MIDAS® Valve Diagnostics : New Case Study Videos

Score Diagnostics have recently developed a new series of video case studies, to help both our customers and team members alike, gain an insight into some of the key benefits of using the MIDAS Meter® valve condition monitoring device (such as troubleshooting problem valves, non-invasive valve testing inline, avoiding costly alternative valve testing techniques such as pressure build-up tests, pre-shutdown / turnaround planning, flare line loss and emissions reduction, backlog maintenance prioritisation and recovery, maintenance cost reduction, environmental protection, efficiency maximisation, etc).

We encourage you to view these consistently formatted short explanatory videos. We hope you find them to be of interest and value to you and your local customers, whom we recommend you share these resources with, as appropriate.

This latest series of case study videos add to an already extensive range of resources for MIDAS® Valve Diagnostics products and services which are readily available on our YouTube Channel, as well as the media sections on the MIDAS® Valve Diagnostics website. Don’t forget to subscribe / follow, to receive our latest updates as they are released.

Should you have any questions on reviewing these resources, or if you would like further information or a quotation for any of our valve condition monitoring equipment or services, please contact us immediately, by email, at; midas.enquiries@score-group.com  We look forwardPicture1 to hearing from you.

PEMAC Webinar

It was an honour and a pleasure to be invited as panellists and speakers at the Plant Engineering And Maintenance Association of Canada (PEMAC), Fort McMurray Chapter, Online Professional Development Event on “Capabilities and Tools for Carbon Emissions Monitoring and Reduction”.

The mission of PEMAC Asset Management Association of Canada is to be “A professional association enabling excellence in maintenance, reliability, and asset management through collaboration, applied learning & leadership”.

Given Score Group’s long track record and experience in optimising valve reliability through Intelligent Valve Management™, we are very well aligned to help them fulfil their mission.

Despite the 1am UK start time for one of our presenters, the audience was fresh and alert in Canada – who were of course 7 hours behind. We received some great questions and look forward to helping all stakeholders in attendance with their Fugitive Emissions / Carbon Emissions Reduction efforts moving forward.

If you would like to find out more about how we can help you reduce your emissions, please contact us now by email at; midas.enquiries@score-group.com

New Score Diagnostics Limited Partner – BAREP Clemessy Services (France)

Score Diagnostics Limited have extended their global Partnering program reach, by teaming up with BAREP Clemessy Services, to better support their existing and potential new customers in the French Process Industries Market.

BAREP have already been promoting the MIDAS Meter® in their local market and following key personnel training, they have been out on their customer’s sites completing their initial round of valve surveys with their first owned kit. The results from these surveys have been receiving excellent feedback from customers as they are helping to reduce operating costs by troubleshooting problem valves and correctly focusing maintenance activities and investment on addressing the bad actors.

Valve condition monitoring (for through-seat leak detection, quantification and trending over time) is a service which BAREP intend to invest in growing significantly throughout the remainder of 2020, and beyond. We, of course, wish them every success in these pursuits.

If you are operating in France and would like a local demonstration of how the MIDAS Meter® can help deliver valve population performance improvements and increased process uptime and efficiency, please contact us by email at midas.enquiries@score-group.com and we will put you directly in touch with the correct personnel to deliver that.

First “Online” MIDAS Meter® Theory Training Course Delivered In Europe

We all agree that our “normal” world of work has been completely changed around us during the Covid-19 pandemic. In light of this, and just like everyone else in the Group, we at Score Diagnostics have been focused on putting our efforts into giving our customers the best possible ongoing support via our online platforms.

We are delighted to confirm that we have recently successfully delivered to one of our Europe-based customers the first ever 1-Day MIDAS Meter® Theory Training Course, which we have taken online, given the global travel restrictions we are currently facing.

Whilst this version of the course certainly doesn’t offer the same practical learning experiences for delegates as our usual on-site presenter-led sessions, it has demonstrated that at least some of the training experience can be successfully delivered online.

This will no doubt be of great comfort to all stakeholders and has helped us keep the continuous improvement of asset integrity management heading in the right direction during these challenging times.

Partnership Agreement Extension Signed – JSC Energomash (Russia)

Score Diagnostics Limited have extended their Partnering relationship in the Russian market with Veliky Novgorod based company JSC Energomash (Part of the NBM Group), to continue to support their existing and potential new customers in the Russian Process Industries Market.

This is the second extension to the Partnership and both parties are looking forward to continuing to develop this trading relationship, which has seen both organizations investing in the local approvals and certification of the MIDAS Meter® to Russian compliance requirements.

Following their recent MIDAS Meter® promotional efforts, JSC Energomash have secured a new contract with a local refinery, which is expected to be delivered in October 2020. Training of customers’ personnel will follow, however, the first part of this may have to be delivered online as a result of the Pandemic and associated travel restrictions.

The refinery team are looking forward to optimizing their valve maintenance, as guided by the condition monitoring results provided by MIDAS Meter® surveys (in line valve testing for through-seat leak detection, quantification and trending over time).

If you are operating in Russia and would like a local demonstration of how the MIDAS Meter® can help deliver valve population performance improvements and increased process uptime and efficiency, please contact us by email at midas.enquiries@score-group.com and we will put you directly in touch with the correct personnel to deliver that.
