processes through indirect metal AM? The former challenge can be answered by combining AM with traditional manufacturing processes without significant modification to existing CNC machine configuration and by integrating advanced DDM tools such as non-contact metrology and in-process tool-path generation. The latter challenge can be solved by re-thinking fundamentals of casting-hydrodynamics with freeform design approaches using 3D Sand-Printing.

THESE ARE JUST A FEW EXAMPLES OF TECHNICAL TRACK TOPICS. PLEASE SEE PROGRAM FOR A COMPLETE LISTING.

 

PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT HOURS

Attendees to the 2019 VMA Valve Industry Knowledge Forum will receive a certificate for twelve (12) Professional Development Hours (PDHs) for attending the Knowledge Forum. Additional hours will be given to those who attend the pre-conference workshop on April 9.
