Emergency aid for leaking valves and manifolds
When valves leak in highly sensitive areas, every minute counts. Therefore the plant operator has to count on the fast support of its supplier. We, at AS-Schneider create an organisational and structural prerequisites for rapid, flexible production, optimum delivery service and expert on-site support within the company’s internal safety and quality concept. Best example is our cooperation with Binzagr.
How can cathodic protection prevent corrosion?
Pipe corrosion can be most damaging to industrial property. Corrosion problems have been increasing in frequency and severity over the past three decades, reducing the pipe system’s life expectancy down to only a few years. In the United States alone corrosion costs the industry more than a billion dollars a year. Cathodic protection helps against corrosion. As a non-conductive barrier you can use a dielectric isolation kit.
What it Actually Means to Be Customer-Centric
Working as a CSO, one could think that of course, you must be customer-centric… But I noticed that some of my peers don’t really understand what customer centricity actually means, they are still too much “product” focused. So, what does customer-centricity mean? Does defining it even matter? It definitely does!
Work-life balance: Professional success without burnout
Work and personal life – it’s not easy to keep both in balance. But how can employers promote a good work-life balance? This question has been a great concern to us at AS-Schneider for quite some time. It is also a topic that plays a major role in professional life, especially for the so-called “millennials”, our young junior staff and future apprentices. Therefore, we have decided to write a blog post.
Challenge of Design Verification Test (DVT/TAT)
In practice there is often misinterpretation in understanding Design Verification Test (DVT). DVT is formerly known as TAT (Type Acceptance Test) – a Shell Specification (MESC SPE 77/300A). In the industry, there are many different manufacturers offering valves meeting Shell requirements. Users should also find out if these valves also meet the full Shell MESC SPE 77/300A Specification. This misinterpretation made our colleague Melvin Tan write this post.
Cryogenic valves for LNG application - Part 2 of 2
In our second part of the cryogenic valve series (LNG application) Luca Baumeister, Design Engineer at AS-Schneider Group, would like to responsive on questions like “What are the challenges of using cryogenic?”, “Selecting a valve for cryogenic service.”, “How can engineers ensure tightness of cryogenic valves?” and “What should engineers pay attention to during assembly of cryogenic valves?” Enjoy the article.
Cryogenic valves for LNG application - Part 1 of 2
One of our customers needed cryogenic valves as primary isolation valves for a pressure measurement on a container ship (LNG application). There were many points to be considered in this project. For this reason, Luca Baumeister, Design Engineer at AS-Schneider Group, decided to write a series of articles about cryogenic valves in March.
Close Coupled Flush Ring
Close Coupled Flush Rings: Users often ask us why we recommend close coupled flush rings. That’s easy to answer: Users can save time and money while increasing their safety level. Learn in our latest post: When to use Flush Rings? and Why use Close Coupled Products?
Passion & customer-centricity – A decisive factor to success
The most common, and perhaps the greatest, barrier to customer centricity is the lack of a customer-centric organizational culture. Tim-Frederik Kohler, Global CSO at AS-Schneider Group, believes passion in combination with customer-centric mindset is a decisive factor to success. Read the full article now.
Provide usability for EPCs
EPCs stop thinking about whether the alignment of pressure gauge display was correct depending upon the choice of measuring instrument. Read how to handle that challenge.
