Severn upgrades valve management

Severn Unival Ltd is using PC-based data capture software Transform from Terrington Data Management, York, to upgrade its management of all UK valves and platforms used by oil and gas companies. Valves are monitored, tested and repaired through its workshops in Huddersfield, Aberdeen, Grangemouth, Gloucester and Widnes as part of the platform healthcare contracts to improve performance and safety. The company uses hand-held Transform to record details of all valves, whether manufactured by or new to the company, to create a database of details including the owner, history, status, performance, specification, application and destination, of every valve leaving its workshops. The use of Transform enables Severn Unival to operate its Performance+ trouble-shooting service by identifying patterns in valve failure, which can be used to offer a pro-active solution. Transform, which has a sister system, IndEX, used for hazardous area electrical (ATEX 137) inspections, is compatible with many handheld terminals and operating platforms. Any paper-based form can be replicated electronically, usually for industrial inspection applications. Asset management information, such as equipment installation date, manufacturer and serial number, can be built into the system and inspection forms added underneath to automatically update existing information.
