actuated control valves, air regulating dampers and other Final Control Elements are crucial hardware for plant automation. Fluctuating input signals, wear/fatigue of components and mechanical limitations can cause abnormal FCE behavior. Sticky valves, sluggish dampers can introduce or enhance process oscillations. OPTIMakx assesses operational data and reveals FCE health. Highlights excess usage, non-linearity, possible wear and design limitations. Helps plant team to move from ‘Fail&Fix’ to ‘Predict&Prevent’
